Properties

Rubber to metal bonding

The sherardized surface gives excellent adhesion to rubber-metal bondings.

Without pretreatment

A primer can be applied without pretreatment. The result is a corrosion protected, reliable and resilient rubber-metal compound.

As result, the number of manufacturing steps can be minimized and costs can be reduced.

 

Applications

In the automotive industry and in the transportation industry sherardised rubber components are used in suspension and damping systems.

In the agricultural sector zinc diffusion coated and vulcanized rods made of hardened steel are used in conveyor belts to prevent damage to the agricultural products.
