RUBBER MOULDING IN COVENTRY
SRM has over 40 years’ experience of rubber moulding in Coventry.
Coventry has a rich history of manufacturing: during the industrial revolution Coventry became one of the three main centres of watch and clock manufacturing.
By the late 19th century Coventry became a major centre of bicycle manufacture. The industry was headed up by the invention of the Rover safety bicycle by James Starley and his nephew John Kemp Starley. This was safer and more popular than the pioneering penny-farthing, and the company grew to become Rover. By the early 20th century, bicycle manufacturing had evolved into motor manufacturing, and Coventry became a major centre of the British motor industry.
Today Coventry continues to be a hive for motor manufacturing but also has a thriving building & construction sector with the likes of Orbit Group and Morgan Sindall Group calling Coventry home.
As a specialist rubber moulding company, we have an unparalleled knowledge of injection and compression rubber moulding. We are one of the leading rubber products manufacturers in the UK and have worked across a broad range of industry sectors including: construction, rail, petrochemical, manufacturing and medical, to name but a few.
All our moulds are engineered in-house by our highly skilled toolmakers on CNC machining centres; this gives our customers the peace of mind that we can manage the whole process from initial design through to distribution on time and on budget.
Rubber moulding for the construction industry
SRM is one of the biggest rubber moulding suppliers into the construction industry in the UK.
We have been producing rubber moulded parts for the construction industry for over 40 years and supply a huge range of components: from anti-vibration mounts, seals and buffers for machinery; to joystick gaiters for construction vehicles and pipe seals for drainage systems.
EPDM is the go-to material due to its extreme temperature tolerance and all-weather properties. This is ideal when used for joystick gaiters in construction vehicles, as the operating temperature in the cab can fluctuate dramatically. EPDM is able to maintain flexibility and integrity in these harsh conditions.
As one of the UK's leading manufacturers to the yellow goods sector we stock approved EPDM as standard.
Construction industry rubber moulding products supplied include:
- Anti-vibration mounts
- Hose clamps

Injection Rubber Moulding
Injection rubber moulding provides a vast range of products: from making rubber gaiters for joystick manufacture, where there is a need for high volumes but with a high level of consistency across multiple batches; oil seals where accuracy is essential; to water couplings to prevent leaks. Even buttons for breathing apparatus, where precision and durability is paramount, as lives can be at risk.
The Benefits of Injection Rubber Moulding:
- FASTER CYCLING
- INCREASED ACCURACY
- INCREASED QUALITY CONTROL
- MINIMISES RUBBER WASTE
- MORE COST-EFFECTIVE
- REAL DATA & PROCESS MONITORING
Compression Rubber Moulding
Compression rubber moulding is generally used in low-volume applications, as the tooling cost is more economical. There is less set up waste as there is no requirement to purge out the machine. This makes it ideal for niche industry replacement parts such as motorbike spares and for the vintage car market. It also allows larger, thicker products to be moulded - in excess of 20kgs in weight - and we can also produce larger sized mouldings up to 850sq mm in size.
The Benefits of Compression Rubber Moulding:
- LOW VOLUME
- REDUCED TOOL COSTS
- LESS WASTE
- MOULD IN EXCESS OF 20KG
- MOULD UP TO 850MM
- LOW LEAD TIMES
Low-Smoke, Low-Toxicity Mouldings
The two main options when it comes to low-smoke, low-toxicity compliance are:
Silicone, when the application required needs to withstand temperatures in excess of 120C; or EPDM, which is much more cost-effective than silicone but has a maximum operating temperature of 120C.
Typical industries where low-smoke, low-toxicity mouldings are required include:
- and more generally, any application which will be used in a confined space.
At SRM, we design, manufacture and supply rubber and rubber-to-metal bonded anti-vibration mountings for all types of industrial application. The primary objective is to eliminate harmful vibrations, noise and shock.
Our product range is extremely diverse, ranging from air suspensions, engine mounts, cab mounts, shock mounts and spherical bearings through to simple rubber buffers, brushes, mouldings and machine-levelling feet.
Here at SRM we’ve been producing rubber-to-plastic bonded products for over 40 years and have an extensive knowledge of the process and its applications.
Typical applications we have worked on include:
- Fire service breathing equipment
- White goods (plunger buttons)
- Control keypads
