Providing Adhesives or Film to Custom Plastic Extrusions

Formtech can apply adhesives or film to a product in-line, reducing the labor and time needed to apply such products manually.

Formtech can apply adhesives, including the following, in a variety of widths, thicknesses, and colors:

Specialty tooling, including vacuum calibration, is generally necessary in order to extrude hollow type profiles.  However, with Formtech’s own tool building capabilities and its relationships with world class tooling vendors, hollow profiles can still be a viable and cost effective solution for your need.

  • Foam
  • Film
  • Transfer
  • Removable
  • Permanent
  • Magnetic

The adhesive is covered with an easy-to-remove backing, so that the extrusion can be applied quickly and easily to its mating part.

Plastic films can also be applied to products to protect them during transportation and installation.  The plastic films are static based, meaning that they adhere to the plastic through static electricity and no residue will remain after the film is removed.  The plastic film can also be ordered with printing, such as with your company’s logo, if desired.
