Plasticon Composites is recognised as a leading supplier of fluoropolymer linings for a variety of applications in the pharmaceutical, chemical, semi-conductor, power generation, waste incineration, biotechnology and processing industries. Our extensive range of specialty products is characterised by outstanding chemical resistance, compatibility to both high and low temperatures, high pressure ratings and corrosion resistance.
Fluoropolymer liners such as PVDF, E-CTFE, FEP, MFA, PFA and modified PTFE (e.g. TFM) can be employed as dual laminate, sheet lining, loose lining and fixpoint lining.
Its well organised manufacturing processes mean Plasticon Composites is a reputable supplier for high purity linings for ISO containers for the semiconductor industry. These containers transport ultra pure chemicals which are used for photolithographic etching processes for silicon-based microchip or solar cell productions.
Types of liners:
Plasticon Composites has developed a new fixpoint lining system, so-called PLASTLITE by transmission welding. The principle of the basic transmission welding method is that high energy light is transmitted through the transparent fluor plastic liner. At the back, the light hits the absorbing (black) surface of the fixpoint, where the light energy is transferred into heat. In this contact area, a conventional welding process based on heat, pressure and time takes place. Based on this method, we created a modular system of different fixpoint linings, which enables us to solve individual problems per application.
This system offers the highest level of corrosion protection: a double wall lining with a ventilation and inspection room, where a spacer net guarantees free flow of the ventilation air. The ventilation system can also be used to build up a vacuum to act as an additional fixation for the inner liner.
The fixpoint lining system of Plasticon Composites has been tested at 250°C and 50 mbar of under pressure and approved to be the best system for lining heat exchangers with highly corrosive surroundings (HCl and H2SO4).
