What is an autoclave?

In rubber industry, autoclaves are used to vulcanize rubber products that are not yet stable dimensionally by elevating heat and pressure. It’s like a huge oven with extremely high temperature and pressure that makes rubber parts stabile and solid in size and shape. Industrial autoclaves are used to treat rubber products that cannot be fully finished by different molding technologies due to specific shapes or material composition.


Some autoclaves are capable of vulcanizing higher quantities of rubber items at the same time. SIC’s professional industrial autoclave’s horizontal diameter is 1500×3500 cm while its vertical diameter is 1600×1400 cm which means one cycle of production also. Items with smaller sizes can be vulcanized in higher quantity in one round. Our autoclave can operate on a max pressure of 6 bars and a maximal temperature of 165 degree Celsius.


Our high-end industrial autoclave is able to finish a range of rubber products that could not be vulcanized properly in molding machines. We cure many of our molded rubber items in an autoclave after removing them from the molding machine to make them stable and ready for application. Rubber production costs can be remarkably lowered with autoclave technology, as its molds are not expensive.

Technological advantages


Autoclaves are very often used as the key industrial process for the production of rubber pipes. Besides rubber-vulcanization, autoclaves are also applied in composite material curing processes such as carbon fiber, prepreg and further production processes that need sterilization. Our professional autoclave has great capacities to satisfy the needs of different industrial companies. It can be also rented – to support industry’s in-house production strategies.
