Using the latest bonding techniques, VIP-Polymers provides complete design and manufacturing services for precision rubber products incorporating metal components.

VIP-Polymers Rubber to Metal Bonding VIP-Polymers is a market leader in providing noise and vibration solutions utilising the unique properties of elastomeric components.

Our policy of continued investment in product development and improvements in manufacturing techniques has resulted in VIP-Polymers components being used on all forms of modern transportation systems in addition to many varied industrial applications.

Our products have been used inside marine and defence vehicles, for vehicle suspension and transmission systems, underneath generator sets on-board ships, on construction equipment and even on bridges and major civil engineering projects.

Indeed VIP-Polymers products may have a use on any piece of machinery that vibrates or where a degree of flexible movement is required.

VIP-Polymers have been producing rubber to metal bonded products for over 30 years, serving a diverse range of industries including civil engineering, instrumentation, automotive and pneumatic equipment.

Typical examples of such products are:

  • Linings for Progressing Cavity Pumps (PCP’s)
  • Bonded bridge bearings
  • Automotive anti-vibration mounts
  • Lead and Aluminium roofing flues

Mindful of the environmental impact of traditional solvent based bonding agents, VIP now produce the majority of components using water based systems. All emissions from this process can be contained and process media recycled, making it more environmentally friendly.


One such example of Rubber to Metal Bonding is in the TYTON-SIT® range of seals.
