Plastic profile extrusion is a process used to create objects of a fixed cross-sectional profile such as window frames. 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. The plastic profile extrusion process is able to create very complex cross-sections, even with more brittle materials, as they encounter less stresses that some other manufacturing processes. Plastic extrusion also forms parts with an excellent surface finish.

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

Whether it is PVC extrusion compound for profile extrusion, co-extrusion, or post co-extrusion, talk to the Dugdale team about your requirements as we have decades of experience in this process and have grades to meet most plastic extrusion applications.
