Material Grades

Which Material to Choose
Industrial

Industrial grade elastomers are used throughout industry for zillions of different things. AFAC first started making bespoke rubber extrusions in the mid 1980’s. Coming from an engineering background, AFAC’s specialism is high temperature masking for manufacturers, engineers & metal finishers. AFAC is commissioned to make bespoke rubber extrusions for all sorts of niche applications from masking light to electrical insulation, vibration reduction and chemical resistance.

Retail

Food grade is the minimum standard for manufacturing elastomers for the retail market. Food grade essentially means safe. In retail there is a need to make bespoke rubber mouldings for too many things to count. The types of products extruded from elastomers in the retail space continues to increase year on year.

Medical

The top grade. Does what it says on the tin, it can be used in hospitals and labs. It’s not our bag and isn’t likely to be any time soon.

What we make Bespoke Rubber Extrusions from

AFAC’s niche is high temperature elastomers. Having discovered the properties of Silicone Rubber in the 1980s, the applications for its use have become broader and broader. Customers with differing needs have required different elastomers. As the production process is identical, these have been added to the standard options.

  • Silicone Rubber
  • EPDM

The materials we make bespoke rubber extrusions from have differing properties.

The range of materials covers such a broad range of applications that AFAC has chosen to stick with these and do them incredibly well.

Silicone Rubber

Incredibly versatile material with high temperature resistance and outstanding sealing properties. Available in a massive range of colours, Silicone rubber can be moulded and extruded with precision to supply durable quality products and components.
