Sealing solutions and components at the leading edge of innovation

Technetics Group provides an unmatched combination of engineering and manufacturing expertise to solve your most difficult design and performance problems, accelerating time to market and improving cost-of-ownership from Lab to Fab. We combine five decades of experience in producing the finest quality components and assemblies with leading-edge capabilities in chamber technology, engineered surface treatments and testing.

The challenges that we take on everyday push the boundaries of technology. They are linked to increasingly difficult operating conditions, which can combine different constraints, such as high pressure and temperature, complex mechanical stresses, interactions between materials and, in relation to fluids, bacterial aggressiveness. The level of performance to be achieved is increasingly demanding. The objectives of end users are to reach extremely low leakage rates (as low as 1E-12 mbar.l/s) corresponding to the volume of a pinhead, which would take 200 to 2000 years to leak out.

maestral: science in sealingOur laboratory, maestral, offers a multi-scale scientific approach, combining tests, characterization and simulation in order to develop sealing solutions that meet present and future needs. maestral is the result of a unique partnership between CEA (French Atomic Energy Agency) and Technetics Group France since 1969. The laboratory, located in Pierrelatte, France, is characterized by a shared patent portfolio and synergy in terms of teams and resources. maestral makes the R&D support of a high-tech laboratory available to all its partners and clients.
