Finishing and Plating Specifications  

The following charts provide an application overview in for typical rubber / elastomer materials used to coat products, such as rubber rolls and rubber rollers. Rubber coating application is a fundamental consideration in the selection of coating material. Temperature, friction, material being coated, should all be considered when selecting the appropriate rubber / elastomer coating. As always, Engineers Edge recommends contacting an applications specialist with design and engineering requirements to ensure best material selection.
