Extrusion / extrusion of plastic profiles
We at Plastex produce high-quality plastic profiles using the extrusion method. We have a large production capacity and are a competent and reliable partner. Our know-how includes all stages such as preliminary study, specification of requirements, material selection, construction and design proposals.
Extrusion in plastics
All of our extrusion profiles are produced in thermoplastic, as it is a material that can be recycled almost infinitely many times. We work in several thermoplastics and can produce plastic profiles in widths up to 600 mm and pipes up to Ø100 mm.
The co-extrusion method allows us to combine different plastic materials with different properties in a single product. This gives us the opportunity to offer a plastic profile with improved function and appearance.
The extrusion process
With the extrusion process, it is possible to very cost-effectively produce plastic profiles in different lengths, with integration of functions and good precision.
The extrusion process begins with plastic granules being melted down. The heated plastic mass is then pressed or drawn through a tool/die forming a continuous length of the desired shape. The extruded plastic profile is then cut to the desired length. The end product can be: pipes, hoses, cable ducts, window profiles or seals. The high efficiency of the production makes the process interesting for larger series production but is also effective for smaller volumes.
Questions and answers
What does extrusion mean?
Extrusion (extrusion or extrusion) is a technique for manufacturing e.g. plastic profiles, pipes and hoses in various types of thermoplastics. Objects that have been extruded are cut to desired lengths and always have the same cross-sectional area along the entire length. Extrusion can be used to manufacture e.g. pipes, hoses, cable ducts, window profiles or seals.
How does extrusion work?
Extrusion (extrusion or extrusion) is a continuous process unlike injection molding where the plastic is pushed into a molding tool one shot at a time. The extrusion process begins with plastic granules, melted down and the heated plastic mass pressed or pulled through a tool/die forming a continuous length of this mold which is cut to the desired length.
What are the advantages of extrusion?
With extrusion (extrusion, extrusion) can produce different types of plastic profiles in completely optional lengths. The extrusion technology is cost-effective and provides opportunities for the integration of functions and fine fits. Extrusion is also used to recycle plastic material where the plastic material is melted down and then cut into granules to be used again. During extrusion, the final product becomes durable and long-lasting.
