Adding the finishing touches to your rigid plastic profile is easy with Rocal Extrusions. Not only are we able to blend our polymers to offer a colour match to any pantone colour, we also offer both on-line and off-line wrapping services.

We stock a wide range of foils and papers, from realistic woodgrain finishes to bold colours and even metallic effects too, offering you an impressive choice of finishes as standard.

If you’re looking for a perfect match between your desired plastic extrusion and your existing product, we are able to source the required papers or foiling to meet your required specification.

RIGID PLASTIC EXTRUSION MATERIALS

MATERIAL
SELECTION

At Rocal Extrusions we choose to manufacture our rigid plastic extrusions using either PVC or ABS, offering our customers flexibility and allowing us to develop rigid plastic extrusions to meet your exact specification and budget.

When developing your bespoke rigid plastic extrusion, our team will carefully consider your desired application and advise on which material is best suited to your needs.

WHY CHOOSE PVC?

PVC rigid plastic extrusions offer a versatility that other materials simply cannot match. At Rocal Extrusions, we can manufacture PVC rigid plastic extrusions in almost any colour, including clear grades too. PVC plastic extrusions are also suitable for indoor or outdoor use, available as food grade materials and are generally a cost-effective option when manufacturing rigid plastic extrusions.
Typical uses for PVC rigid plastic extrusions include:

• Trunking
• Trims
• Ticketing Strips
• Edging strips
• Cladding
• Glazing beads

WHY CHOOSE ABS?

ABS rigid plastic extrusions offer excellent adhesive properties and have the added benefit of being resistant to both high and low temperatures, with even fire-resistant grades being available. Like ABS can be produced as a food grade material whilst also offering good chemical resistance. One significant advantage that ABS rigid plastic extrusion offers over PVC is that they offer much greater shatter resistance, meaning they can be stapled or nailed without causing damage.
Typical uses for ABS rigid plastic extrusions include:

• Cold Rooms
• Freezer components
• Furniture edging
• Toys

HOW DO WE MAKE

RIGID PLASTIC EXTRUSIONS?

Either PVC or ABS granules are fed into the hopper of our extrusion machines and are then drawn down into the screw. The screw is then heated by external heating elements, causing the polymer granules to melt and become more malleable. As the polymer granules move along the screw, they are forced though a die, containing the cross section of the profile of the extrusion required. The profile is then fed through a series of cooled water baths before being cut to size and packed.
