Our rubber boots and bellows are manufactured using a variety of methods to produce long-lasting, high-quality products in a range of sizes, shapes, and configurations.
- Injection, transfer, and compression molding – parts can be molded with varying wall thicknesses, shapes, sizes, and using a wide range of materials and hardness.
- Latex dip molding – Parts are seamless and have a uniform wall thickness. Latex dip molded parts are available in natural rubber or Neoprene® 1 Latex.
- RF welding from thin urethane or vinyl films – Used to manufacture bellows that are strong, offering a large variation in compressed to the extended length, lightweight, and flexible.
- Fabric-reinforced – Used to manufacture fabric bellows that require the additional strength and protection of a rubber coating.
