Vulcanization Press

The Wickert Press WLP 1600 is designed for the vulcanization of rubber parts or silicon rubber parts in laboratories. Rubber compounds can be vulcanized or shaped at a certain temperature and pressure.


The benefits of this machine are:

- Repeated consistency of pressing force adjustment

- Homogeneous temperature distribution

- Good heating ratio

- Rapid cooling
