OptiForm® FXT – The new DUST-FREE green material for plug assist with TEFLON®

OptiForm® FXT is a plug assist material wich combines the toughness of engineering thermoplastics with the low thermal conductivity of a syntactic foam.

OptiForm® FXT eliminates machining dust compare to  standard syntactic green material.

The formulation has been designed to minimize plug/sheet friction and get the best material thickness distribution for multilayer film.

OptiForm® FXT gives a very smooth finish surface.

OptiForm® materials are DUST FREE during machining, finishing, and cutting.

OptiForm FXT may be used in a wide variety of applications on sheet-fed, rotary, or in-line machines.

It may also be used with most commonly thermoformed materials but specialy for Multilayer.

OptiForm FXT is ready to replace other materials such as Hytac® FLXT or WFT and avoid dust in your workshop and CNC machine.
