When it comes to design, PlasTech is in a category all their own. Our team of design engineers will listen to your need and create innovative solutions that exceed your expectations. And all done to meet your timeline. Let us know what your plastic extrusion need is and we will work with you to develop a high quality, cost effective solution.

Countless hours are spent in the design phase of every job. The success of any custom plastic profile extrusion relies on getting this first step right. The material selection plays a critical role in how the part is designed in order to maximize economic value and product performance expectations.

When the designer wishes to select a material for the product, here are ten properties that should be considered:

  • Cost
  • Hardness
  • Clarity
  • Flexural strength
  • Stiffness
  • Tensile strength
  • Temperature resistance
  • Elongation
  • Chemical resistance
  • Color
