R&D – Research & development


Broad and deep knowledge is the basis for Plastex’ design and product solutions. 

Plastex’ success over the past decade is partly due to continuous work with development. That’s why we are constantly developing and exploring new methods, techniques and materials. Through our consistent development work, we ensure our strong market position and continued differentiation from other companies in the industry. 

Our customers also contribute to the processes. They contribute to development through their unique needs and experiences in our common processes. They also ensure that our know-how is constantly adapted to current market conditions. Our approach to research and development has made us one of the most responsive companies in the industry.

We have several test lines at our disposal and modern tools such as flow software. In addition, there is also our experience from almost 1,500 different tools. All to create a strong combination of quality, innovation and reliability. 

Bred och djup kunskap är grunden för Plastex konstruktions- och produktlösningar.

Fixation/Guiding – ensures excellent fixation between different components.

1 of 15

Screw pocket – with this function, you always get good fastening possibilities for the profile.

2 of 15

Spring function – with the right materials and thickness selection, spring functions can be achieved. Can be both rigid and softened.

3 of 15

Bracing – these can be added to give the profile better section modulus.

4 of 15

Co-extruding – this can be used to achieve other characteristics in some parts of the profile, such as higher friction.

5 of 15

Cover panel trays – perfect if you want to conceal cables by snapping shut a cover panel.

6 of 15

Sliding function – if two profiles are to run in each other in a certain position. Here, materials with a low friction coefficient are used.

7 of 15

Fastener – used to join with other details.

8 of 15

Decoration – examples of how patterns can be made in the profile’s surface.

9 of 15

Cavities – used, for instance, for saving materials, bracing and to prevent heat or cold conduction.

10 of 15

Hinges – by adding a softened material in e.g. one corner, a hinge function is achieved.

11 of 15

Snap function – good locking without the use of glue or screw joints.

12 of 15

Soft lip – often used to seal between two surfaces.

13 of 15

Embedment/Reinforcement – this can be the solution to meet demands for different characteristics in the same product. Examples of embedding include wire and steel bands.
