HAPPY 15TH ANNIVERSARY!
To Our Entire PTG Silicones Family.
This year, we celebrate
15 years of manufacturing the highest quality silicone parts…15 years of growth and expansion into new products and industries…15 years of developing professional and personal relationships that will last a lifetime…
Thank you for partnering with us during these first 15 YEARS. We hope you’ll join us for many more to come.
Your Success is Our Success!
We believe we can help improve the performance of your products and the lives of your customers. We utilize the unique properties of silicone rubber to enhance an application’s functional requirements. We do this by assisting with material selection and part design, automating LSR manufacturing processes, and providing customized product fulfillment strategies. Our goal is to produce high-quality parts and sub-assemblies that meet or exceed specification, delivered on-time, and competitively priced.
“Lights-Out” means full automation capability for around-the-clock operation, 365 days a year. We combine in-house engineering and the latest technologies for a lean manufacturing process that keeps quality high and your costs low.
Who we are
Brendan Cahill, President"PTG Silicones manufacturing philosophy is to mold silicone and thermoplastic with silicone over-molded components in a highly automated 'lights-out' manufacturing environment.”
Markets and Industries Served
PTG has partnered with medical device companies of all sizes, from start-ups to some of the largest multinational organizations. We work with customers to find a design and manufacturing solution that exceeds their form, fit, and functional requirements along with any regulatory compliance needs. We accomplish this using rigorous application development and IQ/OQ/PQ manufacturing validation processes.
- Application expertise includes: IV check valves, access ports, catheters, surgical instruments, flow control valves, sleep apnea masks, seals, gaskets, and septums.
PTG Silicones provides silicone rubber liquid flow control valve solutions for a variety of food packaging applications. We are FSSC 22000 certified and we utilize this standard to ensure the highest quality and consistency of the products we manufacture for our food packaging customers.
- Our valves come in many shapes, sizes and slit geometries to handle liquid viscosities from 1 Centipoise (water) to 100,000 Centipoise (sour cream). PTG Silicones has standard off-the-shelf valve solutions that will fit most common closure geometries.
PTG Silicones works with many industrial equipment manufactures and tier suppliers. We provide upfront part design guidance, material selection and manufacturability assessment. We are a ISO-9001 registered manufacturer.
- Applications include: gaskets, seals, straps, human interface devices (HIDs), keypads, check valves, flow control valves, vibration isolation mounts, wire gland seals and access panel seals.
PTG Silicones works with multiple tier 1 automotive suppliers. We provide upfront part design guidance, material selection and manufacturability assessment.
- Applications include: wire gland seals, under hood seals, oil filter anti-drain back valves, forward lighting gaskets and seals, check valves, sound abatement and vibration components, power distribution gaskets and control module gaskets.
PTG Silicones works with entrepreneurial start-up companies as well as some of the largest global consumer, infant care, personal care and adult novelty companies.
- Application expertise includes: pacifiers/teethers, baby bottle nipples, teething toys, drink cup check valves, nipple shields and breast pump components and sub-assemblies, silicone wrist bands, drink spouts, water bottle check valves, bakeware, cooking utensils, and kegel devices.
PTG Silicones works with most of the large appliance manufactures and tier suppliers. We provide upfront part design guidance, material selection and manufacturability assessment.
- Applications include: dishwasher internal seals, human interface devices (HIDs), keypads, check valves, shelving grommets, cooktop and stovetop seals, oven gaskets, clothes washer seals, filtered water seals, icemaker components and hot water heater seals.
At PTG Silicones, we feature a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that’s fully equipped for automated, world-class silicone molding. Our Six Sigma certified team is always seeking new ways to increase the value of our services. We’re environmentally conscious and practice lean manufacturing methods in order to reduce waste.
