Extrusion Compounds

At Dugdale, we manufacture both standard and bespoke extrusion compounds used in plastic profile extrusion, coextrusion and post co extrusion processes. 

The plastic extrusion process is used to create objects of a fixed cross-sectional profile such as window frames. To achieve this the plastic extrusion compound is fed from a hopper into an extruder where it is gradually melted and then forced through a die of the desired cross-section. 

Plastic profiles are able to create very complex cross-sections, even with more brittle materials, as they encounter less stresses than with some other manufacturing processes. It can also form parts with an excellent surface finish.

Dugdale have been creating PVC extrusion compounds for many years, for a wide range of industries and across a broad spectrum of applications. This experience has provided Dugdale with expert knowledge, not only in PVC extrusion compounds for standard profile extrusion but also for those used in post co extrusion and coextrusion processes where compatible PVC extrusion compounds are bonded together to make a stronger or multi-functional product.

Whether it is a PVC extrusion compound for profile extrusion, coextrusion, or post co extrusion that you are looking for, talk to the helpful Dugdale team about your requirements. We have decades of experience in this process and have standard grades to meet most plastic extrusion applications as well as the technical expertise to create bespoke extrusion compounds, if required, to meet your technical specification.
