Rubber and Plastic Manufacturing for Home Appliances

The materials used to manufacture home appliances determine their function and dependability. At Clark Rubber and Plastic, we understand the importance of quality materials for home appliance production. We are a plastic manufacturer that provides reliable rubber and plastic products to retailers in various industries, including home appliance companies.

Methods for Manufacturing Rubber and Plastic for Home Appliances

We use specialized processes and techniques to create the highest quality rubber and plastic components for home appliance production. Our methods include:

Plastic Injection Molding

We use high-precision plastic injection molding machines to create plastic components for home appliances such as washers and dryers, refrigerators, and dishwashers. The process utilizes melted plastic and a mold to create precise components that meet the product design specifications. Some of the plastics we produce through plastic injection molding include polycarbonate, nylon, HDPE, ABS, and thermoplastics.

Plastic Extrusion

Plastic extrusion produces continuous lengths of plastic parts used in appliances such as cooktops, microwaves, ovens, and other kitchen appliances. We are a high-quality plastic manufacturer with equipment that can co- or tri-extrude, meaning it can combine two or three materials into a single product. We use various certified grades of materials to create the highest-quality components for home appliance production.

Rubber Molding

Rubber injection molding produces rubber components for appliances such as power cords, hoses, sealing gaskets, and seals. It is a process used to create products that have intricate shapes and require a high level of precision. We use hot and cold rubber molding to create products such as Neoprene, Viton, EPDM, Nitrile, and SBR.

Rubber Extrusion

Rubber extrusion is a process that produces continuous lengths of rubber components for appliances. Our equipment can make complex shapes with high levels of accuracy and precision. We rely on custom dies instead of presses to create rubber components for appliances such as air conditioners, washing machines, and dishwashers. Our specialists can produce rubber parts with various durometers, textures, and colors.

Quality Assurance and Testing

Our products are designed and manufactured with quality in mind, so we have stringent testing and quality assurance procedures. We use advanced inspection methods, including:

Ultrasonic Testing

We use ultrasonic testing to inspect rubber and plastic components for any defects or irregularities. The process involves using high-frequency sound waves to detect flaws in the material before it’s approved for production. It’s a non-destructive test where we can quickly and accurately identify any potential issues. The process is also used to inspect components for dimensional accuracy.

Tensile Testing

The components we create for home appliance production must undergo tensile testing to determine their strength and durability. We use specialized equipment to test the components for any signs of weakness, and if they do not meet our strict standards, they are rejected. Our products are meant to endure the rig of appliance use, and our rigorous testing supports their dependability.

Chemical Analysis

Chemical analysis tests for any inconsistencies or anomalies in the material. Our experts analyze the chemical composition of the materials to determine the best grade and type of plastic or rubber for each application. We also test for any potential risks or hazards that could arise from using certain types of materials.
