Molded Silicone and Rubber Parts

Rubber Part Molding

For over 34 years, experts from BCI Rubber continue to perfect the art of moulding custom rubber parts.

moulage-caoutchoucThe elastic properties of rubber make the ideal choice for, among other things, absorbing shock and vibration or to seal.

In order to find the ideal  elastomer compound that perfectly matches the mechanical, chemical or thermal stresses imposed on the part to be molded, we collaborate with experienced chemists. Thus, in addition to the quality of casting, each part we make is ideal for the intended use.

 

Our Equipments

In addition, BCI Rubber has 36 presses, ranging from 30 to 1500 ton capacity, allowing us to produce small and large-scale parts. Basically, if you can describe it, we can create it!

  • Maximum dimensions: 130” (1 300 mm) length x 52” (1 322 mm) width
  • Weight: from a few grams to 1 000 kg

  2. Seal for machinery in contact with oil, grease and gasoline

Silicone Part Molding

Thanks to their heat resistance and flexibility, silicone parts are often used in specialized fields.

They are used in areas such food, electric and medicine. To meet the standards required by these industries, the silicone rubber used at BCI Rubber holds all necessary approvals for food applications and a few medical applications.

 

 

Assembling Metal-Polymer

metal-polymere

BCI Rubber has mastered the production of hybrid parts, combining metals and polymers.

We have developed expertise and innovative techniques to ensure a strong adhesion between metal, rubber, ceramic and silicone. The result is an endless possibility of combinations that could apply to all areas.
