Co-Extrusion Capability

Co-extrusion is the process by which more than one stream of material is simultaneously worked through a die, utilizing two or more extruders to deliver resins of differing viscosity and other properties.  Often co-extrusion is performed to create a extrusion with multiple performance characteristics related to the different types of plastic materials extruded into form.  Pexco operates well over 50 co-extruders across its business platform. 

Co-Extrusion and Multi-Extrusion Technologies

Co-extrusion and tri-extrusion capability benefit our customers by permitting products to feature different finishes, durometers, multiple colors, and other diverse properties all within a singly fused component.  For example, parts with built-in hinges often are co-extruded.  Another example would be a plastic part featuring both clear and opaque elements across the part.  These "tricks" are achieved through co-extrusion.
