The term “building up” brings together several specialities whose common feature is manual intervention.
The parts are assembled uncured, then vulcanised in an autoclave. They offer performances equivalent to all other means of manufacturing and without any comparison to techniques of cold bonding which have only limited applications.
Rubber building up enables an infinite variety of shapes to be produced.
It is used for:
- parts which are impossibe to mould because of their size or shape,
- internal and external linings of metal parts or bioler parts to prortect them against abrasion, reduce jarring, noise, etc.,
- prototypes or on-off parts.
BORFLEX has high-capacity vulcanisation facilities in workshops covering 600 m².
