Sentinel Plastics Ltd
We manufacture plastic shrouds and guards from polycarbonate, PETG, PVC, acrylic, and ABS. Our plastic shrouds and guards are all folded using hotwires or cold formed processes. We have four different sized box benders enabling us to produce plastic shrouds and guards of various sizes and complications.
We use hot wire forming techniques when the material to be formed does not allow for cold bending or when a difficult shape requires heat to be achieved. Our hot wire forming process involves passing an electric current through a conductive wire to create a low heat. The plastic to be formed is placed over the wire at the exact place where the bend is required.
Our tag presswork enables us to produce low cost, large batches with complex or simple shapes. We produce extensive templates for use in the craft industry, using materials including Pripak Polypropylene. We carry out tag presswork on materials including cork gasket, rubber and Neoprene seals, polyester and Mylar insulation, PVC Covers, and vulcanised fibre.
Here at Sentinel Plastics, we specialise in polycarbonate machining using many years of experience in the industry. We use polycarbonate machining to create a wide variety of different products to suit individual specifications. We use the thin shim tye and thicker high shock resistant polycarbonates to meet varying requirements.
