Plastic extrusion is the process of manufacturing raw plastic material into a continuous profile, usually in high volume. Using heat, “virgin” (new) or recycled plastic is formed into the desired shape. Plastic extrusion is used to make items such as piping/tubing, weather stripping, deck railings, wire insulation, fencing, plastic films and sheeting, and thermoplastic coatings.
Plastic extrusion can be done with a wide variety of materials, including nylon, ABS, rigid and flexible PVC, elastomers, and more. Depending on the material used, the plastic product can be either rigid, semi-rigid or flexible, as well as have any number of interesting properties. At Dachang, we can even manufacture your profile using specialty materials, such as biodegradable plastics or glow-in the-dark ones.
