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 […]


Non-Metallic & Plastic Material Selection Criteria

Much more than simply picking texture or color, plastic material selection criteria can greatly affect performance, safety, and durability. In order to make the right choice for your application, it’s important to know a material’s unique characteristics and how they will affect your specific project. To effectively answer these questions, you’ll need to be familiar […]
