Co-extruded plastic profiles combine and bond two or more different plastic materials into a one-piece product. Co-extruded plastic technology uses two or more extruders and one profile die. The combined materials can be rigid and flexible, different colors, and different additive mixes. The co-extruded plastics can either be joined together or layered, but they must be compatible for strong bonding.

Co-extrusion offers almost endless possibilities in plastic manufacturing. One-piece plastic parts can be articulated, expensive plastic additives used only in the critical areas, two or more different colors to communicate and enhance. Sometimes it is the only way to satisfy a product design's requirements.Contact Us
