Nufox are a specialist silicone extrusions manufacturer producing bespoke profiles frequently used in highly technical markets. Silicone extrusions are compounded for resistance to temperatures from -80 to +200C and beyond, and all using only FDA approved ingredients, our silicone rubbers cover a range of colours and hardnesses, to ensure stability of final product. Detailed colour matching is available.
They offer you high quality and high performance over a diversity of sealing applications in the food, pharmaceutical and other industries where safety is paramount. We have special compounds, for example, conforming to BS6853 for door and window seals in the rail industry to comply with their strict fire-safety requirements. Whether O-ring cord, tubing or a critical seal for an aerospace application, all our silicone extrusions are subject to the same high quality standards and attention to our customers’ needs.
Upon release of the pressure the diaphragm and bead return to the deflated condition relatively quickly and without the need to resort to vacuum application. The seal may be secured mechanically in a channel or bonded with a suitable bonding agent. Inflatable seals are typically produced as loops, which can be formed around various shapes allowing for radiused corners with minimum bends determined by profile size.
The seal will not function against an angled joint. Fixing lugs may be designed in conjunction with customers’ requirements.
We treat every project with care and imagination to make sure we specify the optimum solution and the extensive range of manufacturing capabilities ensure that we can create the ultimate end product, without compromise and with quality central to all our thinking.
We can take your concept through design, sampling, to finished product in-house, with complete control throughout. We have a number of processing options, and our total in-house control of design, manufacturing and tooling ensures that we can maintain timelines and achieve your delivery expectations.
Yes, at Nufox we provide you with a product that is totally compatible to your design and functional requirements.
No, but many of our products require tooling development, processing machine set up and compound selection. So the costs involved in this process have to be allocated to the project. But if a small quantity is required for fit and function, this can be accommodated.
If the product is a new development requiring tooling, this can often be less than four weeks. However if the project is complex and requires a specially formulated compound, this can be longer. Once we have your enquiry, we are able to give you an indicative production time.
