Flexible Materials: Custom Converting and Fabrication

Customers coming to CRG are often seeking a one-of-a-kind solution. These customers are looking for that special part or component custom cut or fabricated from a variety of flexible materials, including elastomers, foams and sponges, plastics, films, foils, non-wovens, corks and felts, and more. By combining our extensive knowledge of flexible materials with advanced production technologies, CRG is able to produce custom cut and fabricated parts that will service almost any application.

What is Custom Converting and Fabrication?

Custom converting and fabrication involves using a variety of production methods and techniques to transform flexible materials into finished end-use parts. Using custom converting and fabrication, almost any shape can be formed from flexible materials. Depending upon the application, a material can be chosen that will support the application requirements. Where required, materials can be combined to produce a substrate that will fully satisfy the application demands.

With the wide range of flexible materials now on the market, materials which offer fire protection, UV resistance, conductivity, or other special characteristics, are now readily available to support specialized applications.

How Can Custom Converting and Fabrication Help You?

Custom converting and fabrication services can add value in the following situations:

  • When you need an MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) part or component. These can range from cut gaskets and seals to custom fabricated parts or components for machinery and equipment.

  • When you need a part or component for a manufactured product. CRG works with many industrial and automotive OEM’s to produce custom fabricated parts that are an essential part of their product offering.

  • When you are developing a new product that will require flexible materials and need parts development support and prototyping.
