Teflon Deburring

Teflon Machining and Nitrofreeze® Cryogenic Deburring

Teflon machining is used to produce components for the aerospace, electrical, medical, and processing industries. Filled and unfilled grades of this fluoropolymer are used in machined parts such as beads, bushings, and bearings; seals, gaskets, and O-rings; gears, guides, and fittings; and valve bodies and valve seats. Machined Teflon is also used for arc shields […]

Cryogenic Deflashing for Overmolded Electrical Connectors

Deflashing for Overmolded Connectors Nitrofreeze provides deflashing services and equipment for overmolded electrical connectors. Overmolded electrical connectors protect wires, cables, sockets and other electrically conductive components against environmental conditions such as dust, moisture, weather, and heat. Overmolding, an injection molding process, molds a polymer such as Bakelite over these electrical components. Bakelite combines high electrical […]

Deburring Machined PEEK Plastic Parts

PEEK is a high-performance plastic that can be machined into tight-tolerance parts with excellent wear and abrasion resistance. Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) comes in medical and industrial grades, both of which support CNC machining operations such as milling and drilling. Machined medical-grade PEEK is used in implants, dental healing caps, and spinal fusion, trauma fraction, and orthopedic […]

Why Medical Injection Molding Uses Cryogenic Deflashing

Medical injection molding supports the use of a wide variety of plastic and rubber materials. Examples include PEEK, polycarbonate, and LSR – just to name a few. During the injection molding process, excess material known as flash can escape the mold and mar part surfaces. The causes of flash are numerous and include parting line […]
