Custom Plastic Coextrusions
A coextrusion is a plastic extrusion made with two thermoplastic materials. Coextrusions are useful when the desired characteristics cannot be obtained through a monolayer or single material extrusion. Crescent Plastics has extensive experience in creating custom coextrusions, and can provide coextruded plastic profiles, or capstocked profiles, with two similar or dissimilar materials that will bond together into a single, seamless piece.
The coextrusion process opens up a wide range of possibilities for plastic profile extruded plastic shapes. Some of the more common coextrusions we produce include:
- Clear & opaque materials
- 2 Different colored materials
- Rigid & flexible materials
- Thin capstock over a thicker substrate
- Flexible “living hinge” joining two rigid materials
- and more
