Tovo Gomma SpA, characterized by a solid and stable corporate structure with a family character, has been operating in the elastomers sector since 1973 and is specialized in the project and production of rubber compounds, vulcanized sheets and foam for the most varied industrial sectors, from automotive to food, from petrochemicals to construction, in Europe and in the world.

In 2021, Tovo Gomma introduced a new separated business unit dedicated to silicone polymer-based compounds, intended for subsequent processing. These compounds are produced on ad hoc mixing plants and processed with the possible addition of additives and mineral fillers.

Tovo Gomma produced black and coloured compounds based on the following elastomers: NBR, SBR, EPM / EPDM, CR, NR, IR, IIR, B / CIIR, BR, CSM and HNBR; vulcanized sheets, black and colored, produced not only with the here above mentioned elastomers but also with FKM and VMQ; foam products, based on EPDM, CR, PE and PVC, supplied in sheets, rolls and profiles (with or without self-adhesive).

The mixing plants are completely controlled by PLC, the dosages take place automatically on dedicated plants and the materials are managed to guarantee their traceability. The mixing and dosing lines of the small ingredients are duplicated and redundant, in order to ensure production continuity in all circumstances.

For the production of sheets Tovo Gomma has systems for continuous vulcanization and machines for compression moulding.

Tovo Gomma is able to supply filtered compounds in continuous strips. Each compound is checked according to a specific control plan, weighed and adequately stored in warehouse waiting to be shipped, when necessary, also in a special air-conditioned room.

The strengths that characterize Tovo Gomma are the completeness of the range of solutions available, the ability to design and fine-tune products for specific applications, production flexibility and efficiency in all process phases.
