For over 25 years, we have focused our efforts on developing advanced ePTFE products. Our main ePTFE Industrial Products manufacturing facility is located in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Another facility in the countryside of Clover, SC (shown below) focuses on Medical R&D and Production of ePTFE based Medical Device Sub-components.
ePTFE Laminates for Protective Apparel
Phillips Scientific’s in-house oil heated laminating press allows production of breathable protective apparel fabric using ePTFE membrane manufactured by Phillips Scientific.
The ePTFE membrane can be directly bonded to polyester or polypropylene spunbond non-wovens, or for more difficult to bond materials such as knitted or woven fabrics, an adhesive web can be sandwiched between the ePTFE and fabric.https://www.google.com/patents/US8609249 https://www.google.com/patents/US8784710
Phillips offers ePTFE encapsulation and prototyping services. Nitinol, Stainless Steel and densified ePTFE wire or laser cut stents and reinforcements can be encapsulated with thin ePTFE membrane and tubing to form flexible, high strength devices.
