Advantages of Plastic Profile Extrusion
Whether you have an existing product and are looking for an efficient way to meet customer demand or you have an idea for a new product that doesn’t yet exist, plastic profiles or plastic extrusion may be the solution you need to make your vision come to life. Plastic extrusion is highly versatile and customizable, making it the ideal solution for manufacturing operations of any size. At Inplex, we create custom extrusion products that always meet our client’s needs as well as comply with any and all regulatory requirements. Our experienced team of technicians use the most advanced computerized controls and the right techniques to fabricate any custom plastic extrusion you desire.
Different projects and settings call for different materials. Inplex works closely with each and every client to understand their needs and we use that knowledge to hand-select the right materials and preparation techniques. Extruded plastic is durable, flexible, and can be made in a variety of strengths to meet your unique product design needs.
Rigid and Flexible Profiles: Plastics come in a variety of hardnesses, ranging from flexible products such as polyurethane, Santoprene, and flexible vinyl to rigid products such as high impact polystyrene, butyrate, and rigid vinyl. Plastics span the entire spectrum of rigidity standards. Different engineering specifications will require different types of plastics that can be extruded to meet your specific requirements. Additionally, if different parts of the product need different levels of rigidity, such products can be created using dual hardness profiles and multiple resins.
Custom Shapes and a Variety of Colors: The plastic manufacturing process and custom plastic extrusion process allows ultimate flexibility in the shapes and designs that can be manufactured precisely. Plastics can be extruded to create designs that would be impossible with other materials, such as metal or wood. While traditional manufacturing materials can be painted afterward to meet your color requirements, plastics are available in any color you can imagine. By creating products in the color of your choice, you skip an additional step in the manufacturing processes. Additionally, since the product is colored, you and your customers will not experience any future problems with paint chipping or degrading over time.
Plastic Extrusion to Create Products Used in Everyday Life
Shoe Moulding: Shoe moulding, sometimes referred to as baseboard or shoe base, protects several inches along the bottom of a wall. This product can be manufactured using either flexible or hard plastics depending on the finished look desired by the customer. Additionally, the moulding can be customized to add designs or match the color of the wall. By designing custom moulding, you can fit tricky corners and tight spots with perfectly-sized moulding. This removes errors and makes the moulding more effective.
Lawn Edging: Landscaping edging can be tricky to buy off the shelf because it needs to be able to handle uneven ground while meeting the vision of the landscape designer. Custom moulding can be extruded in such a manner that it can adjust height or width as needed to secure plant beds, soil, or rocks.
Food Industry Extruded Food Processor Handles: Food products come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Any food that needs to be manufactured in large quantities will require custom manufacturing equipment. This equipment can be extruded from food-safe plastic to create custom, uniform shapes.
Extruded Profiles for Children’s Play Equipment: To create a sense of fun and adventure, children’s play equipment should be created in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. Plastic extrusion allows limitless exploration of play equipment created out of a material that is safer than traditional play equipment materials like metal and wood. Additionally, playground structures can be made out of recycled materials to assist with meeting environmental goals and standards.
