Rubber Curing

Vulcanisation is a process of converting rubber into more stable and durable product by mixing sulphur and by using high temperature. The elasticity of rubber changes during this process. 
It is an irrversible process that eliminates the drawbacks of natural rubber like deforming under heat and brittleness. 
IR Vulcanisation equipment is fitted with high intensity IR lamps. These are used for rubber profiles, silicon hoses, cables and automotive profiles. 
Shortwave IR penetrates deeper into rubber/silicone thereby resulting in quicker vulcanisation. Infrared offers uniform heating and so temperature distribution over profile is uniform and the end product is dimensionally very stable. It quickly returns to its original shape once load/stress is removed. 
The equipment can be designed for vertical use but care needs to be taken to choose lamps that can be vertically mounted.
