Profile Extrusion

    Thermoplastic profile extrusions are made by heating a thermoplastic resin in the barrel of an extruder and forcing it through a die that shapes it into a continuous two-dimensional profile. Extrusions can be made from a single thermoplastic, from two or three compatible thermoplastics, or with a continuous embedded reinforcement of metal or other material.
