Rubber Mouldings like the ones available from https://www.meadex.co.uk/rubber-moulding/ are a way in which items can be moulded into shape using techniques such as rubber injection. The moulding can then be used to make products in that design.

The mouldings themselves can be made in a variety of different shapes, sizes and designs, almost anything is possible. The amount of mouldings that you need can also be accommodated as can the number of final items that you need to be created from the mould. You can find companies that can produce large numbers of items in batch production as well as those companies that can produce smaller numbers in bespoke packages.

The type of material that is used in the mouldings can also differ depending on the individual company’s requirements.  Some of the most common materials that are used include neoprene, natural rubber, silicone and nitrile.

As rubber is such a versatile material these mouldings can be used across a variety of business sectors, including car manufacturing, medicine, aerospace, energy and much much more. With the introduction of synthetic rubber compounds it has become easier to quickly create the nmouldings and mass produce the items that are needed, without the need for waiting for the natural rubber to be harvested and processed.
