Solutions: Sheet Extrusion

Flat sheet extrusion is a manufacturing technology used to produce a flat sheet of material for thermoforming applications. The process starts with plastic resin, which is melted and pushed through a flat die. After this, it passes through chilled rolls in a calendering process that gives the sheet its final thickness and appearance.

We know that getting the proper gauge for your material is essential in making sure that your product has the correct thickness and material properties once manufacturing is complete.
