Engineered Materials

Our range of materials includes over 1800 compounds covering most recognised elastomer groups, along with a wide range of virgin and filled PTFE, TFM, PEEK, UHMWPE, Polypropylene and Polyamide materials.

We develop and source our materials from globally renowned manufacturers and use base compounds from 3M, Du Pont, ShinEtsu, Toshiba, Dow Corning, and Solvay.

Our engineers can assist in selecting a grade to suit the application requirements from within the following compound groups:

•        Nitrile (NBR
•        Fluorocarbon (FKM)
•        Ethylene Propylene (EPDM)
•        Hydrogenated Nitrile (HNBR)
•        Vamac (AEM)
•        Neoprene (CR)
•        Polyacrylate Acrylic (ACM)
•        Ethylene Acrylate (AEM)
•        Epichlorohydrin (ECO)
•        Silicone (VMQ)
•        Fluorosilicone (FMVQ)
•        Perfluoroelastomers (FFKM)
•        Polyurethane (PU)

We have developed a range of compounds for specific industries and their regulatory requirements.

Our portfolio of materials with widely recognised approvals allows us to design and implement our sealing solutions into applications within a number of industries, including those requiring the following approvals;

Life Sciences, Medical, Pharmaceutical and Food
ISO10993 – Approved Compounds: PP, VMQ, EPDM, TPE, TPU

Where necessary, our experienced materials engineers work in conjunction with our manufacturing facilities and materials laboratories to develop our base compounds to meet special ASTM or ISO call-out requirements, or individual customer specifications.

We are able to support development testing of these materials to ensure they meet requirements of chemical/fluid compatibility, compressive stress relaxation tests and other mechanical demands.
