Numerical Investigation of Curing Process in Reaction Injection Molding of Rubber for Quality Improvements

Abstract:

Article Preview

A large number of rubber products are formed into their final shape by vulcanization. In particular, curing process of rubber is the final step in manufacturing many rubber products and determines both the quality of the resulting product as well as production costs. This paper is devoted to the simulation of rubber curing process in a three-dimensional model. The effects of final temperature of mold are investigated on curing process and quality of final product. The results were compared with the experimentally measured data, which confirmed the accuracy and applicability of the method.
