      Gulf Rubber – Australia’s Automotive Rubber Manufacturers

      Gulf Rubber Australia (GRA) are the country’s leading automotive rubber supplier. From concept to delivery, we are the choice of leading motor manufacturers, supplying Daimler Benz and BMW.

      Automotive rubber components are many, there are no applications we cannot handle with our products supplied for use in brakes, steering, electric motors, aircon units and transmissions. There are further applications to insulate and protect the transfer of fluids, dampen vibration and provide protection against high temperatures. In summary, we can design and manufacture all rubber products for the automotive industry.

      The use of rubber and polymers is becoming more prevalent and sophisticated as motor manufacturers design and create more innovation in their vehicles. To supply any rubber engineering services to this market, we have to be one step ahead and that’s where we are.

      New Demands for Automotive Rubber Manufacturers

      There are three areas of advancement in rubber component parts for motor vehicles. These areas have created new demands for wiring insulation. This is very prevalent in the growing EV marketplace where non-conductive rubber is in high demand to protect essential electrical components. Noise elimination is another area where rubber is used to stop squeaks and rattles. By insulating an area of potential contact between hard surfaces, rubber gasket type interfaces are used as insurance against unwanted noise.

      Advanced certification is the last of the three areas affecting the increased use of rubber components. All reputable parts suppliers to the automotive industry work to IATF certification standards, holding ISO 9000 certification.

      Unmatched Quality Amongst Australian Automotive Rubber Manufacturing

      It’s official, there’s nobody better positioned to become your automotive rubber supplier. Quality is built into everything that we do.

      How Rubber Became Sophisticated: An Automotive Rubber Components Manufacturer’s Story

      Back in the day, rubber was a humble material with a variety of down-to-earth uses. The image was of someone cutting a slit in a tree, collecting the substance that oozed out and somehow turning it into rubber bands, seals for kitchen jars and so on. And, without going into the refining techniques, that is pretty much what happened. But then the world started using so much of this basic material that natural production couldn’t keep up.

      The world’s scientists got on the case and came up with synthetic rubber, which added a multitude of characteristics to those natural qualities and made rubber an indispensable part of the range of materials used in manufacturing.

      Perhaps the most high-profile way in which the versatility of rubber was brought to the world’s attention was in motor racing, where tyres have such an influence on speed that it has been known for the specialised automotive rubber manufacturers to be asked to use less durable types that force drivers to nurse their wheel cushions and replace them during the race.

      In industry too, rubber has to fulfil various roles, so different types are called for. As automotive rubber suppliers in Australia, we at Gulf Rubber know all the types and all their characteristics, and we use what’s appropriate for any particular application whether it’s for injection moulding in Melbourne or if you’re looking for check valve suppliers in Australia.

      Australia’s Automotive Rubber Suppliers

      The automotive industry remains key to just about every sphere of human endeavour. Whatever needs to be done in order to be made, whatever needs to be worked on to arrive at a certain place and the equipment and materials required to get there.. While the internal combustion engine may be under threat and about to be outlawed for transport purposes in many countries, the vehicles themselves will still be needed, so there will still be a need for machinery that is a collection of parts, brought together with precision, and therefore automotive rubber mouldings will be with us for many years to come.

      As leading automotive rubber suppliers in Australia, we are proud to play our part in a better industrial era where engineering excellence has tangible benefits.
