Chloroprene Rubber Grommets
Chloroprene Grommets, known as Neoprene Grommet, CR Grommet. Chloroprene Rubber Grommets are a kinds of accessories of the wiring equipment. They are used for wires through in the middle of holes. The purpose is to protect the wires from being cut easily by sharp plate cuttings, and at the same time, it is dustproof and waterproof. It is widely used in various fields such as electronics, electrical appliances, machinery, sports equipment, furniture, and lighting.
Chloroprene Grommet Features
Chloroprene Grommets material Chloroprene rubber (CR) is a synthetic rubber that is also known by the trade name Neoprene. CR has a good balance of properties, including good chemical stability and usefulness over a wide temperature range, high resistance to aging and ozone; low risk of glazing; better wear resistance than natural rubber (NR); higher cost than NR.
Chloroprene Grommet Design Guide
E- Chloroprene Rubber Grommet groove width should approximately match the thickness of the installation wall.
B- Neoprene Rubber Grommet groove diameter should approximately match the installation hole size.
A, C and D- CR Rubber Grommet dimensions are typically less critical depending on the application.
Chloroprene Grommet Production Process
Chloroprene Grommets designs with hole or undercuts, so it will require to add a middle plate. 2 plate mold tools consist of one parting plane and mold splits in two halves. Whereas three plate mold consist of two parting planes and mold splits in three sections as the followed picture shows:
Being a tool of increased complexity, the three-plate mould is, therefore, more time-consuming and expensive to manufacture than its two-plate cousin.
Chloroprene Grommet Application
Chloroprene Grommets are usually used to cover the rough and sharp edges of a hole in metal. Rubber grommet seals are also important parts in automotive applications. They are used to protect lines, wires and cables from chafing or grazing on rough surfaces. They can also effectively reduce vibration and are used to seal different important under-the-hood and body applications. In general, rubber grommets seals are more commonly used to protect or cover holes and to protect cables or wires from sharp corners or edges.

Chloroprene Grommet Parting Line
Chloroprene Grommets parting line & joint line location, not only depends on grommet designs & sizes, but also on grommets hardness & durometer. Grommet parting line demands affect grommet's molding price and unit price.
