With the co-extrusion process, Profile Xtrusions is able to construct a part with two dissimilar materials, while still maintaining the physical properties of each. This extrusion process works effectively through the combination a rigid material, for strength, and a soft or flexible material, for function, into various uniform profiles. For example, when a rubber gasket must be attached to a metal part to provide a closure seal, a dual durometer extrusion combines both functions into one piece, which significantly reduces assembly costs while enhancing performance and function.
- Thin cap to allow flexibility on a base material
- Add multiple properties to a part at a reduced cost
- UV protection
- Produce a part with both flex and rigid PVC
