Manufactured from the latest high-tech materials, they can protect even the most unusual surfaces and parts against the most hostile finishing processes. 38 Easy to install and remove, custom moulded masks are reusable, have excellent longevity and can mask almost any two or three dimensional part or aperture. Whilst tooling costs can appear higher when compared with other masking methods, custom masks eliminate multiple manual finishing steps, dramatically speed masking installation, reduce rework and improve productivity. With its own in-house compounding facility Greentree offers an extensive range of materials both organic and inorganic, including conductive rubber and rubber to metal bondings to solve the most demanding of application. Whether it be one-offs or a large production run we can engineer a solution to your masking problem.
