If you have an application requiring Plastic components please contact us to discuss the best quality engineered industrial plastics to fulfil your requirements.
Here at WKH we now have a designated area for compatibility testing of certain materials, mostly clear Polycarbonates and Acrylics ( including ATEX complying PC 350 / AC300 & Lead Acrylic H8 to H70 Radiation resisting / shielding ) with Bonding and cleaning products.
This is useful for customers who need to be confident about the care of their product when regular cleaning is required i.e Cast Acrylic isolators for the clean air Industry & screens or visors where optical clarity is crucial.
Image above showing the testing of Lead Acrylics with various cleaning agents, The results showed no reaction to any of the cleaning products.
For further details and to arrange specific materials testing please Contact us
REMEMBER we have good lead times on all machining of industrial plastics, conventional turning and milling and CNC machining.
Please contact us with your requirements.
WKH GROUP Are always looking for new products / technology and techniques to help our customers achieve the best possible results for their engineering requirements.
IE . Polyethylene HD 500 grade Seal housings can now be produced at over 150 mm long by 1250 mm diameter this is due to the item being machined in layers and bonding together backed by a welding procedure . This means holes / grooves / channels / pockets / inlets can be introduced where before it was not possible .
All require spares ( chain guide plastics ) and here at WKH Group we make them to order.
From perforated screen panels to chain guides / screen seals & packing links / shims, Materials used are UHMWPE / HDPE / PE500 / POLYETHYLENE / Nylons & Kepital F10-01 -WRAS ( water regulations advisory scheme ) approved.
A quick response to enquiries , good lead times and quality engineering of plastics make WKH Group hard to beat when it comes to service.
