Metal Extrusion vs Plastic Extrusion
Many of our customers work with us to replace their existing metal extrusions with plastic extruded profiles. Our engineering and design team works with customers to not only realize significant cost savings by switching to plastic extrusions, but to help design a replacement part that meets all of the same engineering and physical specifications and requirements necessary to create a successful plastic alternative.
