Products

Apex GB specialises in the manufacture of silicone extrusions, extruded profiles and silicone tubing. We have been supplying standard and bespoke silicone products for more than 20 years, and in that time we have established ourselves as one of the UK’s leading silicone extrusion companies. Our reputation has been built upon high quality products and a fast, friendly and flexible service which sees our customers get exactly what they need at a price they can afford.    We’re able to manufacture in almost any volume you require. This means that as well as producing extruded silicone products in their thousands, we can also produce them as one-offs or prototypes for testing. You can find out more about this service in the sections below.    Apex is focussed on delivering the very best extruded products, and we have quality systems in place that enable us to achieve the highest standards. This, together with our commitment to providing a service that is both reliable and cost-effective, has helped cement our place at the very forefront of the plastic extrusion industry.    More information about our extrusion capabilities can be found in the sections below and on our website. If you have a project that you would like to discuss with one of our customer representatives, just give us a call – contact details are provided at the top of this page.   

Silicone Extrusion

Drawing upon the experience of our manufacturing staff and the capabilities of our extrusion plant, we’re able to produce extruded profiles, tubes, sections, strip and cord in almost any quantity you require. These may be:

  • Translucent, tinted or coloured.
  • Peroxide cured or platinum cured.
  • High strength or general purpose.
  • 0.5 to 100mm in size. 

Silicone extrusions can be made to any hardness with a range of specialist fillers or additives. State-of-the-art production equipment means we can offer tolerances down to +/- 0.02mm. 


Typical turnaround on orders is less than 10 days. Find out more about our silicone extrusion capabilities by visiting Apex GB online. 


Silicone Tubing

We can also produce silicone tubes in sizes from 0.100mm to 100mm (inside diameter). These can be multi-lumen, striped, radio-opaque or ultrasound-opaque, and they can be peroxide or platinum cured. We can offer tolerances down to +/- 0.02mm and can manufacture tubes of varying hardness. There are no tooling costs involved, which makes the manufacture of silicone tubing even more economical for our customers. We impose no minimum order quantities, and we can offer a rapid turnaround which is typically less than 10 days.

Plastic Tubing

Apex can produce tubes in a range of other materials too, including PVC, PE, Nylon, TPE, Santoprene, PU and many more. In fact we have been manufacturing plastic tubes of all descriptions for more than 20 years. Tubes can be made in sizes from 0.10mm to 100mm (inside diameter), with tolerances down to +/- 0.02mm. They can be cut to specific lengths and if required may be assembled and packaged on your behalf. Again there are no tooling costs involved in the manufacture of plastic tubes, which means a lower price per unit for our customers.

Quality

At Apex GB we take great pride in the quality of our products and services - it’s what our reputation has been built upon. In recent years we have invested heavily in QA initiatives in order to make our products and services even better. The implementation of our factory-wide management system means that each order can be tracked from the initial enquiry right through to production, quality control and final delivery. Meanwhile state-of-the-art optical inspection systems help us to achieve 100% conformity.

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, usually abbreviated to ABS, is a common thermoplastic used for making light, rigid moulded products such as piping, musical instruments, automotive body parts, wheel covers, enclosures and toys. It offers good resistance and toughness, and it can be modified in such a way as to improve these characteristics still further. At Apex we have a great deal of experience producing ABS extrusions and have manufactured products for all sorts of applications using this highly versatile material. 


Plastic Extrusion

As well as manufacturing plastic tubes, Apex is able to produce complex profile shapes according to customer drawings. We can work with all the common thermoplastic polymers and are able to meet specific colour requirements. Extruded profiles can measure anywhere between 0.05mm and 50mm, with tolerances down to +/- 0.02mm. They can be cut to size, printed, assembled and packaged to your requirements. 


Low tooling costs mean economical rates for volume production. This, together with a turnaround of less than 10 days, makes Apex the preferred choice of partner for many manufacturers across the UK and beyond. 


Projects & Prototyping

Our experienced production staff are able to handle projects of all sizes and complexities. A good proportion of the products we supply are manufactured to our own specification from raw materials that are prepared by Apex. This gives us more control over production, ensures a faster turnaround and keeps manufacturing costs at a minimum. 


Over the years we have accumulated an extensive library of samples taken from every batch of extrusions we have ever made. Should none of these be suitable then we can produce prototype volumes at minimal cost so that you can conduct your own tests and trials. 


Stocked Products

Apex stocks a range of the most popular extruded products so that customers have rapid access to certain parts and components (i.e., those which have a number of applications). One of those products is our clear PVC tube, which has many uses in conveying liquids, gases or granules. This is a low taint, low odour product offering good flexibility, crystal clarity and a temperature range of -20° to +60°C. All materials are FDA/BGA compliant, making these tubes suitable for use in food grade applications. Sizes are listed on our website.
