Machined PTFE Parts
Development in Close Cooperation with Customers
United Flexible offers a wide range of machined parts for each unique environment and continuously develops new products in conjunction with customer’s requests.
With our Machined Parts, every product is unique and demands unique manufacturing. After 60 years in the business, we have a great deal of experience in a variety of materials such as PTFE combined with glass, carbon, bonze, steel and molybdenum. Since these products are used in demanding surroundings we work with continuous quality controls and have high demands on the performance of our own raw materials.
Our machined parts have superior chemical resistance and work in a wide variety of temperature intervals compared to other plastic products. Other distinguishing features is the very low friction combined with excellent isolating and electrical properties. Since our products and machined parts are made from PTFE they are also very easy to clean due to low adhesion ability.
Fluoroplastics such as PTFE offers a unique combination of properties. However a pure PTFE material has some limitations such as a relatively large heat expansion, limited dimension stability at load as well as low durability. These properties can be substantially improved by the mixing of inorganic, thermally stable materials, which ensure a sintering temperature of approxtimate+380 degrees Celsius. By the means of these additives the mechanical and technical properties can be adjusted to meet particular areas of use. Moreover our products are very inert and do not react with other materials. They do not degrade by ultraviolet radiation, they do not age and do not according to UL-VO, burn.
United Flexible products are well suited in applications where no other solutions would be enough. Our products are used in a wide range of environments including parts for heat exchangers, tank radar’s, insulators, high voltage switches, seat rings, cylinders and rollers for the medical equipment, aerospace and defense, food and drug processing and analytical instrumentation.
United Flexible has a long tradition as a manufacturer with our ability to design and develop in-house parts from a prospective of our unique craftsmanship with the knowledge of the material and its properties. In our manufacturing we press and sinter raw materials for further machining and shaping, for example with lithers or millers. With our own high flexibility of our machinery we have great control to produce according to specific client demands and requests. Our developing business unit can assist our client with drawings and choice of materials.
With our Technical Service, modern production equipment and a great experience in such machined parts contribute to an optimal result in each application.
