We convert polymers into finished product using a variety of manufacturing techniques:

processicon

Extrusion

Is the process that creates continuous lengths of a fixed cross sectional profile. Polymer pellets are heated, melted and extruded through a die. Profiles, tubing, hoses and gasket seals are produced in this manner. Typically used for high volume production requirements.

processicon

Injection Moulding

Is the process whereby polymer pellets are heated into a resin and converted by means of high pressure injection into a mould. The molten plastic cools in the cavity of the mould and is then ejected as a solid part. Typically used for high volume production requirements.

processicon

Blow Moulding

Is the process that creates hollow plastic parts. This conversion of polymer pellets by means of an extruded molten parison entering the cavity of a metal die while simultaneously providing positive pressure i.e. ‘blowing’ the plastic into the die to create a hollow product. Bottles and packaging products are produced in this manner. Typically used for high volume production requires.

processicon

Vacuum Forming

Is the process of applying a negative pressure (vacuum) to a heated sheet of plastic which is at the correct thermoforming temperature. The mould, now under vacuum, draws the plastic sheet into the shape of the product. Typically used for lower volume production requirements with comparatively low tooling costs. Ideal for the production of larger products up to 1500mm by 2500mm.
