A material difference

Pexco’s Industrial market applications in specialty plastics are often characterized by customer needs for select, engineered materials (or blends of polymeric materials and additives) with unique performance variables, whether for example heat/burn resistance, structural integrity and durability, or other functional properties such as light diffusion.


At full capacity

In this market, both OEM and distributor customers benefit from design innovation with conventional product concepts and profile geometries which often expect high-throughput capacity and experience.  Examples here may include price tag holders for retail shelves, fencing slats for chain-link fences, or writing instrument barrels.
