Thermoforming and Manipulation of Fluoropolymers
Custom Fabrications made from PTFE, FEP, PFA & PVDF Tubing, Heat Shrink Sleeving & Sheet
Using combinations of custom manufacturing techniques in conjunction with our thermoforming processes, we are able to produce almost any item in fluoroplastics at relatively low cost.
What is thermoforming?
Over the years Adtech has perfected the art of thermoforming fluoroplastics such as FEP, PFA, Tedlar PVF and PVDF. This process enables us to offer innovative solutions to many design problems encountered within industry.
Can you offer vacuum formed fluoroplastics?
Yes, using a vacuum forming process FEP, Tedlar PVF and PVDF film can be formed into three-dimensional shapes to take advantage of the unique properties of these fluoroplastics. We normally work with flat film from 0.002" to 0.010" and the parts we've produced have been used in the following industries: chemical, medical, aerospace, pharmaceutical, off shore and electronics.
Can you manipulate fluoroplastics into complex profiles?
This is our field of expertise! We love a challenge and can flange, flare, coil, bend and cut all of our fluoroplastic tube and heat shrink products to your specific design requirements.
The custom manufacturing processes we have developed over the years, are particularly economic with small and medium volumes, compared with conventional plastics processing.
