In a general sense, all shaped or configured extrusions are profile extrusions, whether tubular or another geometric cross-section in form. Any extrusion that is not a flat sheet or film product is often referred to as a profile extrusion.
Basically, any plastic extrusion that is not a flat sheet or film product. However, Pexco tends to distinguish between open profile configurations and extrusions versus closed ones. And more to the point, closed configurations of simple geometries are often better referred to as tubes.
Profile Extrusion Technology
Custom plastic profile extrusion is Pexco’s DNA. For more than 50 years, Pexco has been developing and manufacturing profile extrusions. More than 80 engineering and production specialists provide consultation, design and production of custom extrusions to meet a variety of end-use challenges.
Profile extrusion is an art and skill. Maintaining quailty and tolerances with the extrudate downstream from the die is no simple task. Pexco operates 6 internal tool and die centers across the United States, and we deploy the most sophisticated cooling methods.
