Wefapress specialises in plastics for the paper industry. At Wefapress, we have been working closely with engineers and machine manufacturers in the paper industry for many years, which has allowed us to develop innovative expertise in the field of individual manufacturing of plastic parts for machinery and equipment used in production processes. The base material used for each of our different quality plastics is pure, ultra-high-molecular polyethylene (PE-UHMW) with no added reclaimed materials. The qualities of material we develop are refined using additives. These materials stand out thanks to their high wear resistance, low friction coefficient and surface quality.
Wefapress plastic solutions for materials and shapes
Wefapress has developed extensive expertise on plastics appropriate for use in the paper industry and used precise manufacturing techniques to make plastic parts for all machine types. We are more than happy to provide personalised advice on the individual solutions that fit your requirements. For example, we often recommend CeramX plastic, a modified PE-UHMW, for applications in this industry. CeramX combines the properties of PE-UHMW and ceramic, which include the following:
- Flexible like plastic
- Almost as wear-resistant as ceramic
- Surface quality up to Ra 0.4 μ for foils
Wefapress also offers FlexGuard plastic, which is made from a base of rubber graphite and can be used for manufacturing seals for pick up rolls. Minimal friction, excellent emergency running characteristics, long lifespan and simple handling make this material stand out. FlexGuard seal strips can be ordered in lengths of up to 12 metres. Whether you're looking for standard plastics or a custom-made part, get in touch to see how we can help. We're always happy to advise you. Our plastics are available as semi-finished products in the form of sheets, rods or individual, custom cuts, as well as precisely cut finished parts, manufactured in small quantities to fit your requirements.
