The PFP team prides themselves in keeping five steps ahead of anyone else in the field of polyethylene extrusion welding. PFP have a vision to setup joint venture partnerships through New Zealand, The Pacific Islands, Indonesia and Australasia, for flatpacking our products, training for fabrication on site by the local population, with employment of the local workforce, for products used by the local communities. PRODUCTS – EMPLOYMENT – GROWTH.

What PFP do

Specialists in HMWPE welding

Polymer Fabricated Products 2009 Ltd specialise in High Modulus Polyethylene (HMPE) extrusion welding. HMPE is a food grade polyethylene which has been developed, tested and used in Europe for decades.

PFP09 have, as Kiwis often do, thought outside the square taking the art of polyethylene extrusion welding on a new and innovative path. We’ve developed new products pushing the boundaries of our industry while always adhering to and achieving the highest standards for welding.

Quality + expertise = great results

Our quality control begins with ensuring our New Zealand supplier of HMPE sheet uses only 100% virgin HMPE granules for our fabrication sheets. We also only use 100% virgin HMPE granules in the extrusion of our welding rod. PFP09 do not use regrind on any part of any project.

The same high quality is then applied to our fabrication techniques. To ensure a complete bond of materials, there are three stages to polymer welding. Our tri-weld technique ensures a uniform and true weld between parent materials and weld. Our controlled weld cooling system also helps ensure a true uniform weld. Patterns are CNC machine cut for precision welding and a high quality finish.

PFP09 are the cutting edge of High Modulus Polyethylene Welding with projects to compete with traditional sheetmetal fabrication.

PFP09 use only the best quality polyethylene polymer and equipment including the highest tech European extrusion welding equipment..
