With the co-extrusion process, Profile Extrusions is able to construct a part with two dissimilar materials, while still maintaining the properties of each. The extrusion process works effectively of rigid material for strength, and a soft or flex material for function into various profiles. For example, when a softer gasket must be attached to a rigid part to provide a closure seal, a dual durometer extrusion combines both functions into one piece. This can significantly reduce assembly costs while enhancing performance and function.
A thin cap can also be added to a base material to add multiple properties
