Testimonial - Fluoropolymer Tube
Tell me about
We were approached by a client to create a rectangular profile component using a fluoropolymer.
This role will really give you the opportunity to "own" the tasks delegated to you, to process from start to finish and allow you to develop skills and experience in all aspects of a busy accounts department.
Day to day tasks could consist of:
Monday to Thursday 8:30am to 5:00pm Friday 8:30am to 2:00pm
Total hours per week: 37.50
Additional benefits include:
A clean and safe environment is essential for a healthy quality of life for the whole population. With so many factors affecting the world in which we live in, it’s vital that we frequently monitor and test the elements (such as water, gas, soil, pollutants, waste) that contribute to an unclean, polluted and potentially toxic air environment.
Day-to-day, these elements produce VOCs, or Volatile Organic Compounds, into the air, which impact both our bodies and the environment. Health-wise, VOCs can cause skin irritation, respiratory issues, headaches and fatigue. Environmentally, VOCs cause pollutants, the production of ozone and damage to materials and buildings.
Fluoroplastics are massively useful in a food and drink production context, and at Adtech, we have years of experience behind us in supplying fluoroplastics to the food and drink manufacturing industry. Over time, we have worked hard to produce the best polymers that, when used in this industry, will ensure the safest, most effective workspace for your food and drink production needs.
In the UK, the food and drink industry is by far the biggest manufacturing sector. Contributing over £30bn to the economy and employing roughly one quarter of the UK’s total workforce, the importance of the food and drink manufacturing sector cannot be underestimated.
High performance fluoroplastic heat-shrink tubing and sleeving is crucial for food and drink manufacturing applications, due to their unique properties which set them apart from general purpose plastics such as PVC. In all manufacturing scenarios, but most importantly in the food and drink sector, it’s vital that workers are kept safe, and that products and produce remain uncontaminated. Here at Adtech, we manufacture all our fluoroplastic instruments specifically with this in mind.
The oil and gas industry benefits our lives in many ways, supplying energy, heating homes, and fuelling transport. It is also vital to the production of most everyday essentials - from medical supplies to household appliances. Without the oil and gas industry, the production of our fluoroplastics wouldn’t be possible.
Yet in the oil and gas industry, the combination of powerful equipment, chemicals and processes creates an extremely hazardous environment – danger is almost always present. These harsh environments require rigorous safety measures and a range of materials that can withstand extremely high working temperatures, brine solutions, chemicals and oil residue. Fortunately, Adtech’s fluoroplastic materials do just that.
We're currently looking for talented, motivated, capable individuals to join our production team:

We are working with reduced team today due to the snow conditions at Aston Down, so enquiries and orders may take slightly longer to process, so please bare with us.
Today, virtually every industry will use fluidics to accomplish various tasks. Fluidics is the technology of using liquid and gases to operate a control system. It can be broken down into 2 types: Hydraulics and Pneumatics.
Hydraulics is the technology of using pressurized liquid to transmit force and energy. Pneumatics is the technology of using pressurized gases to transmit force and energy.
Here at Adtech, we supply a wide range of fluoropolymers to partners working in this market.
Are you utilising fluidics?
Though most of us do not realise, we are surrounded by systems that use hydraulics and pneumatics on a daily basis.
Hydraulics, for example, are used to power lifts, and heavy machinery such as cranes and forklifts. If you drive a car, your vehicle’s braking system will be powered by hydraulics. Pressing your foot down on the brake exerts pressure on the brake fluid, emitting a force onto the brake pads and discs, causing the car to slow down. Hydraulic systems can even be found in amusement parks. Ferris Wheels, for example, rely on hydraulics to keep the ride in motion.
Pneumatic systems can similarly be found surrounding us every day. Exercise machines, bicycle pumps, vacuum cleaners, and even a dentist’s drill rely on pneumatics to power them.
In an increasingly regulated and safety-conscious market, UVC sterilisation equipment is becoming more and more important. Here at Adtech, we offer a wide range of FEP products that are suitable for use in UVC sterilisation equipment.
Which industries require UVC sterilisation?
The threat of contamination means that UVC sterilisation equipment is vital in the food, drink and medical industries. UVC is the name given to a strong type of ultraviolet light that is used for disinfecting and destroying harmful microorganisms in liquids, food products, surfaces and in the air.
In the food and drink industry this is a necessary practice, as it eliminates pathogens and can extend the shelf life of products. UVC sterilisation, in particular, is widely used to disinfect drinking water, sanitize wastewater and sterilise food contact surfaces.
In the medical sector, UV radiation is used to sterilise hospital equipment, diagnose a range of medical conditions and even treat cancer patients. According to the FDA, UVC is the most effective radiation type for inactivating bacteria and viruses. With UVC technology, it’s possible to destroy 99.9% of bacteria in seconds, without the need for harmful chemicals.
FEP and UVC
The high strength of UVC rays means that most polymers are unsuitable when used alongside them. Here at Adtech, however, we have tried and tested a range of polymers over the years in an attempt to find the most suitable.
