We have over 40 years of experience in the plastic rod extrusion industry, and our team of experts is eager to put our knowledge and expertise to work for you.  



Producing Plastic Rods

Plastic rod extrusion is a plastic manufacturing process that creates plastic rods by forcing molten plastic material through a die. The die contains a series of small holes, known as die orifices, that determine the diameter and shape of the extruded rods. The plastic material is typically heated to its melting point before being forced through the die, which helps to ensure a consistent and uniform product. 

There are two main types of plastic rod extrusion:

Plastic extrusion: Single plastic material is forced through the die to create the desired shape. 

Co-extrusion: It involves forcing multiple plastic materials through the die at the same time. This results in a rod with different layers, each composed of another material.
