Your Leading Rubber Bushing Manufacturer – Lindas
Rubber bushings are also called rubber bushes. They are shaped like cylinders. Also, they are covered with an outer and inner metal. Metals can be made from aluminum, stainless, mild steel, etc. Bonded and vulcanized rubber will be placed between the layers.
Lindas manufactures a wide range of high-quality and long-lasting rubber bushings. These bushings are available in different profiles and colors. They are also available in 70 shore A, 60 shore A, 50 shore A, and other hardness ratings.

Neoprene bushings can be used for equipment compensators and vibration mounts. They are suitable for both outdoor and indoor.
EPDM bushings can withstand extremes weather conditions, acids, and temperatures. They are commonly used for construction and automotive projects.
Silicone bushings have excellent flexibility and temperature resistance. They can reduce noise and vibrations. Also, they can stabilize joints.
Nitrile or NBR bushings are commonly used in automotive suspension systems. They are resistant to heat, oil, and wear.
SBR bushings have good tensile strength, crack resistance, and wear resistance. They can be used for various industrial applications.
FKM bushings have enhanced durability and flexibility. They also have good stability in high-speed applications.
Lindas Rubber Bushing Advantages
We manufacture rubber bushes with a lot of advantages including:
To ensure the bushings have excellent performance in their specific application, we can customize them to your required shapes, sizes, designs, and other configurations.
No Lubrication Necessary
Using rubber bushes eliminates the necessity for lubricating the gap between the 2 components.
Using rubber bushes for equipment, vehicles, and other products gives them a long service life. They can also lower your maintenance costs since they are maintenance-free.
The bushings have excellent resistance to abrasion, extreme weather, temperatures, etc.
Services We Offer
To make sure we suit your project or application needs, we offer services such as:
If you need rubber bushes that have a personalized touch, we can hand-cut rubber materials from stock.
We can cut rubber materials into specific sizes and shapes through water jet cutting. They can be cut from the roll or sheet stock.
Our on-demand cutters can be customized. They are equipped with stop-&-go technology. Due to that, we are capable of doing 800 cuts every minute or more.
This process works by inserting a mandrel into the extruded tube. After that, we cut the final size using a knife.
Production Processes of Rubber Bushes
There are a lot of processes to produce rubber bushes. Some of the processes include:
This process starts by pressing the raw rubber through a die. After extruding, it will be vulcanized.
Vulcanization provides the bushings resistance to tear, wear, and oxidation. It can also provide them with low water absorption and good tensile strength. This process involves 3 stages:
Rubber Bushing Types
Conical or cone bushings are commonly used in marine and automotive applications. They are excellent for shearing and compression loads. Their features include:
- resistant to grease and oil
- high load capacity
- excellent resistance to extremely high temperatures
These types of bushings are used for avoiding metal-on-metal collision, and that can lead to wearing. They can keep the vehicle’s control arm from resting against the frame. These bushings also serve as:
- dampen vibrations
- noise suppressors
Cylindrical bushings are typically made from natural rubber and stainless steel. They are also referred to as rubber bobbins. These bushings are utilized in passive and active vibration applications. Additionally, they are perfect to use for noise and vibration reduction in:
- electronics & aerospace industries
- HVAC systems
- motors & fans
These bushings are designed with multiple layers of rubber.
Adding more layers leads to a more solid and heavy-duty structure.
The layers also served as protection against ripping and distorting of the bushings.
Since they have a solid structure, the heavy-duty rubber bushings offer:
- high-level performance
- excellent protection
Leaf spring bushes or bushings can be in all rubber or encased with steel. They are used for cushioning automotive springs.
These bushings absorb shock on the car’s frame and support the leaf spring ends.
Additionally, they help in leaf spring end articulation.
These bushings are used for connecting plastic, copper, iron, or steel piping in gravity flow or non-pressure applications. They are typically available in sizes ranging from 1.5″ up to 4″. Their features include:
- easy installation
- provides a tight and perfect seal
Sleeve bushings are used for protecting components from shock, corrosion, and vibrations. They serve as an insulating liners, bumpers, and rubber dampers. There are several types of sleeve bushings such as:
- bearing sleeve
- shaft sleeve
- sway bar sheath
- suspension system sleeve
Variety of Functions
Any mechanism that uses vibrations may lead to two objects colliding and repeated hitting. And that results in breakdown or extreme damage.
Therefore, the bushings act as a stabilizer and cushion. They can eliminate or reduce vibrations between objects or surfaces.
Bushings can absorb shocks. That is why they are commonly used in vehicles, suspension systems, and other impact-related applications. They can prevent the damage caused by shocks.
The bushings are capable of preventing surfaces from moving in a conical or torsional manner. They lessen the energy generated by moving parts.
Enhanced Comfort & Safety
Bushings can align and position steering and suspension components. That helps in enhancing safety when driving.
Appropriate for All Mechanical Equipment & Vehicles
The rubber bushings are suitable for:
- production machinery
- complex devices
The bushings also act as:
- captive cab mounting
- mechanical joint in rail & road vehicle suspension systems
- gearbox mounting
- engine mounting
- pivot arms
They can protect machinery and equipment from wear.
Wide Range of Applications
Bushings can be used for sealing in:
The rubber bushes are used in automotive applications, especially in:
- Suspension systems
- Gear sticks
- Combustion engine
- Anti-roll bars
They can reduce vibrations in vehicles. Also, they can protect the vehicle’s:
- wire lines
Their function also includes controlling the automobile and ensuring a safe ride.
In this industry, they are used for drilling and highway equipment.
Bikes & Skateboards
The bushings are used in bikes and skateboards to help the boards turn or tilt. They are commonly attached to the board’s axle. And that allows a smooth rotation. There are 3 types of bushings that are commonly found on skateboards which include:
- Cone barrel
- Double barrel
When a pipe goes through a tank’s wall, bushings are utilized to seal the connection. To suit the tank’s requirements, they can be customized to any size and shape.
Blowers and fans utilize bushings to reduce vibration. They do that by handling vertical loads in compression and shear form. To match various fan designs, the bushings are available in a variety of sizes and shapes.
Other applications of rubber bushes are:
- Consumer appliances
