Grahneis ensures that such compounds perform as promised. Decades of experience make this company from Melle in northwestern Germany an ideal partner for the development and realization of compounds to successfully face a broad array of challenges. The materials used for a rubber-metal compound range from cast iron to aluminum as well as stainless steel. Stainless steel or plastics are used when particular corrosion durabilities are required. Using a rubber-plastic compound means lighter weight compared with conventional metal compounds.
The adhesives used generate an optimal bond between rubber and composite material during vulcanization. Once this is done, one would literally have to destroy the material to separate the components.
