(joined o-rings) with high tolerances on dimensional accuracy and material consistency. Such products are used in a wide variety of different OEM applications where the cost of a moulded seal (especially tooling) is prohibitive.
These custom made parts are manufactured using Nufox’s in-house extrusion facilities; the compounds used achieve market leading levels of ‘compression set’. The highly developed hot vulcanisation process developed by Nufox, gives custom extruded products very high joint strength. Typically, our joint strength is 80-90% of a fully moulded product, yet gives shape, profile, flexibility and speed of turn-round!
Nufox offers extruded and vulcanised O rings (solid core and hollow core) in a range of different sizes and materials – depending on the customers’ specific specification.
Examples of size include standard BS and Metric Cross Sections as well as “made to order” customer specific Cross Sections.
Examples of materials traditionally used include NBR (Nitrile) and EPDM as well as other organic polymers.
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.
