Rubber profiles can be used as seals or protection in case of sharp edges. At HTR we do not have standard profiles. We develop an optimal profile for every customer application. Naturally it is in line with specifications required in the application but also taking into account wishes on lifespan, mountability, etc. The tool investment for a rubber extrusion profile is relatively low compared to injection molding tools. However, the minimum order quantity for rubber extrusion is often larger than expected. This is due to a minimal amount of rubber compound that has to be mixed and the length of rubber extrusion lines, which results in a considerable start-up length from the setting of the line.
