Fluidizing Sheets

Maximize performance of powder-coating systems

POREX® fluidizing sheets help provide a uniform and evenly distributed air supply stream in powder-coating systems in which powder should flow like water. With our special molding process, fluidizing sheets are developed with consistent pore sizes and airflow characteristics. 

Fluidizing sheet quality and performance is carefully checked using specially designed test devices and procedures, which ensures confidence with every use. To maximize performance, our fluidizing sheets:

  • Deliver uniform powder distribution – Powder flows like water because the sheet provides a uniform distribution of air.
  • Allow full fluidization – Engineered porous sheets maximize the efficiency of powder-coating systems.
  • Ensure consistent system performance – Special molding process establishes evenly distributed pore sizes and airflow properties.

Features

  • Consistent pore structure evenly distributes air stream
  • Strong and rigid for maximum service life and effectiveness

Materials Offered

  • Advanced porous materials (PE, PP)

Formats Available

  • Single piece sheets – multiple dimensions and thicknesses

Plastic Filter Housings

Protect vacuum equipment from corrosion and contamination

POREX® plastic filter housings are self-contained preliminary filters for both gases and fluids. Designed to protect vacuum equipment, pneumatic controls units, pumps and motors from corrosion and chemicals, our plastic filter housings are an economical pre-filtration alternative for potable water and reverse osmosis systems. 

Available in different sizes and porosities, our plastic filter housings: 

  • Ensure quality performance – Plastic filter housings are FDA, Reach and RoHs certified.
  • Available in multiple configurations with BSP and NPT thread types

Vacuum Hold-Down Sheets for Cutting Tables

Increase efficiency of vacuum-based cutting tables

To help manufacturers in the automotive, textile, and furniture industries more effectively hold upholstery, fabric, and textile roll stock flat onto vacuum-based cutting tables, we designed POREX® vacuum hold-down sheets.

With its unique technology, our vacuum hold-down sheets:

  • Increase vacuum hold-down system efficiency – Specifically designed porous surface efficiently draws air to pull textiles onto a table for computer-based cutting. 
  • Minimize vacuum loss – The consistent pore structure of the sheets ensures low back pressure.
  • Ensure durability – Material hardness withstands repeated scoring from a mechanical razor.

Features

  • Consistent pore structure evenly distributes vacuum suction
  • High hardness withstands repeated scoring from a mechanical razor
  • Strong and rigid for maximum service life and effectiveness

Materials Offered

  • Advanced porous materials (PE, PP)

Formats Available

  • Single piece sheets – multiple dimensions and thicknesses
