Extrusions have several advantages over other forms of plastics manufacturing. An example is the ability to create plastic forms of infinite length, in very large (or small) production volumes. Many different plastic products can be made in this manner out of a full spectrum of plastic materials, including PVC, Acrylic, ABS, and Polystyrene, just to name a few.
The plastic extrusion process is wide and varied, and can take many different forms, including:
Being the most common type of extrusion in the industry, single extrusions are by far the most common type of plastic extrusions where profiles are designed using a single thermoplastic material cut to varying lengths. Plastic Extrusion Technologies has the capability to produce a wide gamut of profiles, from the very simple to the very complex depending on the degree of secondary work required. Such as: Custom Color Matching, Co-Extrusion and Tri-Extrusions, Notching and Drilling, Plastic Gluing and Taping, Punching, Tooling, Extruding, and Heat Welding.
Our state-of-the-art plastic tubing extrusion processes allow us to hold the industry challenging tolerances and manufacture extrusions using a broad range of thermoplastic materials to meet your exact specifications and exceed your highest expectations. We are committed to the strictest quality standards, continued investments in the latest equipment, and client service that is second-to-none.
Used to create plastic layers of varying thickness in the extrusion process Coextrusion is defined as the simultaneous extrusion of multiple layers of material. This type of extrusion utilizes two or more extruders to melt and deliver a steady volumetric throughput of different viscous plastics to a single extrusion head (die), which extrudes the materials into the desired form. The thickness of each layer is determined by the relative speed and size of the individual extruders delivering the materials.
Some of the most common products created by the plastic extrusion process include:
- Flexible Tubing: Polyurethane, Santoprene, FPVC, LDPE, LLDPE
- Semi-Rigid Tubing: PP and HDPE
- Rigid Tubing: Polycarbonate, RPVC, ABS, high impact polystyrene HIPSand Acrylic
- Used in appliance industry, window industry, and even swimming pools. Our profiles can be produced in a wide array of shapes to meet your needs, and our multi-line operation allows for easy production for both small and large plastic profiles, ranging from 1/32” to 13”.
