Plastic extrusion

Plastic extrusion, just like aluminium extrusion, is a production process in which raw plastic materials are melted and then shaped into a continuous profile by pushing it through a die.

The extrusion materials most used are PVC, PP, LDPE, HDPE, polystyrene, polycarbonate, acrylic, nylon, polyacetate, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, elastomers...

Plastic extrusion produces all types of different items and is particularly useful for the manufacture of window frames, pipes, tubing, draft extrusion strips...

The advantages of plastic are:

  • versatile and capable of being used for products that need to meet specific technical requirements.
  • shapes can be determined oneself.
  • lightweight, which makes for lower transport consumption.
  • sustainability.
  • resistant to chemicals, water and external influences.
  • safe and hygienic for food packaging...
  • excellent thermal and electrical insulation properties.
  • relatively low production costs.
  • lower energy consumption and fewer carbon dioxide emissions during production compared to a mix of alternative materials such as glass, metal, etc.
