We produce an ever-increasing variety of rigid profiles in a variety of colours, including clear.
Profiles can be produced in UV stabilised material for outdoor use. Tooling for these profiles is more complex as sizing plates and sometimes vacuum calibration jigs are required to set the shape along the cooling carriage.
The commodity thermoplastic most widely used across all industries. Durable, stiff and with excellent chemical resistance it is highly versatile with grades suitable for both indoors and outdoors as well as food grades. Inherently fire resistant being self-extinguishing, it is compounded in clear and coloured versions
Re-processed material can be extruded again without loss of performance when function and price outweigh aesthetics. Especially welcomed where sustainability is required
Tough and opaque with good impact and chemical resistance. Offering a wider working temperature range than PVC, especially lower down the scale. Better employed indoors but accepts paint/adhesives
Similar to ABS but more durable having outstanding outdoor weatherability with no loss of colour, gloss and mechanical properties. Can be used as a capping on, e.g. PVC. Readily accepts adhesives
Lower density, rigid, brittle. Available in clear and coloured grades. Indoor use, accepts painting, plating and adhesives
Tough, rigid, translucent and hard wearing. Resistant to fuels, oils, fats. A little susceptible to moisture absorption but has good creep resistance
Outstanding impact resistance. High dielectric strength, good high temperature performance and offering good flame resistance. Clear. Opaque grades available
Better chemical resistance than PC with higher temperature and flame performance than ABS
Processed in both low (LDPE) and high (HDPE) versions, this is a tough and translucent polymer with a low co-efficient of friction. Good chemical resistance, used indoors and outdoors
Tough and creep resistant, offering excellent clarity. Suitable for food use
Tough, lightweight and highly transparent. Best known as a glass substitute in lenses and safety glass. Outstanding weatherability. Can be coloured and modified for lighting diffusers
Highly inert semi-rigid material in co- and homo-polymer derivatives. Tough and offering good chemical resistance as well as low friction
Opaque, engineering grade materials with good dielectric strength and heat distortion temperature. Some grades low smoke/halogen free
Clearer and lighter than PVC and offering good impact and UV resistance
A polymer containing wood flour. Lightweight and durable, it is used to give a wood effect to the profile.
