Paper Abstract

Parameters and mechanisms of cleaning rubber layer from a rubber sulfuring mould with CO2 laser are analyzed. Laser cleaning is a non-abrasion way, and it can improve mould service life. There are cleaning threshold and damage threshold in laser cleaning, and cleaning percentage of the surface increases with laser power density. The effects of laser parameters on cleaning and performance of the cleaned surfaces are studied. The results show that pulse laser can remove rubber layer completely under proper parameters when the value of laser cleaning threshold is 5~35J/cm2, and no damages are found on substrate surface, mould abrasion that is cleaned by laser decreased.
