Heat Transfer and Vulcanization Methods

  • Philip K. Freakley


Vulcanization processes divide naturally into two main groups. The first consists of molding methods, all of which involve an integral shaping operation which is completed prior to the onset of cross-linking. The second includes a number of techniques used to cure a previously formed product. For the purposes of analysis, the shaping operations in molding can be considered to be separate from the vulcanization stage, enabling the majority of vulcanization processes to be evaluated using similar techniques.
