Custom Rubber, Silicone & Plastic Extrusions

Custom Extrusions

Cooper Standard can help you through the entire extrusion process – from choosing the right material to using the most cost-effective manufacturing methods.

Work with our application engineers to identify designs and processes that can enhance installation and performance of your products. No matter what stage your project is in, we can develop and refine simple or highly complex profiles.

Featured Capabilities

Coatings

Our various coating options can serve as an assembly aid or reduce noise, wear and abrasion. This process can be used to coat entire sheets or a localized area on each part.

Color Match

We offer color matching capabilities for silicone and organic compounds. For specific color requirements, please provide us with a sample or Pantone (PMS) number so we can match the color to your needs.

Cutting Processes

We can finish products with a variety of cutting processes including: cut to length, punching, die-cutting, notching, drilling, kiss-cutting, slitting and custom cutting. In some cases, these finishing processes can be good alternatives to rubber molding.

Drilling & Punching

Seals may require vent holes that enable the part to collapse under pressure. During part extrusion, holes can be drilled at precise, uniform intervals. Cut-to-length parts also can be placed in a punch press where a die creates the intended feature.

Flocking

Flocking is a velour-textured material that can be applied to many polymers and dyed to match virtually any color. Flocked surfaces help reduce friction and water absorption while dampening vibration and offering thermal insulation.

Identification Printing

Identification marks on products can be crucial to manufacturing efficiency and quality. From an intricate logo to customer part numbers, we can provide identification markings that best fit your requirements.

Lamination

Lamination (tape) can often eliminate mechanical fastening systems (staples, nails or retaining clips) and their inherent challenges. Many different heat-activated and pressure-sensitive adhesives are available to meet your requirements.

Packaging

In addition to designing materials and profiles, we can specify and order your private label packaging to provide a complete product solution.

Push-Pin Seals

These seals provide an alternative to standard laminated seal methods with pins that are spaced according to your requirements.

Splicing

Splicing can be used to form a simple O-ring or a complex multi-side product. We offer cold and hot splicing as well as transfer molded joints and vulcanized corners.

Multi-Durometer Extrusions

Multiple-durometer products combine two or more materials through a single die so that the extrusions merge together into one structure.
