Why we Focus on Product Development

Since starting up in 2009 with just one plastic extrusion line, product development has always been a key element of Rocal Extrusions expansion. We’ve chosen not to rely on standard profiles and the same products, but instead diversified to have a production unit which now holds 9 extrusion lines and a tool making department. Our investment into product development has enabled us to become one of the only plastic extrusion manufacturers in the UK to offer wrapping and foiling services. As well, we developed of our unique timber replacement material; RocFoam. We’ve invested time, money and resources into our workforce and machinery, and our diverse product range certainly reflects that! Here at Rocal Extrusions, work even more closely than the standard supplier to our customers to really understand their use for our plastic extrusions. We develop ways to make their production easier, whether that’s a shape or by us adding a process that helps to reduce our customers’ production times. The UK Manufacturing market is at a high and showing no signs of slowing down – and neither are we! We want to continue to support the British market and help to eliminate those costs of importing and minimise those...

RocFoam: Making your doors moisture resistant!

We are proud to introduce our exclusive RocFoam technology: a result of our 13 years of experience in plastic extrusions and composite doors. Our innovative RocFoam is a unique direct replacement for timber. This vinyl based cellular thermoplastic extrusion has been developed by us at Rocal for a variety of different uses and applications within many industries. RocFoam can be used to replace timber, offering most of the same advantages without any weaknesses. RocFoam offers many technical benefits. It is extremely lightweight where timber is not and is also completely moisture resistant. It will not expand when exposed to water in any situation, even in the most adverse weather conditions. Moreover, it is also entirely resistant to changes in temperature and does not rot. RocFoam is also highly customisable and can easily be painted. It offers a good screw fixing and has good adhesion to a wide range of surfaces. All in all, this innovative creation is extremely versatile and offers modern performance benefits that other commonly used natural materials do not. Here at Rocal Group, we now use RocFoam in all of our composite doors, as well as in our moisture resistant internal doors.  This is due to it...
