Rubber-to-Metal Parts

Designed to reduce vibrations and structure-born noise, rubber-to-metal plays an important role in the steering and suspension set-up of modern vehicles. Thanks to their good damping properties and excellent load carrying capabilities, Delphi rubber-to-metal components absorb unwanted vibrations and sound, providing a comfortable and quiet ride, as well as improving vehicle stability and safety.

Broad range

Today’s modern vehicles contain many different rubber-to-metal components, which is why we’re focused on the continued development of our range.

The right material

Rubber-to-metal components are subject to high dynamic stresses day-in, day-out, which is why we only ever use the highest quality materials. By carefully balancing the precise quantities of steel and rubber, our rubber-to-metal parts provide the optimum combination of strength, flexibility and noise reduction, tailored to the application they fit.

Preparation is key

To ensure a perfect bond between rubber and metal, both materials go through a rigorous cleaning process. All bonding surfaces are washed, sanded, degreased and painted. And that’s just the start.

Super strong bond

For superior mechanical properties, we chemically bond the rubber to a pre-coated metal surface. Under high temperatures and pressure, the adhesive reacts to provide a powerful bond between the rubber and metal part.

Pushed to the limit

We know our parts are strong and durable, but just to be sure, we subject them to extensive fatigue testing. We also conduct push tests to check the cohesion of the rubber to metal. As a rule, OE push out levels for bushes are 1000 Nm of pressure minimum. Ours can withstand 1800 Nm.
