Fluoropolymer components may be handled in exactly the same manner
as parts made of other materials, such as steel, brass, lead, concrete,
etc. However, inert fluoropolymers may be chosen in preference to other materials
because of better chemical resistance, friction content, dielectric
strength, toughness, weather resistance, or combination of such
properties. Most materials are affected to some extent by temperature,
moisture, and environment. Inert fluoropolymer resins exhibit zero moisture
absorption and are therefore, unaffected by almost all environmental
Custom die cutting, i.e. gaskets, liners, washers, etc. of PTFE,
silicone and other materials. Thicknesses from .001"
up to 1/16", 1/8" and thicker depending on the material.
Multiple laboratory devices including glass can be coated with different
thicknesses of a wide choice of fluoropolymer materials. Performance
properties such as adhesion, thermal or chemical resistance, as
well as appearance properties such as color or texture are all considered
in the selection of the proper coating.
Examples of Custom Orders
Wafer Carriers are used in the semiconductor
carriers can be specifically
designed to fit your particular system. Precision machining permits
exceptionally close tolerances. Carrier handles and transporters
can be customized as well.
Modifying exterior and interior capacity for use with robotics.
Customizing blades, shaft dimensions and sizing for use in various
Sampling Bags and Liners
Custom fabrication and engineered solutions to problems with bags,
liners, and various other containers which control, hold, and store
corrosives, contaminants etc., are available. Heat sealing, for
example, can be used to convert thin film into manufactured products.
Heat sealing is sometimes used in the manufacturing of two and three
dimensional configurations in order to create completed shapes such
as tank liners and lay-flat bags.
Other than solid rods or sheets, PTFE is available in shapes
such as circular discs, rectangles, triangles, and squares which
are made of solid PTFE
. Machining can be
done to any of these shapes in order to acquire a new design.
If you have a specific need, our engineering department can help.
A machined modification of a standard product can often be very
cost effective. If you require specific dimensions or capacities,
call or fax our office. Simply send us a drawing and your specifications
and we will be pleased to submit a firm price quotation. Average
delivery time is 6 to 8 weeks from receipt of order depending on
the quantity and the complexity of the item to be custom fabricated.
