Rubber Mouldings, Injection & Compression
Bovill & Boyd (Technical Mouldings) Ltd currently produce components containing less than a milligram of rubber to larger components with over 10 kilograms. We can handle sizes from the very tiny to over 1.2 square metres. Our manufacturing batch sizes are typically 100’s to 100,000’s and is as low as 1-off to well over 10,000,000-off per month.
Our facilities include a comprehensive range of equipment for processing materials and moulding rubber components. These include K4 internal mixer, mill room & test laboratory, injection and compression presses from 20 tonnes to 500 tonnes capacity and composite bonding of rubber to metal, plastics and fabrics. Over the last 40 years Bovill & Boyd (Technical Mouldings) Ltd have developed over 600 compound formulations and manufactured components in all the common thermoset rubbers such as SBR, Neoprene, EPDM, Natural, and Nitrile. Also in highly specialised polymers some of which are listed here.
Bovill & Boyd (Technical Mouldings) Ltd have developed a seal / rubber mouldings to be used on the Solar Orbiter that is due to fly closer to the sun than any previous craft has ever been.
Solar Orbiter was selected by ESA in September 2000 with a proposal led by the Max Planck Institute for Aeronomy and RAL Space. The mission makes use of solar electric propulsion and planetary fly-bys (Venus and Earth) to achieve a 150-day orbit with aperihelion of 40 solar radii and thus makes numerous close encounters of the Sun.
We have the expertise to adapt and supply any sector with products for a diverse range of applications using a range of commodity and engineering material grades.
We also welcome enquiries for moulding work requiring secondary, value adding operations such as assembly, printing and ultrasonic welding.

Bovill & Boyd is a premium manufacturer of technical, bespoke rubber products. Starting off as Bull Rubber in 1970 we have been in the rubber business for nearly 50 years. During that time and went from strength to strength and in 2009 we were acquired by the British Gaskets Group.
We are now are now a proud member of the 4BG Group and as a result have unparalleled access to technical expertise, knowledge and equipment. Our custom built manufacturing site is equipped with our own in house rubber compound mixing mill, testing laboratory and storage facilities.
