The rubber cushion is made of high-grade natural rubber, EPDM, synthetic rubber, neoprene, nitrile, and other elements that can improve its quality and performance.
One of the uses of rubber cushion is that it significantly reduces the noise and vibration of specific equipment and helps function properly. There are various types of rubber cushions available in the market, one of them is the rubber cushion used for vehicle suspension. Its goal is to prevent the suspension spring from being compressed too much when passing through potholes. This way, the life of a vehicle’s suspension is longer because the cushion catches the remaining force.
The modern rubber cushion can be traced back to the early 1800s, when vulcanized rubber was first invented. This process, which involved treating rubber with sulfur and heat, made it much more durable and resistant to weathering. It also made it possible to create various shapes and sizes from a single piece of rubber.
The first rubber cushions were used on horse-drawn carriages, where they served as shock absorbers to help protect passengers from bumps in the road. They quickly became popular in various vehicles, including cars, trucks, and trains. Today, rubber cushions are essential to many products, furniture, machinery, mechanical tools, toys, and sports equipment.
A rubber cushion is made by vulcanizing rubber, which is a process of heating and cooling the rubber to create cross-links between the polymer chains. This makes the rubber stronger and more resistant to heat and abrasion. The vulcanized rubber is then formed into a cushion shape and cured in an oven. The final step is to add a finish to the cushion, which can be done by painting, dipping, or spraying.
