Custom Mixing and Molding of Elastomers
In 2012, A&A Manufacturing (now Dynatect) acquired Ro-Lab American Rubber Co. in Tracy, California and is known today as Dynatect Ro-Lab. The Ro-Lab facility occupies 65,000 square feet of manufacturing space and is capable of compounding and manufacturing a complete range of rubber and polyurethane products from standard compounds to custom designed formulas. Its in house approach to design and manufacturing enables total production control from selecting the right material and process, prototyping through production, and finally, to finishing, ensuring products of consistently high quality.
Dynatect Ro-Lab draws upon the experience of its predecessor companies to meet today’s production needs. The result is a company eminently qualified to serve the diverse molding, casting, extrusion and mandrel made needs of its many customers.
Dynatect Ro-Lab occupies a unique position in the rubber industry as a relatively new company with a long history. In operation since 1992, the new company was formed by the merging of Ro-Lab Rubber Co. Inc., a custom mixing and molding company specializing in engineered polymers since 1978, with American Rubber Co. Inc., a volume manufacturer of conveyor belting and custom hose since 1906. This partnership joins advanced research and development with manufacturing experience and processes refined for more than a century.
Ro-Lab American Rubber Co. started as a testing and consulting business to the tire industry and quickly moved into custom mixing and molding of rubber products utilizing large capacity presses. The company soon saw the need for more specialized engineered materials; hence the company expanded into hot cast thermoset polyurethanes. By joining technologies, Ro-Lab became experts in close tolerance compression molded urethanes.
The American Rubber Co. Inc. side of the business (merged with Ro-Lab in 1992) predates most companies. Soon after starting the business in San Francisco in 1906, American Rubber moved to Emeryville, Ca and was a pioneer in manufacturing fire hose that was sold all over the United States. Custom designed hose for agriculture, industry and the military became a specialty. Additionally the company developed and sold conveyor belting for the mining and aggregate business for both domestic and international markets.
