FLEXICON manufactures flexible fabric connections/compensators for the most challenging of applications. They are produced to be resistant to either high temperature or extreme cold, to be unaffected by either oils or chemicals, and to be resistant to abrasion or even just the weather.
They are designed to absorb movement and are lightweight and easily manageable. Composites can be made up to cope with the most difficult of working conditions, where several adverse environmental factors have to be taken into account.
FLEXICON fabrics include PVC and Polyurethane coated nylons, sound barrier mats and glasscloths coated with neoprene rubber, silicone rubber or aluminised film. For added chemical resistance Viton and Hypalon coated glasscloths are available. Data sheets and test certificates can be provided.
The majority of flexible connections/compensators are sewn in either Kevlar or ptfe/glassfibre thread and for high temperature applications, stainless steel thread is used. Flexible connections/compensators can be manufactured from materials that contain no silicone - an important criteria when used in the automotive industry.
