Porous Media and OEM Materials

World Class Filtration Solutions

Porous Media and OEM Materials

We are a major manufacturer and developer of sintered porous materials, offering engineered solutions for a wide range of applications and materials.

From custom-designed solutions to manufactured OEM applications, our materials span industries as diverse as aerospace, biopharmaceutical, chromatography, medical, petro-chemical, microelectronics to product development offering design engineering support as a partner for success.

Applications include: filtration, aeration, medical, fluidisation, vacuum support, chromatography, flame arresting, flow control.

Our extensive range of Vyon® polymeric and Sinterflo® metallic materials allows us to select the fit-for-purpose option gained through understanding the customer's requirements and our in-depth knowledge of the material's properties.

Sintered materials, in either metal or plastics, offer a more controlled pore size, shape and uniformity. Due to the thermally bonded structure of sintered media, the product is generally stronger and more rigid compared with other porous filter media, therefore meaning that it is compatible with many industrial and process environments.

We have a range of core materials including Sinterflo® sintered porous metal materials and Vyon® sintered porous plastic materials.

Sinterflo® metallic materials include:
  • 316L
  • Hastelloy-C276
  • Hastelloy-C22
  • Hastelloy-X
  • Monel-400
  • Inconel-600
  • Nickel-200
  • 904L

Sintered porous metal materials can be used in filters for arduous filtration duties, which involve high pressure, high temperatures and corrosive environments. Our materials include bronze, stainless steel, Monel®, nickel, Hastelloy® and titanium.

Range of Vyon® Materials

Our lightweight and versatile Vyon® porous plastics are available in a variety of different thermoplastic base materials; high density polyethylene (HDPE), Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) and polypropylene (PP). These base materials exhibit a range of chemical resistance, strengths, densities and thermal properties that can be manufactured to create Vyon® products to tight specifications and requirements.

Vyon® is manufactured from virgin grade plastic polymers, polyethylene (high density and ultra-high molecular weight) and polypropylene. Proprietary sintering conditions produce porous structures composed of tortuous interconnected pathways with minimal dead-end pores. These features offer greater pore distribution, controlled flow of liquids and gases and an ability to create products ideal for filtration, separation and retention of biological and chemical materials.

From flat discs to 3D moulded structures, Vyon® is routinely manufactured into various shapes (e.g. square, round) and sizes to suit specific applications. Tightly controlled manufacturing processes ensure that materials are produced with consistent reproducible and controlled critical properties such as thickness, diameter and porosity.
