What is Profile Extrusion?

What is 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.

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
  • Stronger physical properties
