We are a major manufacturer and developer of sintered porous materials, offering engineered solutions for a wide range of applications and materials.
From custom-designed solutions to manufactured OEM applications, our materials span industries as diverse as aerospace, biopharmaceutical, chromatography, medical, petro-chemical, microelectronics to product development offering design engineering support as a partner for success.
Applications include: filtration, aeration, medical, fluidisation, vacuum support, chromatography, flame arresting, flow control.
Our extensive range of polymeric and metallic materials allows us to select the fit-for-purpose option gained through understanding the customer's requirements and our in-depth knowledge of the material's properties.
Sintered materials, in either metal or plastics, offer a more controlled pore size, shape and uniformity. Due to the thermally bonded structure of sintered media, the product is generally stronger and more rigid compared with other porous filter media, therefore meaning that it is compatible with many industrial and process environments.
We have a range of core materials including Sinterflo® sintered porous metal materials and Vyon® sintered porous plastic materials.
Metallic materials include:
Sintered porous metal materials can be used in filters for arduous filtration duties, which involve high pressure, high temperatures and corrosive environments. Our materials include bronze, stainless steel, , nickel, and titanium.
Polymeric materials include:
Produced in both sintered porous polyethylene and polypropylene, materials are available in roll, sheet, cut shapes and moulded formats. The materials can also be fabricated into cylinders, cones and other three-dimensional shapes. Sintered porous plastic materials are generally chemically inactive and biologically inert, therefore with good impact resistance and rigidity. Porous plastic filters are best suited to environments that are sub 110°C (230°F).
