Designing a new plastic extrusion generally takes a few steps, the exact process required will differ in each case. As a guide, the following steps will be followed in the production of a new plastic profile.

Manufacturing Process

The raw materials come in pellet form and are control fed through a hopper into a spiralling ram or screw. The pellets are heated, mixed and compressed as they are fed through the ram, then forced through the die into a final shape. After the gasket is extruded, it is immediately cooled in chilled water, and then dried before being cut into designated lengths and boxed, or rolled onto a spool.

PVC pellets come in large sacks in the different varieties and colours.
