Rubber cement, also referred to as contact cement, covers a wide range of materials. Due to the variance in material and solvent used, the viscosity varies greatly, but rubber cement is normally considered to be quite viscous.
Rubber cement is a shear-thinning liquid, generally well handled by internal gear pumps. In some instances, due to the viscous nature, oversized suction ports have been required. This is especially true when pumping liquid rubber as a raw component. Typical slow run speeds, and inherent ability to handle viscous liquids, make Viking pumps well-suited for handling rubber cement in all parts of the process
Common Rubber Cement applications include Final Product Transfer and Blending with Solvents.
