Porous Media and OEM Materials

World Class Filtration Solutions

Wicking and Fluid Transfer

Sintered porous plastic Vyon® and BioVyon™ materials are ideal for wicking and fluid transfer applications. The media's uniform porosity enables the controlled release of a substance, such as chemicals, fragrance and drugs.

We also have the ability to enhance the material's properties and performance by chemical modification of the material surface.

Our strength in engineering design provides device platforms that give optimum separation, concentration or detection bespoke to your application.
