What and where are they used for?
Currently, a large number of mechanical components for the industrial and transportation sectors are manufactured from rubber mounted on couplings or metal reinforcements, so there is an important segment in the adhesive market aimed at bonding between metal parts and the rubber component.
Depending on the service conditions for which they are designed, different types of elastomers are used, such as Nitrile, Natural rubber, EPDM, SBR, etc., and different metals such as steel, aluminum, copper, among others, for which the systems The adhesives used to join them must be specific for each of these materials.
On the other hand, the joint must be resistant to the operating conditions to which the component is subjected, that is; vibrations, high stresses, heat, humidity, corrosion, etc.
