Gulf works with comprehensive engineered elastomer materials. These materials are designed with specific properties and characteristics for your unique application.
Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR)
Liquid silicone rubber is a silicone based thermoset polymer that is supplied as a liquid and cured with heat to form a permanent shape. Application is suitable for a wide range of operating temperatures and often used where traditional rubber materials are not suitable. It is easy to work with, great for bonding, resistant to a wide range of chemicals, and carries a low material weight, making it ideal for use in a variety of applications.
High Consistency Rubber (HCR)
Gulf works with a broad spectrum of polymers that can be engineered to have a wide range of properties including flexibility, durability, less weight, and resistance to heat and chemicals. They are cost effective and can be easily molded, extruded, and formed into a variety of shapes. This versatility enables our team to help you select the best material for your custom product.
Gulf’s team of engineers ensure all factories around the world meet quality standards required for ISO 9001 certifications. All products go through rigorous analysis and testing on a range of metrics, including tensile and tear strength, stress relaxation, and compound rheology. Our stringent process controls use tools such as Poka-Yoke / Error-Proofing, Statistical Process Control (SPC), Process Failure Mode Effects Analysis (PFMEA) and automated inspection tools.
Other analytical tools include Design of Experiments (DoE), Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA), Gauge R&R and 8D Problem Solving.
Custom Design Capability
Using DFMA (design for manufacture and assembly), we can help duplicate parts, improve existing parts, or develop new ones. In partnership with you, products are developed, tested, and delivered to streamline production and simplify your supply chain, often resulting in lower cost products and quicker delivery time.
