Applying Adhesives or Film to Custom Plastic Extrusions

Formtech applies adhesives to custom plastic extrusions.  One or multiple adhesives are applied down the length of the extrusion.  We complete this process in-line, which reduces the labor and time needed to apply these products manually.  Adhesives are available in a variety of widths, thicknesses, and colors, and bond to a variety of surfaces.  Types of available adhesives include:

  • Foam
  • Transfer
  • Removable
  • Permanent
  • Magnetic

An easy-to-remove liner covers the adhesive, so that the extrusion can be applied quickly and easily to its mating part.  Since the adhesive replaces nails, screws, or other attachment devices, applying adhesives to your custom plastic extrusion can improve your product’s ease of use.

Formtech can also apply plastic films to your custom extrusion, to protect them during transportation or installation.  These plastic films are static-based, so they adhere to the plastic through static electricity.  No sticky or greasy residue remains on your plastic extrusion after the film is removed!  The plastic film can also be customized with printing, such as with your company’s logo, if desired.
