Did you know Mothering Sunday, sometimes known as Mother’s Day, is held on the fourth Sunday of Lent.

It is exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday, and this year Mothering Sunday falls on 11th March.

What have you bought your mum? Flowers, chocolates or something a bit more personalised.

Whether you are relaxing or you have made plans, Masterflex would like to wish every Mum, Step-Mum, Grandma and Nana a great day.

  

Silicone based high temperature ducting

Silicone Hoses and Ducting

Silicone is a very versatile product to work with, offering excellent resistance from a wide range of chemicals and extremes of temperature. Its rubbery nature makes it liquid resistant, and it has good pressure handling capabilities.

Hose manufacturers often use materials coated in silicone to create materials with multiple complementary characteristics, with silicone coated glass fibre fabric material being integral to most high temperature hoses and ducting.

Master Sil 1 and Master Sil 2

Sprung steel wire internal support, allows the hose to be very flexible, whilst the sprung steel helps prevent the hose from sagging.

Silicone coated glass fibre material gives excellent temperature resistance from -70°C up to 250°C and above. These ducting will continue working with temperatures that intermittently reach 300°C

Used across a range of applications, from air / brake ducts in car engines, railway carriage HVAC systems, steam vents on industrial washing machines, chemical solvent and toxic fume venting, anywhere where temperature, both hot or cold, can be an issue, where dust and toxic fumes need to be handled.

Available in 4m lengths

Master Clip Silicone

Silicone coated glass fibre material gives excellent solvent, chemical and temperature resistance from -60°C up to 300°C and intermittently up to 350°C

External galvanised steel wire external support helps protects the hose from scuff damage, for example dragging on the floor, or against a wall.

The external helix and soft fabric hose material makes this hose extremely flexible, allowing it to collapse lengthwise by up to 3 to 4 times.

Available in custom lengths up to 25m

Pancakes all day!

Pancakes all day!

Get your pans ready for Tuesday 13th February.

Pancake Day has been celebrated by Britons for centuries.  Known also as Shrove Tuesday, its exact date, rather confusingly, changes every year, because it is determined by when Easter falls. But it is always the day preceding Ash Wednesday (the first day of Lent), and always falls in February or March. Pancakes are associated with the day preceding Lent because they were a way to use up rich foods such as eggs, milk, and sugar, before the fasting season of the 40 days of Lent.

The most famous pancake race, at Olney in Buckinghamshire, has been held since 1445. The contestants, traditionally women, carry a frying pan and race over a 415-yard course to the finishing line. The rules are strict: contestants have to toss their pancake at both the start and the finish, as well as wear an apron and a scarf. Traditionally, when men want to participate, they must dress up as a housewife (usually an apron and a bandanna). The race is followed by a church service.

How to make the perfect pancakes.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy

Do you have a favourite topping or maybe take turns on flipping the mixture?

Here at Masterflex, jam, sugar, lemon juice or maple syrup are some of the more popular choices to have with pancakes.

Munich – 60 years on – remembering the “Busby Babes”

images

On 6th February 1958, the aircraft carrying the Manchester United football team, its staff, journalists and supporters crashed, killing 23 of the 44 passengers.

United had just beaten Red Star Belgrade and where on their way home from Belgrade when they stopped at Munich Riem Airport for re-fueling.  With a blizzard blowing and vision poor, the aircraft attempted to take off 3 times, but a layer of slush prevented the aircraft from taking off and it crashed into a fence and hit a house.  Twenty passengers died on board, and three died later in hospital. Forever remembering the Busby Babes 60 years on.

He has worked at Masterflex for 10 years.

On a daily basis you can hear Karl singing to the radio, whilst setting the equipment up ready for the hoses to be made.

He enjoyed an eventful night out in Manchester with his friends over the weekend but is now hard at work making the hoses.

Give Masterflex a call, place an order and Karl maybe the one who manufactures your product.
