The research industry is known for its reliance on costly materials, including reagents and other working fluids. In an effort to minimize the quantities of liquids use, designers frequently turn to bonded plastic manifolds and plastic machined parts. Controlled Fluidics produces the precise and reliable plastic machined parts and manifolds necessary to complete scientific experiments in the most cost-effective way possible. You can find our manifolds being used for purposes including DNA sequencing, environmental test devices, diagnostic instrumentation, and food quality control-testing.
Not every plastic material is a good fit for a research project. Fortunately, Controlled Fluidics works with a wide variety of materials, including many that will meet the exacting requirements demanded of a plastic machined part or manifold destined for a research device. Below you’ll find a list of commonly used materials for research projects, all possessing a combination of chemical resistance, FDA approval, USDA certified, or USP Class VI classification. If you need help narrowing down your options, contact our engineers. They will evaluate your project’s design and can provide expert recommendations for the best material for your specific project.
- ECTFE (Halar)
- Nylon 6/6
- PES (Radel A)
