Our Services

  • Injection, Transfer & Compression Molding

    Large or small quantities, Dacon has the capability to run your job through our new injection presses. We can use your existing tooling or create new tooling for you in our state of the art machine shop.

  • Rubber & Silicone Extrusion

    We can accommodate any size of extruded rubber products from .01 lbs/ft up to 125 lbs/ft and as large as 24” in diameter – form cured and continuous cured parts submerged in our liquid salt bath at each of our facilities.

  • Plastic Extrusion

    We offer PVC, Santoprene, TPV and many other polymers from the most rigid to the most flexible materials.

  • CNC Machining & Wire-EDM Die Making

    Dacon has added the CNC in conjunction with the wire-EDM system to facilitate in-house die and mold-making capabilities – increasing the accuracy of your profiles.

  • Calendering

    Dacon Calendering offers an extensive line of high quality USA-made rubber materials. We produce calendered sheeting in thicknesses ranging from 1/64 inch to ½ inch; and standard widths of 36, 48, and 55 inches, in untrimmed rolls.

  • Specialty Fabrication

    Precision drilling and cutting to your exact specifications.

Materials

Natural Rubber (NR)

As the name would indicate, this elastomer occurs naturally and comes from the latex of certain trees and plants. After the latex is processed, it becomes an elastomer with excellent mechanical properties. It has excellent tensile, elongation, tear resistance and resilience. It has good abrasion resistance and excellent low temperature flexibility. Without special additives, it has poor resistance to ozone, oxygen, sunlight, and heat. It has poor resistance to solvents and petroleum products. Useful temperature range is -67°F to +180°F (-55°C to +82°C).

Nitrile/Buna-N (NBR)

This is a copolymer of acrylonitrile and butadine. It has excellent physical properties, however its claim to fame is based on its resistance to water, petroleum products, and fuels. When compounded properly, it has good low temperature properties as well as good heat resistance. It does not have good ozone, oxygen, or sunlight resistance without the addition of special additives. Useful temperature range is -40°F to +275°F (-40°C to +135°C).

Neoprene/ Chloroprene (CR)

This elastomer is made by the polymerization of Chloroprene. It has excellent physical properties. It is moderately resistant to petroleum products, sunlight, ozone, and heat. It is flame resistant and will not support combustion. Useful temperature range is -40°F to +275°F (-40°C to +135°C).

Ethylene-Propylene (EPDM) (EPR)

This is a terpolymer of ethylene, propylene and diene monomer. It has outstanding resistance to oxygen, ozone, and sunlight. Its resistance to polar materials such as phosphate esters, many ketones and alcohol. It has good electrical properties, low temperature flexibility, excellent heat, water, and steam resistance. Its resistance to petroleum products is poor. Useful temperature range is 
-58°F to +300°F (-50°C to +150°C).

Chlor-Sulfonated Polythene (CSM)

Formerly known as Hypalon. It has outstanding oxygen, ozone, and weather resistance. It has excellent resistance to corrosive chemicals as well as oil and grease. It has excellent abrasion resistance and excellent tensile and elongation. Useful temperature range is -67°F to +320°F (-50°C to +160°C).

Styrene Butadiene (SBR) (GRS)

This is a copolymer of styrene and butadiene. It has similar properties to natural rubber. Its resistance to solvents and petroleum products is about the same as natural rubber. Water resistance is better. Without special additives, it is vulnerable to ozone, oxygen, and sunlight. Useful temperature range is -67°F to +180°F (-55°C to +82°C).

Silicone

Silicone is made from sand and alkyl or aryl halides. It is predominantly inorganic material. It has outstanding resistance to temperature extremes. It has excellent vibration damping, and reasonable physical properties such as tensile and elongation. Tear and abrasion resistance are generally poor. Useful temperature range is -148°F to +600°F (-100°C to +315°C).

Carboxylated Nitrile (CNBR)

This terpolymer has the excellent water, oil, and fuel resistance of conventional NBR. It has superior abrasion resistance and load bearing capabilities. It retains good physical properties over a useful temperature range of -40°F to +300°F (-40°C to +150°C).

Hydrogenated Nitrile (HNBR)

This polymer is produced by complete or partial hydrogenation of NBR. The result is a polymer with outstanding physical properties. It has good mechanical properties at elevated temperature. It has excellent resistance to many chemically aggressive technical oils. Its useful temperature range is 
-40°F to +300°F (-40°C to +150°C).
