Extrusion is the process for converting a polymeric material into a desired shape of a fixed cross-sectional profile. The polymer is pushed through a die of the desired cross-section to create objects that range from simple to complex shapes.
The Polymers Technology Center offers extrusion capabilities to our customers on any of our three screw extruders. Dies are mounted on the extruder, the material is heated and melted, then forced through the die to create the desired shape. The material then hardens when it cools.
Combining our staff’s expertise and advanced equipment at the Polymers Technology Center allow us to efficiently extrude polymer materials to create a wide variety of high-quality products.
