Always smart, cost-effective solutions

Plastex gives you smart, cost-effective solutions no matter what you need: a completely unique profile, or adaptation of the length, colour or material of standard profiles.

Finishing

A common request that we receive from our customers involves refining their parts and supplying fully finished products. We can integrate punching, drilling, milling, die stamping, marking, tape, etc. directly into the production process or in a finishing phase (e.g. with welding).

Injection moulding

A complement to your profile. Most of our customers have a product composed of extruded/injection moulded materials and are seeking a supplier. Through close cooperation with companies specialising in injection moulding with ultramodern machinery, we can offer this as a complement to extrusion. Safe, secure and cost-efficient.

A smart explanation:

How can the time from design to finished product be minimised? For us a Plastex, the fact that we have experience of almost 1 500 profiles and access to a number of test lines is not the only important factor. Our overall development expertise, totalling more than 236 years, is every bit as vital. Find out more here about how smart it is to choose Plastex as your partner for development and production.

 

Profile types

U profiles

U profiles are the most common type of profile and are used in most industries for a large number of different applications.

Read more

There is a wide range of variation in terms of different materials, thicknesses and functions. They are easy to adapt to be fastened by screws, rivets, nails, tape or glue.

 

L and H profiles

L and H profiles are also common in most industries and come in a wide range of materials, weights and functions.

Read more

H profiles are very regularly used as attractive, functional joints between different materials. L profiles are commonly used as edge protection.

 

Multiple-material profiles

Few companies have as much experience of co-extrusion as Plastex. The technology of using multiple materials in the same profile solves many problems and provides interesting new design possibilities.

Read more

Co-extruded profiles can contain and combine various characteristics making it possible to include functions such as pressure seals, lip seals, friction surfacing, hinges, bellows, decorative elements and shock-absorbing functions in a single profile. Various material families can be joined together in simple and complex shapes, replace multiple components with one, save time in installation and improve performance. Here, the most important limiting factor is one’s imagination. Lengths of your choice and customised designs are a matter of course.

 

Sealing profiles

For doors, windows, hatches, etc. The most common material is TPE, which competes nowadays with EPDM and Silicone.

Read more

TPE has a temperature span from -50 to +125 °C and is a better choice from an environmental perspective as it is fully recyclable. Moreover, the profiles are available in various hardnesses and colours. Softened PVC is also used for this type of profile.

 

Window/door profiles

Profiles from Plastex are in many windows and doors. Foamed, homogeneous, co-extruded, nail and screw-fastening, with or without sealing, with or without double-sided tape, etc.

Read more

Common requirements include lightweight profiles with the right rigidity that are made of material that maintains its performance in these demanding applications with strong UV radiation and high temperatures.

 

Rail and gunwale moulding

Available in standard as well as customised profiles. From basic U profile-like gunwale profiles to large, more complicated profiles.

Read more

Made of softened PVC, which is very UV resistant. Available in various hardnesses and colours. The profile is sometimes supplemented with decorative tubing or stripping to conceal screws or rivets.

 

Cable tray profiles

Concealing and protecting cables is both attractive and serves a purpose. Besides custom cable tray profiles, we also supply a standard range of channels in various dimensions and lengths, sold at minimum volumes.

Read more

Combine with hinges, multiple compartments, lids, soft flanges, double-sided tape, nail and screw-fastenable in the right package. A sure success for your company.

 

Edge-protection profiles

The design of edge protection varies widely from robust protection for boats, piers and superstructures where the profile can weigh several kg/m to design edge protection for the furniture industry, for instance. Flexibility in the choice of materials and colours makes it easy to find a profile suitable for most applications.

Read more

Edge protection profiles are made from both rigid and soft materials. In some environments, plastic edge protection is more appropriate than other materials, give the fact that such profiles are dirt-repellent and do not absorb moisture.

 

Hoses, pipes, rod profiles

Plastex has extensive experience of 3-100 mm pipes and hoses for most applications, with material thicknesses of 0.4-15 mm.

Read more

With our expert help, you can find widely flexible solutions in construction and material selection. Some examples:

  • Profiled with integrated fastening points
  • Multiple channels in the same pipe
  • Pipes with various degrees of reinforcement for the right rigidity
  • Flexible pleated pipes customised to your application.

Lengths of your choice and customised designs are a matter of course.

 

Custom profiles, special applications

Customisation and specialisation are an important part of the Plastex business concept.

Read more

We have 40 years’ experience of plastic extrusion. Everything from flexible, electrically conducting plastics to special reinforcement and hoses that are wrapped on large bobbins. In our development division, your product can grow from a prototype to a finished product, where we take care of the entire chain: manufacturing, assembly, final inspection, packaging, etc. In the development process, we are also able to offer a free-form prototype where you can “feel” the results straight away without expensive tool investments.

 

Clip profiles

Clip profiles are steel-reinforced edge protection profiles and are primarily used to protect raw edges after plastic moulding or cut edges in sheet metal. Clip profiles are one of Plastex’s most popular standard products and are kept in stock in lengths of 50 or 100 metres in several different models.

Read more

We supply three different basic profiles, depending on material thickness, with or without sealing. Our clip profiles are available in black and can be secured very effectively without using adhesive or similar.
