Many adhesion failures can be attributed to poor preparation and/or contamination. Elastomer adhesion must be a process by where procedural controls are maintained and followed at all times. We at PMR have improved our ability to prevent this from happening (down to 2% of a production run) by having a control area just for adhesives and primers.
When your projects require a failsafe rubber to metal bonding application, look to PMR for your bonding solutions. We use only the best adhesives (such as Chemlock & RD Abbot) to bond most any material. We can even bond materials after vulcanization of the elastomers.
We have 7 newly acquired 150 ton presses for all types of elastomer molding and bonding needs plus the control area set aside just for the bonding application. We have the expertise and the experience to help you meet your objectives.
