Injection-moulding of fluoroplastic materials is not easy because fluorine vapours are released during the processing of fluoroplastics. The injection-moulding parts (such as moulds) must be able to withstand this.
Virtually all thermoplastics, including PEEK and PFA, are injection-mouldable. PTFE is not injection-mouldable as standard; however, it is possible to supply a modified PTFE that is suitable for injection-moulding which is useful when you need to take advantage of the positive properties of PTFE.
Polyfluor has more than 40 years of experience with fluorinated plastics and provides various solutions to ensure that injection-moulding is possible. As a result, we have long been recognized as specialists. We supply injection-moulds in various shapes and sizes, and in the unlikely event that we do not have a certain type or size immediately available, our specialists will immediately look for a suitable, cost-effective solution that will meet your needs.
The most common thermoplastics that we supply are ABS, LCP, PA, PBT, PC-ABS, PEEK, PFA, PMMA, POM, PPS, PVDF, and TPE. Standards data regarding these materials can be found on the websites of the respective manufacturers: BASF, DSM, DuPont, Evonic Degussa, SABIC, SOLVAY, TICONA, and VICTREX.
In addition to the suitable thermoplastics, we also supply custom injection-moulded parts that have all the properties to withstand the most aggressive materials. This is often custom work since every production process is unique.
Polyfluor is happy to guide you through the process of manufacturing injection-moulded parts. We know the tricks of the trade and are happy to provide you with the service of making a prototype tool and to focus on the production of a serial tool.
Injection-moulding is a production technique that we use for a wide range of clients in various industries. As a result, customers in various sectors, such as the medical, food, and machine and equipment construction sectors rely on our expertise.
Polyfluor offers various end products for different industries. In addition to injection-moulding parts, Polyfluor also supplies membranes, bellows, shrink fibre, fibre, glass fibre, seals, fluoroplastic tubing, shrink hoses and cleanroom tubing. Our pursuit of excellence of plastics manufacturing and customer service have led us to possessing a total solution for your specific needs.
