Rubber for the Automotive Industry
The Automotive industry is one of the fastest moving industries and is truly global. Innovation and new product development are performed at pace and specialist manufacturers in particular appreciate the rapid and agile response to supporting this process that Walker Rubber provides.
Whether you need to manufacture and supply existing components, or you need to test a new design on a road going prototype, Walker Rubber can assist you with your supply of high-performance rubber components.
Rubber Components Supplied by Walker Rubber
Components supplied by Walker Rubber often experience the extreme conditions and performance requirements that todays’ track and on highway sports cars are designed to excel in and of course the finest materials and manufacturing processes are used to meet these exacting requirements. We are also active in ensuring heritage vehicles from vintage cars to buses and off highway vehicles can continue to give pleasure to thousands of enthusiasts. From every imaginable seal and hose to tyres, matting and the humble mud flap, rubber components are essential to the automotive industry.
The unique properties of rubber make it ideal for many automotive applications and the range of polymers and compounds available ensure that every specific application is catered for. Although different types of rubber have their own characteristics, a compound can be selected to optimise the following generally useful properties:
• Abrasion resistance • Resistance to chemicals and grease • Excellent resistance to oil • Resistance to hot and cold temperatures • High tear strength • Ozone resistance
