Building our fluoropolymer process capabilities

Savillex has over 40 years of fluoropolymer experience under its belt. So, it’s not a big stretch to say that we consider ourselves the industry experts in producing fluoropolymer products that meet our customers’ needs.

However, producing these products successfully has meant that we’ve also needed to develop several proprietary manufacturing processes. These processes are what allow us to create parts to exact specifications, avoid fluoropolymer processing defects – such as bubbles, delamination and flow marks – and solve challenging problems for customers.

Don’t trust your lipid nanoparticles to anyone else

Lipid nanoparticles can be tough to transport Lipids, typically in the form of lipid nanoparticles (LNPs), are a key component of the delivery systems for messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines. This includes recently approved vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna currently being used in the fight against COVID-19. LNPs deliver COVID-19’s spike

Cost-Effective Consumable Part Production

Stratasys and Extrusion Tips CNC machined custom parts will only get you so far – especially when producing larger quantities results in higher costs. This is exactly the situation where Stratasys, a global leader in 3D printing and production systems for direct digital manufacturing, found themselves. But first, a bit

Bringing the Ultimate Bioprocess Vials to Market

Is This the Ultimate Bioprocessing Vial? Vials are used for a wide variety of functions in bioprocessing such as process sampling, aliquot storage and archiving, product stability testing, material compatibility testing and extractables testing. Savillex fluoropolymer vials, available in PFA (perfluoroalkoxy) and ETFE (ethylene tetrafluoroethylene), are an excellent choice for

Is There a Single-Use Solution for ADC Processes?

A Highly Demanding Process for ADCs What happens when an antibody is linked to a cytotoxic compound? You get an antibody-drug conjugate (ADC), which is commonly used in cancer treatments. ADCs work by coupling an anticancer drug to an antibody that specifically targets a certain antigen on the target tumor.

Fusion Welding for Fluoropolymer Assemblies

Fusion Welding with Fluoropolymers: Building Stronger Bonds Typically, the weakest parts (and most likely failure points) of any custom assembly are the welded joints. But with fusion welding, that’s not the case. Savillex has developed proprietary, non-contact fusion welding equipment and techniques that can be used to build stronger, high-purity

Custom Part Design for New Semiconductor Gas Filters

Custom Parts for Semiconductor Gas Filtration Gas filtration is a critical step in the semiconductor manufacturing process. If gasses like ammonia and boron trichloride aren’t properly filtered, contaminants can cause defects to wafers during fabrication. Porvair is one of the world’s largest players in a semiconductor gas filtration market that
