There are many benefits of using co-extrusion, but the biggest advantage is the ability to add different finishes, colors, and materials to one extruded profile. Co-Extrusion allows for a streamlined extrusion process involving a singular production line. This leads to lower costs associated with facility resources and time spent extruding, and increases productivity and efficiency. Co-extrusion adds additional functionality unavailable to standard single extruded profiles. By utilizing different plastics together, a profile can achieve increased stability, flexibility, or protection from heat or chemicals.
Co-extrusion applications are widely used across many industries. In the medical field, co-extruded colored tubing can be used to quickly identify what is flowing within. Co-extruded tubing is quite popular due to all of the added characteristics provided by the different plastics combined as well. Co-extrusion is also a popular method used in creating wood composite decking for similar reasons.
