Developing a bespoke plastic extrusion that is perfectly suited to its use and environment can be a technical and complex process. At Rocal Extrusions, we have a team of experts who have developed and delivered thousands of bespoke plastic profiles for our customers across countless different industries and applications. Thanks to our hands on approach to project management and in-house tooling capabilities, we can develop a bespoke plastic extrusion from scratch to a completed product in as little as four weeks.
Each new extrusion project will be allocated a Technical Sales Manager who will be responsible for overseeing the design, manufacture, quality assurance and delivery of your bespoke plastic profile.
Whether you are looking for a simple profile or an entire suite of complex plastic extrusions, our Technical Sales Team will communicate regularly with you throughout the process, keeping you updated on the progress of your product.

Plastic Extrusion Design
Our team have vast experience developing bespoke plastic extrusions from both working to existing drawings and also drawing, designing and specifying from scratch. If you need assistance in the initial drawing phase of plastic extrusion development, our team can help produce detailed CAD drawings of a profile that is perfectly suited to your application.
Developing the Right Blend
Our team will work closely with you to understand the unique application in which your plastic extrusion will be used. By understanding the application of your bespoke plastic profile, our experienced team can specify a polymer blend to deliver an extrusion that meets your individual performance needs. Here are some of the properties we regularly develop plastic extrusions to deliver:
- Heat Resistance
- Cold Resistance
- Abrasion Resistance
- Fire Resistance
- Chemical Resistance
- Electrical Resistance
- Impact Strength
- Tensile Strength
- UV Stability
- Strong Adhesive Properties
- Food Grade
Once we have determined the profile and polymer blend required for your extrusion, we can begin producing the tooling and trailing needed to manufacture and rigorously test your profile.
Tooling and Testing
Our in-house tooling team will develop a dye that produces your plastic profile accurately and efficiently. As we tackle this job in-house, we can make small changes to improve the production speed of your chosen profile quickly and cost effectively, passing these savings on to our customers where possible.
All of our tooling is designed, engineered and tested by our experienced toolmakers, who use state of the art CAD software to ensure every tool we produce offers consistent quality and efficient manufacturing speeds. Our investment in CAD technology means we are even able to map the flow of your unique polymer blend through a virtual tool to identify areas for improvement and potential adaptations to make producing your bespoke plastic profile as efficient and cost effective as possible.
Throughout this process, your Technical Sales Manager will keep you regularly updated with our progress, even sharing samples, photographs and videos with your team to bring the process to life.
