Encapsulating Components with Fluoroplastics
provides you with a high temperature, chemically inert and non-stick coating.
FEP, PFA and PTFE are some of the most inert materials known to man, and they also have a very high temperature resistance for polymeric materials. This means that they are ideal materials for the protection of components in applications where highly corrosive or solvent conditions exist.
Using combinations of our custom manufacturing techniques in conjunction with our thermoforming processes, we are able to offer a fluoroplastic encapsulation service and we can encapsulate almost any item in FEP & PFA.
Our FEP heat shrink is widely used in the encapsulation process and we can offer closed end heat shrinkable covers, with solid or hemispherical tips. We can accurately control the thickness and the tip profile. These FEP coatings are generally used on temperature and level detection sensors and glass protection applications.
Once applied all of our FEP, PFA & PTFE coatings are fully inspected and spark tested to ensure the integrity of the seal.
