Profile Extrusion


Plastic Extrusion is a manufacturing process through which plastic is melted, shaped into a continuous profile, and cut to length. This process is used in the production of a wide variety of items, including piping, wire insulation, and plastic sheeting. Even adhesive tape and window frames include extrusion as part of their manufacturing processes. Click Plastic Extrusion for a Polymer PDF one page Extrusion hand out to better understand our capabilities. 


Advantages of Profile Extrusion: 

  • Low scrap rate
  • Less purge
  • Close tolerances
  • Consistent melt
  • Continuous process
  • Stronger physical properties
  • Less brittleness
  • High margins
  • Usage of custom color resins
  • Extrusion dies are more economical than injection molds
  • PVC replacement

Why Choose Polymer Resources?

  • Consistent Melt flow- Having a consistent melt flow enables more effective and efficient processing
  • Uniform Coloring- Using one of our custom color resins eliminates color streaking, color shifting, and manufacturing and economic inefficiencies associated with color concentrators
  • Custom Formulated Melt Flows- An exact and consistent melt flow that meets your extrusion needs.
  •  PVC Replacement- A material without the adverse effects

PRL’s resin will give you the lowest scrap rate, exeptional process control, and therefore the greatest return on you investment.
