Compression Set

The ability of a particular material to return to its former shape after some deforming load.

This is particularly important for materials which rely on the compression set to carry out a particular function. For example, a Rubber seal must have good compression set to enable it to maintain its sealing qualities and respond to mechanical movement. Also, peristaltic Tubing must return to an open state after being fully occluded by the action of the peristaltic pump rollers.

Altec have over 30 years experience in manufacturing Plastic & Rubber Extrusions, Extruded Profiles and Tubing. We're quite rightfully proud of our reputation for consistently meeting the needs of customers over that time. Because we've remained small and focussed we've also remained more attentitive, more cost effective and more responsive than larger manufacturers.
