Our track record of successful innovation sets us apart from other providers in the market place. We work closely with our clients to create designs that reduce complexity and cost while improving the quality and performance of a product.
Gulf has over 25 years of experience in working with engineered rubber and plastics. Our team includes rubber chemists, mechanical engineers and quality managers.
With a focus on research and development, Gulf employs cutting-edge technology and runs certified testing labs.
The analytical tools we use include Design of Experiments (DoE), Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA), Gauge R&R and 8D Problem Solving. We are experts in designing and building test rigs for product certification.
Gulf provides rapid prototyping of component designs. We also offer prototype tooling for testing and design validation. Prototype tooling is easier to modify, can be made with shorter lead times and is cheaper to produce than production tooling.
At Gulf, we have the expertise needed to blend raw materials and develop compounds with specific properties to suit your applications. Such properties include heat and fluid ageing resistance, UV and weather resistance, abrasion resistance, low temperature flexibility, built-in compound lubrication, and thermal and electrical insulation. Our team is experienced in designing complete sub-assemblies and production tooling.
As specialists in integrating components, we can supply you with complete sub-assemblies. This will streamline your production process and simplify your supply chain.
We’re experts at bonding rubber to a range of materials such as plastic, metal and fabric.
