Recent Developments in Elastomer Forming Technique
In cases where the cost of conventional tooling is prohibitive, or the product is required in small quantities, elastomer forming of metal can be a most suitable technique. The development of new synthetic elastomers. such as, polyurethane, urethane and Plastiprene has extended the use of this technique.
