UHMW-PE bonds very well during vulcanization with polar rubber.
Especially with EPDM we see a very good bonding. For other types of rubber, the formulations of the rubber can be modified for good bonding.
Bonding to other substrates such as metal or glass or Carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) or Glass fibre reinforced plastic (GFRP) does not work well. To improve the bonding we have a special flame treatment for our different product types and a special laminate with EPDM which is enhancing the bonding greatly.
