Proto-Typing & Product Development in Fluoroplastics
34 years' of experience with fluoropolymers and bespoke production processes.
Our extensive experience with PTFE sealing and manipulating fluoroplastic materials means we have experienced and solved a wide variety of product and application issues that our customers have brought to us over the years. We welcome these challenges and if involved in your development projects at an early stage, cost savings can be made.
Using combinations of custom manufacturing techniques in conjunction with our thermoforming processes, we are able to produce almost any item in PTFE, FEP, PFA, & PVDF at relative low cost. The fabrication processes we use are particularly economic with small and medium volumes, compared with conventional plastics processing.
We can apply all of these techniques to the PTFE, FEP, PFA, and PVDF tubular, heat shrink and sheet products we supply, to custom manufacture a wide range of products.
We have recently worked with a customer to produce a custom FEP probe cover for their sensor probes. The criteria was that the coating had to be inert, as thin as possible along the length of the probe, with particular attention paid to the thickness of the sealed tip, to aid response times. In addition to this the internal length of the cover was critical and a flange was required on the open end, so that this could be used as a sealing face for when the probe was in situ.
Examples of bespoke components we have developed can be viewed in our gallery.
