Leading Technology and Innovation for Your Elastomer Extrusion Requirements

 

Davis-Standard’s elastomer solutions support global markets for tires, automotive hoses, adhesives and sealants, recreational equipment, construction and medical applications. We are industry leaders in turnkey rubber and silicone technology to support a range of applications including rubber hose, rubber and silicone gaskets, rubber barrier products, silicone tubing and weatherstrip. 

 

With elastomer extruders in multipurpose, hot and cold feed, silicone, vacuum vented, pin barrel and smooth barrel designs, our extensive offering of elastomer systems provides a specific solution for nearly every elastomer application. Our engineers work with you to supply elastomer equipment that meets your precise product requirements, including technology for product curing and in-line processing.

 

Our advantage lies in decades of experience and knowledge of elastomer properties and processes for coextrusion, rubber straining and continuous vulcanization. That is why we also supply custom feedscrew designs, lab equipment, integrated process controls and complete systems—one stop shopping for turnkey rubber extrusion.

Contact Us to learn how Davis-Standard can address your elastomer requirements with extruders, components, and complete systems for both rubber and silicone products.


Davis-Standard has extensive process and extrusion expertise in the area of medical and industrial silicone tubing worldwide. We understand there is a difference between extruding an industrial fluid transfer tube and extruding an infantile catheter. Our engineers work with you to supply the correct customized equipment to meet your precise product requirements including horizontal or vertical extrusion, short-wave or medium-wave cure systems, custom designed dies and downstream equipment, or precision cutting and winding.

An example of our preferred extrusion technology in this area includes our DSR silicone extruder. Advantages include our patented pneumatic roll feed system to provide uniform, consistent feed rate, chrome plating and stainless steel contact surfaces for medical environments, available hinge-roll feed roll section for easy cleanout and compound changes, rugged Davis-Standard gearboxes, and proven feedscrew designs to maximize output and stability.
