    4. LSR
    5. NBR
    6. NR
    7. SBR
    8. Si
    9. TPV (Santoprene)
  2. Types of Rubber Mixing Processes

    2. Open Mill Rubber Mixing
    3. Rubber Preform(s)
  3. Types of Rubber Molding Processes
    1. Compression
    2. Chemlock Applications (Spray and chain-on-edge capabilities)
    3. Hot Runner Injection
    4. Insert
    5. LSR
    6. Post Cure

  5. Dimensional Tolerance
    1. M1 = Precision molding, which requires precision molds, fewer cavities per tool, tight rubber mix controls, and precision measuring equipment
    2. M2 = High-quality molding involves much of the close control of precision molding
    3. M3 = Good quality moldings
    4. M4 = Moldings where dimensional control is non-critical
