Sheet Extrusion

Sheet extrusion is a technique for making flat plastic sheets from a variety of resins. The thinner gauges are thermoformed into packaging applications such as drink cups, deli containers, produce trays, baby wipe containers and margarine tubs. Another market segment uses thick sheet for industrial and recreational applications like truck bed liners, pallets, automotive dunnage, playground equipment and boats. The third primary use for extruded sheet is in geomembranes, where flat sheet is welded into large containment systems for mining applications and municipal waste disposal.

Our multiple technology platforms combined with our innovative research and development team allow us to provide customers with a broad range of resins to meet the many specific needs of sheet applications. Our world-class sales and marketing team and highly experienced technical support team can assist customers with resin selection, process optimization and application development. Our Plastics Technical Center has three heat extrusion production lines that produce customer samples from 5 to 250 mils thick and up to 36 inches trimmed width.
