High-Quality Rubber Products for Diverse Applications
At NES, we pride ourselves on our in-house extrusion capabilities, which form the backbone of our comprehensive product range. By treating our extrusion department as a separate supplier, we maintain a consistently high level of performance throughout the company, ensuring NES remains competitive and innovative within the industry.
A Broad Spectrum of Extruded Profiles and Materials
Our expertise spans a wide variety of profiles, crafted from numerous rubber compounds. NES specialises in colour matching and the development of flame-retardant materials, catering to the specific needs of our customers. By utilising tailor-made elastomers for our seals, we can ensure optimal performance in diverse environments, from high-pressure and vacuum conditions to extreme temperatures and corrosive chemical settings.
Serving Diverse Industries with Bespoke Solutions
Our extruded products find applications in both Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) sectors. Notably, our elastomeric seals are used in the food industry, featuring as oven door seals in the production of a leading brand of crisps! We also offer a wide range of metal detectable products, adhering to the stringent standards required by the food and beverage industries.
Our extrusion products include:
- PFA Tubing: Resistance to a variety of chemicals and a safe temperature range of -250°C to 260°C makes PFA Tubing an excellent choice for even the harshest of environments.
- EPDM Extrusions: EPDM extrusions are used extensively across multiple industries including the marine and medical fields. The rubber material is highly versatile, withstanding high and low temperatures.
- Viton™ O-Ring Cord: Available in range of cross sections, Viton™ O-Ring Cord creates reliable seals where fluids, gases, oils, and acids are used. It’s resistant to rubbing, tearing, and abrasion.
- FKM O-Ring Cord: Ideal for harsh environments, FKM O-ring Cord copes well under extreme conditions, chemical interactions, and temperature changes, making it suitable for the toughest of jobs.
- FEP Tubing / Extruded FEP: FEP is highly versatile and developed for tough conditions. This material is non-flammable and has properties such as chemical inertness, low friction and an ability to self-lubricate.
- Bespoke Rubber Extrusions: Whether you need a standard or a custom developed seal for your project, our high-quality and made-to-measure extrusions are perfect for any application you have in mind.
- Silicone Extrusions: With a temperature range of -50°C to 210°C, our silicone extrusions can be tailored and developed for your application.
- Medical Seals & Pharmaceutical Seals: Our high-quality, robust Medical and Pharmaceutical extrusions are chemically resistant, mechanically-strong, and hygienic – all of which are crucial properties for these industries.
- USP Class VI Certified: Rubber extrusions certified under USP Class VI are proven to have high levels of biocompatibility, making them ideally suited for the medical and pharmaceutical industries.
- Silicone 70 FDA O-Ring Cord: Silicone 70 FDA O-Ring Cord is incredibly convenient and great for creating O-rings from silicone in your own specifications or as a quick replacement whenever you need them.
- Nitrile O-Ring Cord: Offering excellent resistance to oil-based lubricants and greases, as well as good tear resistance, Nitrile O-ring cord is versatile and can be used for a wide range of applications.
Certifications and Compliance
Our commitment to quality is reflected in our extensive certification list, including FDA, USP VI, REACH compliance, and ADI-free materials as standard. This ensures that our customers receive the highest quality extruded products, regardless of their size or complexity.
- Extruded Cord: Customisable and Versatile
Our extruded cord serves both internal departments, such as Ncaps and VulcOrings, and external customers as a standalone product. With over 300 materials available, ranging from standard Silicone FDA to specially formulated Viton™ GF-S, we can cater to our customers’ unique requirements. We also offer tight tolerances up to ISO3302-1 E1, ensuring precision and quality across the board.
- Extruded Profiles: Meeting the Needs of Every Customer
Our capabilities encompass a variety of extruded profiles, including solid, hollow, and inflatable profiles. Collaborating closely with our customers, our engineering, production, and materials management teams develop innovative solutions that deliver the best possible results. Our materials meet FDA and USP Class VI standards, with tolerances adhering to ISO3302-1 E2.
- Extruded and Vulcanised Profiles: Exceptional Quality and Versatility
From standard VulcOrings to complex and inflatable profiles, our extrusion capabilities are vast. NES produces custom extruded and vulcanised parts using a diverse range of materials, such as FKM, NBR (Nitrile), VMQ (Silicone), and EPDM, to meet our customers’ specifications. Our hot vulcanisation process combines heat and pressure to create market-leading joint strength and compression set.
Innovative Solutions for Unique Applications
Our dedication to quality and innovation is evidenced by the diverse applications of our products. For example, when the Whitby Swing bridge malfunctioned in 2010, NES VulcOrings were instrumental in repairing the mechanism.
