Nylon vs. Teflon Washers

Most washers can be made of either nylon or Teflon. These versatile polymers offer greater mechanical strength and higher resistance to friction than traditional materials such as aluminum, steel, and bronze, making them a more durable and cost-effective solution in most industrial applications. Despite their similarities, however, nylon and Teflon each have distinct properties that […]


Everything Under One Roof

In today’s manufacturing world, few companies have the capabilities and resources to handle turnkey jobs, all under one roof. Many aspects of jobs are outsourced to 3rd party contractors, and the personalized touch, first hand control, and cost savings opportunities of a project can be lost. At New Process Fibre, we have been a leader […]

What is the Difference Between “Fibre” and “Fiber”?

At New Process Fibre, one of the questions we hear most often has nothing to do with the products we manufacture or the processes we use to do so. Rather, it has to do with a word — what is the difference between “fibre” and “fiber,” such as in “fibre washers” and “fiber washers“? The […]


Acetal: Tougher Than You Think

Truly versatile, high-performance materials, acetal homopolymer and copolymer resins can be used in a wide range of applications. Although many compounds have an acetal function group, polyoxymethylene is most commonly referred to as “acetal.” A homopolymer, which means the same molecular unit repeats throughout the polymer chain, polyoxymethylene specifically features a very high melting point […]


Understanding Sheet and Coil Extrusion

What is Extrusion? Extrusion is a manufacturing process in which raw materials are pressed through a cross-sectional die to form one continuous profile. This process allows for the creation of highly complex cross sections from brittle materials. Extrusion is used to produce items such as tubing, fencing, seals, railings, sheets, and window frames. When extruding […]
