The Extent of Rubber Usage in the Transportation Industry
Tuesday, November 13, 2018

Owing to the countless unique properties that rubber has, it is one of the most important elements in the manufacturing of automobiles, airplanes, and trains. The reason why the transportation industry and car manufacturing companies rely on the use of it is that it doesn’t lose its properties when exposed to high temperatures. Another pivotal reason is that it is resistant to various chemicals. In this blog, we will shed some light on what is the extent of rubber usage in the transportation industry.

Why Use Rubber in the Transportation Industry

Rubber is extremely flexible and durable. It is because of these features that rubber is widely used in car manufacturing companies worldwide. From small seals and gaskets to tires and other matting products, rubber is the preferred choice for car manufacturers.

The following characteristics of rubber outline its importance:
  • Rubber has near-perfect abrasion-resistant properties.
  • Chemicals and grease cannot damage the rubber parts.
  • Rubber is highly resistant to gasoline and oil.
  • Extreme hot and cold temperatures do not affect the rubber parts at all.
  • The tear strength of rubber is incomparable.
  • Rubber is ozone-resistant.
The Extent of Rubber Usage in Car Manufacturing

There’s no doubt that rubber is majorly used to manufacture car tires – they have to withstand extreme temperatures and varying topographies. They need to be made with some material that provides extraordinary resistance, and rubber is the only material that provides that kind of toughness and grip to car tires. It also has fantastic anti-slip properties. That’s why the pads on car pedals are made up of rubber so that your foot doesn’t slip off the brake pedal when you need to control the speed of your car while driving.

Other than tires and pedal pads, rubber is used to make O-rings, bushings, seals, and grommets. These parts are made up of rubber so they don’t leak and make less noise and vibrations while you’re driving a vehicle.

Only the best quality of rubber can give you the desired performance of your car. Reach out to Sperry & Rice LLC today and find out what the company can do to make your automobiles even better.
