OUR PLASTIC EXTRUSION TECHNOLOGY
Beyond traditional single material profiles, the extrusion process uniquely allows the design of products made with multiple materials and processes to meet your specific needs and reduce cost by eliminating assembly and extending functionality.
- Single Extrusion – Profiles designed using a single thermoplastic material.
- Dual Extrusion – Profiles combining two materials into a single profile.
- Tri Extrusion – Profiles combining three materials into a single profile.
- Cellular or “Foamed” Extrusion – (Celuka & Free Foam) Profiles produced using a foaming agent to lower density.
- Post Formed Extrusion – Profiles extruded flat then post formed through calibration tooling.
- Embedded Extrusion – Embedding wire, metal, or other materials within a profile during extrusion.
Let Omega enhance your extrusions by matching the color, gloss, or surface of other materials used in your products to provide a consistent and quality appearance. Many options are available to give you the look you need.
- Custom color matching
- Gloss matching
- Printed Textures
- Metallic compounds
- Top coats
Many applications require that profile materials meet specific UL, NSF, or physical requirements. Whether you have specific requirements or not, you can be confident that Omega will take time to fully understand your application and recommend the best thermoplastic material to meet your objectives.
Our long-term relationships with our material suppliers assure you of competitive pricing on the latest material developments as well as traditional extrusion materials such as:
- PVC – Polyvinyl Chloride
- PE – (HDPE & LDPE) Polyethylene
- PP – Polypropylene
- PS – Polystyrene
- PC – Polycarbonate
- ABS – Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene
- EVA – Ethylene Vinyl Acetate
- TPE – Thermoplastic Elastomer
- PMMA (Acrylic) – Polymethyl Methacrylate
- PA (Nylon) – Polyamide
- Custom formulations (Low smoke & low flame, UV protection, chemical resistance, etc.)
To offer further cost saving solutions, many fabrication operations can be performed in the extrusion process to eliminate costly secondary operations.
- Cutting to length
- Tape application
- Primer or glue application
- Heat & Ultrasonic welding
- Sub assembly
- Tailored packaging
