Nordson EFD, a Nordson company has introduced its Optimum Clear Flex Piston, a new dispensing solution to achieve more consistent results when dispensing viscous fluids. The Clear Flex Piston reduces bounce by creating a tighter seal between the piston and the fluid than other pistons in the market.

Nordson EFD's new piston is made from a pliable material that allows the inserted piston to flex under pressure, creating a tight seal between the piston and barrel. The seal stops air from passing by the piston, preventing piston separation and pulsing (or bounce) during dispensing. The piston fits tightly enough into the syringe barrel to maintain excellent barrel wall wiping throughout the dispensing cycle, reducing costly fluid waste. The clear flex material provides superior strength, exceptional clarity, and chemical compatibility with a wide variety of assembly fluids ranging from adhesive dispensing to lubrication systems. It is especially effective for highly viscous or filled materials where piston bounce is a known issue, such as greases, pastes, or solder paste.
