MANUFACTURING AND DESIGN
Efla also offers tailored products and components for various customers globally, focusing on designs with a variety of performance features to provide the optimum solution. Quality is based on skilled labor and modern production control.
Efla Oy has been certified with the 9001 (2008) Managing System and ISO 14001 (2004) ISO Environmental System.
Thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) is a modern engineering material with excellent electrical and mechanical properties and good chemical resistance to the chemicals used at airfields. TPE also has very good resistance to weathering, its insulation withstanding UV-radiation and ozone exposure. The material is also resistant to the effects of temperature (below 135ºC).
Our experience lies in all classes of TPEs over a wide range of applications specially designed for airfield lighting solutions. Due to close cooperation with global suppliers, Efla Oy always uses the newest technology. Efla Oy has been molding Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPEs) for almost 30 years.
