Fluoropolymers / Alfa Chemistry

Tipping, Flanging & Flaring


Tipping, flanging and flaring fluoropolymers can make components according to your exact requirements and are ready for assembly, saving costs.

Flanging refers to the forming method of forming a straight wall or flange with a certain angle along the closed or unclosed curved edge by using the function of the mold on the flat or curved part of the blank. This modification is usually used to facilitate the connection of pipes to fittings and to provide mechanical stops at the end of the tubing. Various components made by tipping, flanging and flaring processing can help you assemble the equipment more conveniently.

Combined with years of rich experience in the processing of fluoropolymer materials, Alfa Chemistry Fluoropolymers is committed to providing satisfactory solutions for each customer. We know that each customer has unique needs, but our mature experience, equipment and capacity are the guarantee for us to provide high-quality services. Our professional team is ready to discuss with you the fluoropolymer solution suitable for your project and application needs.
