Welcome to U.P.M. Kunststoffen

At U.P.M. Kunststoffen, we supply self-produced PTFE micro-powders, also known as lubricants. These are manufactured from PTFE scrap material in the form of chips and hardstock. By means of a sophisticated process, a new product is made from valuable materials that otherwise were disposed of.

About U.P.M. Kunststoffen

The production of our PTFE micro-powders consists of a dynamic and flexible approach so we can deliver products of the highest quality. With nearly 45 years of experience, we have become a reputable company in the PTFE market.

U.P.M. was founded in the early 80’s by Ed van Gilst. Since then, we have expanded our sales both domestically and internationally. In 2003, Robert, Ed van Gilst’s son, took over and oversaw significant growth. In the following years, we accomplished a boost in personnel, markets and sales. In 2020, the compounding activities of U.P.M. Kunststoffen were consolidated in a separate entity; U.P.M. Compounds. From that date on, our main focus is on the production of lubricants.
