The crosshead extrusion process is used when we produce parts that require reinforcement or encapsulation. The process involves running a substrate through a 90-degree crosshead while simultaneously extruding a coating over it.
This coating adds a strong and durable finish over the material, ensuring that it is prepared for the final applications.
Crosshead extrusion coating is often used on metallic substrates, but it can also be used with some fabrics and textiles.
This process is often the best choice when you need to add a waterproof layer to your products, create a decorative exterior, or increase the amount of protection surrounding the inner material.
The most common uses include cable, wire, pipe, electrical conduit, chain, dowels, and even rope or nylon strappings.
But that’s just a start. Contact one of our representatives today to learn more about these services and how we can customize them to your needs.
