Manufacturing Capabilities

Our in house extrusion and mixing facilities enable us to react swiftly to customer requirements and maintain precise control over our proprietary formulations

Polymer extrusion, compounding & moulding​

36mm Kerke twin screw production extruder
30mm Baker-Perkins twin screw pilot-scale extruder
16mm Thermo Fisher twin screw lab-scale extruder
Arburg 50 tonne Allrounder injection moulder
Boy 15 tonne injection moulder

Our extrusion capabilities take the pressure off, running trials with standard polymer or your bespoke material and developing this into full production.

Using our Boy & Arburg injection moulding machines, we are able to mould test-pieces in-house, allowing for the subsequent characterisation and development of mechanical, thermal, electrical, antimicrobial etc properties. This ensures a streamlined and efficient development process for customer specific projects.

Silicone & rubber compounding​

Winkworth 50 litre production z-blade mixer
Winkworth 11 litre lab-scale Z-blade mixer
Lab 2-roll mill (x 2)

As part of our developmental process, we are able to offer detectable masterbatches for silicone and rubber, which embed metal and/or X-ray detectable properties into the end material. Such masterbatches are manufactured from a range of well refined detectable additives which have been proven to seamlessly combine with a wide range of existing base materials including NBR, SBR, natural rubber and silicone.

Whatever your materials challenge, we will provide the solution.
