Our extrusion team are experts in plastic extrusion and co-extrusion manufacturing methods. We’re uniquely equipped to push the boundaries of what’s possible and drive cost out of our customers’ parts.


Profile extrusion is a highly versatile manufacturing process that allows us to create custom plastic profiles with precise cross-sectional shapes.

The process starts by melting plastic pellets and pushing it through a die with the desired cross-section, or “profile”. The formed plastic then passes through a vacuum to help it maintain it’s shape, if necessary, is then pulled through a water bath until fully cooled. Now, the extrusion is ready to fabricate and either cut into multiple parts or wind as a single part.

A simplified illustration of the plastic extrusion and co-extrusion manufacturing process showing the extrusion, sizing, cooling, pulling, fabricating, and wind-up or cut off stages of the process.

A special technique called co-extrusion takes it to the next level by extruding two materials at once, often used to make parts that require both rigid and flexible components or two colors.

Benefits of Profile Extrusion

Complex/Custom Profiles

Our advanced extrusion technology enables us to produce intricate profiles tailored to meet our customers’ specific design requirements.

Hollow Profiles

We can create profiles with internal voids, allowing for weight reduction, improved insulation, and enhanced structural integrity.

Living Hinges

Our extrusion process facilitates the creation of flexible living hinges, which are crucial for applications requiring repeated opening and closing.

Single & Multi-durometer

We have the capability to extrude profiles with varying degrees of hardness, allowing for the integration of different functional properties within a single component.


In addition to profile extrusion, we specialize in co-extrusion, a process that involves simultaneously extruding multiple materials to create composite profiles.

Co-extrusion opens up a world of possibilities by combining different materials with distinct properties in a single profile. Each material used maintains its desired characteristic properties (such as stiffness, impermeability, or environmental-resistance), all of which would be impossible to attain with any single material.

This technique enables us to enhance functionality, improve aesthetics, and achieve unique performance characteristics.


Material Flexibility

Co-extrusion allows us to combine materials with complementary properties, such as strength, flexibility, or chemical resistance, to push the limits of functionality.

Cost and Weight Reduction

By using different materials strategically, we can reduce the overall cost and weight of the final part without compromising functionality or durability.

Design Versatility

Co-extrusion provides the flexibility to incorporate different colors, textures, or surface finishes within a single profile, enhancing the visual appeal and branding opportunities.


We offer a range of in-line processing and secondary operations to further enhance the functionality and aesthetics of our extruded profiles.

Punching and Laser Cutting

In-line punching and cutting enables us to incorporate holes, slots, and custom shapes into the extruion with a high level of uniformity and repeatability.


In-line printing enables us to apply graphics, logos, or product information directly onto the profiles, enhancing branding and visual appeal.

Cutting and Rolling

We can either cut the extruded profiles to specific lengths for easier assembly or roll them into coils for easier handling and transportation.

Slipcoats, Flock, Adhesives, and Tape

To provide additional surface characteristics, we can apply slipcoats or flock for improved lubricity, and adhesives or tapes for bonding.

This streamlined approach eliminates the need for additional processing, thus enhancing repeatability, improving quality, and reducing costs for our customers.
