Since 2006, Dispersed Fibre Technology (DFT™) Metflex Precision Moulding Ltd’s addition to it’s extensive range of fibre reinforced products has become the choice of many of the worlds’ leading natural gas and regulator manufacturers. DFT™ can be used as an alternative to traditional fabric reinforcement and is moulding the shape of rubber components of the future.
With improved performance, flexibility, the ability to include a sealing bead and with increased ozone resistance, the next generation of products using DFT™ is already producing outstanding results in service.
Current compounds using DFT™ technology are Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM), Acrylonitrile Butadiene (NBR) and Epichlorohydrin (ECO). Metflex have been carrying out research and development with other polymers such as Fluorocarbons (FKM), Silicone (SI) and Flourosilicone (FVMQ).
