Save Time and Money with Co-Extrusion

Co-extrusion is a versatile manufacturing method, allowing you to create plastic profiles with multiple characteristics. During this process, two materials are forced through a single die, merging or welding them into a single structure. Businesses typically use this process if they’re trying to create a part with multiple characteristics — flexible and solid portions, for example. At Custom Profile, we’re well-versed in the intricacies of the process, and can help you achieve the right part for your application. Learn about our experience and the benefits of co-extrusion below, or reach out to our team with questions.

Advantages of Co-Extrusion

Reduce Turnaround Times

Co-extrusion reduces the number of steps compared to the traditional extrusion method. You’ll experience quicker turnaround times when you opt for this process.

Cost Savings

Reducing the amount of labor time also dramatically diminishes costs associated with extrusion. Additionally, you might be able to choose more cost-effective materials, further reducing your costs.

Material Maintains Desired Properties

Co-extrusion allows you to combine different materials together to create the perfect part for your application. You can combine flexible and rigid materials or mix colors and glosses to fit your specifications.
