If you work in the flexible rubber molding industry, you know how versatile rubber is and you are familiar with its wide variety of uses. However, you’re probably also aware that the high temperatures and abrasive compounds used in the rubber molding process can wreak havoc on your molding tools and cause imperfections on the finished product.
The molded rubber product's resulting burn marks, flow marks, and porosity often leads to scrap parts, which in turn can decrease productivity and cause frustration among your molding operators.
At Stoner Molding Solutions, we understand that these challenges can be costly to your company’s bottom line and downright exasperating for your staff. With more than 80 years of experience in the rubber release field, Stoner Molding Solutions provides products to address the challenges in the rubber molding process while reducing production costs and protecting the life of your molds, leading to improved productivity.

The flexibility of rubber makes it the perfect material for a wide range of products, from tires and sporting goods to office equipment, footwear, and household appliances. In fact, uncured rubber compounds are so flexible they can be molded into nearly any shape, making them the perfect choice for many applications.
However, rubber’s versatility also presents many molding challenges. The compounds used in the rubber molding process vary widely in chemical makeup, resulting in many abrasive or aggressive compounds that can damage mold surfaces, drastically shortening tool life.
Stoner Molding Solutions offers a wide range of cost-effective solutions for natural and synthetic rubber molding. Our breadth of products includes water- and solvent-based release agents that provide either semi-permanent or sacrificial coatings for rubber compression molding, injection molding, or transfer molding.
When you evenly apply a high-quality mold release agent, like the ones manufactured by Stoner Molding Solutions, you can protect your molding tools from the scorching of the rubber compound. After vulcanization, you should quickly remove the molded parts from the mold to prevent surface imperfections.
To produce a high volume of custom rubber products, the mold cavity must be free of grease, oils, polymers, and other contaminants before putting the mold into service. That’s why you one of our highly versatile and effective mold cleaners. They remove the build-up that leads to part discoloration and poor mold performance.
If your company uses a transfer, compression, or injection molding process, you must protect your molds between uses to maximize production. Leaving your tools unprotected—from any time between overnight or a year or more—leads to rust, oxidation, and corrosion. Protect your rubber tooling with rust preventatives from Stoner Molding Solutions.
Your flexible rubber molding process is easier when using the suitable penetrating lubricant on your metal compression molds. Using one of our mold release lubricants can prevent natural rubber parts from sticking to the mold—making your custom molded rubber process easier and more efficient than it would be without it.
