Molded rubber parts in hydraulic systems

30. September 2019

Hydraulics are crucial across many technical applications. Basically, they are utilized whenever a system is required to transmit a force or energy with the aid of a liquid. Examples in which hydraulics provide power transmission are motor vehicles, agricultural machinery, brake systems, machine tools, presses, injection molding machines or lifting platforms. Rubber parts are essential for hydraulic systems to function. Without rubber molded parts such as seals, scrapers and O-rings, there would be no hydraulic systems. In this blog post, we discuss the basics of molded rubber parts required by hydraulic systems, describing the special demands placed on the performance of the elastomers, and the main materials suitable for use in hydraulics.

NBR (acrylonitrile butadiene rubber)

05. August 2019

The automotive industry is a major consumer of technical moldings and other rubber products. Its specific requirements, particularly regarding resistance to mineral oils, fuels and greases, have made NBR a vitally important raw material in this sector. Acrylonitrile butadiene rubber, developed by Bayer in the 1930s, in short: nitrile rubber, is an excellent solution for many applications due to its properties and therefore will be the focus of this blog post.

Rubber components for the medical technology market

03. June 2019

Irrespective of whether a molded rubber part functions as a stand-alone medical device or is a component in a medical device – the medical technology market is heavily dependent on molded rubber parts. The manufacture of rubber parts requires a range of considerations to be taken into account, both in terms of the production technology and organization, to ensure compliance in this safety-sensitive sector. What exactly suppliers to the medical technology sector need to pay particular attention to is explained in this blog entry. In addition to production-specific challenges, we take a close look at aspects such as biocompatibility, quality management and cleanroom production.
