Rubber to Metal Bonding Process

Surface Preparation of Rubber and Metal -The bonding process begins with surface preparation, ensuring the surface is clean, rough, and oil-free, often using a chemical or primer to enhance adhesion, depending on the rubber and metal materials used.

Adhesive Application -After cleaning and oil-freeing the surfaces, adhesive is applied to the metal, sometimes using a two-coat system with a primer and top-coat, followed by heat-drying for optimal bonding.

Molding -After the adhesive dries, the crucial step is molding the rubber and metal together through the curing process. The materials are placed in a cavity under specific heat and pressure, activating the adhesive chemicals and initiating the bonding reaction
