What Are Triangular Plastic Extrusions?

Before we jump into the plastic extrusions offered at Petro Packaging, let’s take a look at what these actually are. After all, it’s important to know exactly what you’re buying before making a big purchase.

Plastic extrusions are plastic tube solutions that are used to line and protect shelves and other materials. They’re ideal for keeping hard edges covered so that you can protect people who are handling that particular piece of material.

You can use triangular plastic extrusions for a number of different purposes. A few common uses for this type of extrusion include:

  • To support POS signs
  • As brackets
  • As shelving edges
  • On corner guards

Regardless of what purpose you have for purchasing triangular plastic extrusions, you can count on the team at Petro Packaging to make them correctly. You know that they’ll make high-quality packaging solutions that help you complete your project.

How Are Triangular Plastic Extrusions Made?

To make plastic extrusions, manufacturers push a raw polymer through a hopper and then through a feed throat that works on a rotating screw. The screw’s rotations are pushed by an electric motor.

The design and size of the screw will depend on exactly what type of plastic extrusion the manufacturer is making. Regardless of the design of the screw, its rotation forces the polymer through a hot barrel.

As the plastic moves through the barrel, the screw’s thread decreases and compresses the plastic. As this happens, several PID controllers heat the barrel containing the plastic, melting it and mixing it together.

Once the plastic is pushed past the end of the screw, it’s a well-mixed product. Manufacturers then push the plastic through the die to create the final shape and design of the plastic.

At this point in the process, the triangular plastic extrusions get packed up and sent out to their customers. From there, they can be used for a variety of different applications.

Now that you know a bit more about triangular plastic extrusions in general, let’s talk about the ones that Petro Packaging has to offer. Our plastic extrusions have plenty to offer that you won’t find anywhere else!

Varied Materials

Although all plastic extrusions are made out of raw polymers, they’re not made out of the same type of polymer. The type of polymer you choose to use in your triangular extrusions will depend on what application you have in mind for the final product.

Many companies only offer a single type of polymer. That makes it tough to create plastic extrusions that really get the job done and help you complete your projects.

Petro Packaging, however, offers several different types of plastic extrusion materials. You can choose from:

  • PETG Copolymer (Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol)
  • Tenite™ CAB (Cellulose Acetate Butyrate)
  • Clear Tenite™ CAP (Cellulose Acetate Propionate)

While those are our specialties, however, they’re not the only types of plastics that we can work with. Just give us a call to learn more about the different types of polymers that we can work with.
