Extrusion

Extrusion is the process by which Plastic or Rubber materials can be formed into various Profile shapes. It is normally a continuous process where raw material is fed in one end, is propelled through the machine using an auger screw and out through a Die which forms the shape of the extrudate. In Thermoplastic extrusion raw material (which is normally in the form of granules) is heated through the action of the screw and additional heaters until it is in a molten condition before being formed at the Die.

Apex GB have over 20 years experience in manufacturing Plastic & Rubber Extrusions, Extruded Profiles and Tubing. We're quite rightfully proud of our reputation for consistently meeting the needs of customers over that time. Because we've remained small and focussed we've also remained more attentitive, more cost effective and more responsive than larger manufacturers.
