Plastic extrusion is one of numerous processes used to manufacture plastic goods and components. Extrusion is a process that creates objects with fixed cross-sectional profiles by pushing molten plastic material through a die, thus generating a continuous profile that can then be further machined or cut after it cools. This process is ideal for creating plastic tubing and piping.
Custom Plastic Tubing Extrusion
We offer our clients a variety of extruded plastic tubing products. Some of our tubing options include:
Layflat tubing is ideal for sheathing and liquid flow applications. Most manufacturers offer layflat tubing in a broad range of diameters to accommodate the needs of a variety of flow types and volumes.
Polyethylene (PE) tubing is frequently used to transfer liquids and gases in fluid transfer systems. PE features corrosion resistance, durability, flexibility, and a good strength-to-weight ratio.
Polypropylene (PP) tubing features high temperature and pressure capabilities. This makes it ideal for fluid transfer systems that need to move very high-temperature liquids or gases.
Given its resistances to fatigue, petroleum, mold and fungus, grease and oil, alkalis, and solvents, nylon tubing is ideal for many harsh operating environments. It also bends easily and handles high-pressure scenarios well.
Acrylic tubing is available in both clear and custom colors and is common for decorative applications, sales displays, LED light tubing, and more.
Polycarbonate (PC) Tubing
Polycarbonate is another material that is available in a range of grades, including general purpose, UV, FDA-approved, and high-temperature. It is frequently used in medical devices, as LED light tubing, in electronics, and more. Polycarbonate is flame-resistant with a broad temperature range, featuring a high impact strength even when exposed to extreme cold and excellent resistant to high temperature exposure.
Custom Tubing Variations
