It’s been a very “eventful” and busy year in the world of silicone and we cannot believe where the year has gone. So we thought we’d recap on some of our main news stories of our 2022 journey.
NG 2 is now online
We started the year by launching the NG2! Learning incrementally from the NG1’s design and quality success, the NG2 processing line significantly increases our silicone sponge sheeting capacity whilst maintaining the same high standard in performance seen from the NG1 line.
Using the latest processing equipment and controls, the NG lines are capable of producing the best quality cellular silicone in the industry. Finite dimensional controls, lower density capability and improved physical properties are just some of the USP’s that sets kSil® silicone sponge sheeting apart from competitive materials.
The state of the art NG1 and NG2 lines are both situated in our manufacturing facility in Blackburn, England.
