  • Various Recycled materials

Plastic Profile Extrusion | The Basic Process

In the plastics extrusion process, raw thermoplastic material (resin) is fed into the barrel of an extruder. The rotating screw pushes the resin down a heated barrel to a set temperature, and then flows through a reinforced screen to remove any contaminants.

The resin passes through a die, which gives the final product its profile or shape and is maintained through the cooling process. The extruded material is cooled as it moves to the end of the line where it is spooled or cut into final pieces, all in line.
