The biggest advantage of utilizing tri-extrusion is the ability to add different finishes, colors, and materials to one extruded profile. With tri-extrusion, all of the operations are streamlined into one tri-extrusion machine. This adds increased productivity and efficiency. Time is not spent waiting for multiple pieces to be extruded separately and assembled. Cost is also cut down due to fewer facility resources needed to operate. Tri-extrusion adds additional functionality unavailable to regular standard extruded profiles as well. By utilizing different plastics, a profile can achieve increased stability, flexibility, or protection from heat or chemicals.
Tri-extrusion applications are widely used across many industries. Creating transparent sections within an extruded plastic profile is a popular use of tri-extrusion in lighting. Tri-extrusion is also great for adding flexible or softer materials within a rigid piece. This can be helpful when creating a profile that needs additional flexibility by creating hinges.
