Specialist building products extruder Euroseal has launched a new service offer, geared towards supporting fabricators and plastics specialists in increasing efficiencies and lowering costs, by putting down their own and project specific extrusions.
Offering rapid turnaround and flexible capacity, Euroseal says it can support fabricators and plastic building products specialists reduce their own overheads through bespoke extrusion of products.
This includes extrusion to project specific requirements, reducing wastage and costs, as well as product development.
Chris Duff, Business Development Manager, Euroseal, explained: “We operate without any real limitations because everything we do is bespoke. It means we aren’t constrained by standard lengths or dimensions. If you want something that’s normally available at a 3m length at a 2m length, then we’ll cut it for you.
“This means you reduce waste and either increase margin, or the competitiveness of your quote, because you don’t have to factor it into your cost model.
“In the same way, if you want a particular colour for a specific project, we have the flexibility to do it.”
With one of the UK’s most technically advanced extrusion facilities, Euroseal has extensive experience in the manufacture of a diverse range of thermoplastic extrusions, including rigid profile and co-extrusions in PVC, wood composite, HDPE, Polystyrene, Polypropylene and ABS.
With capacity to extrude profile from 40g to 6kg per metre and 0.7mm to 10mm thick, this includes construction products including curtain walling pressure plates, conservatory and window profiles, and cladding. It also manufactures electrical extrusions; automotive profiles; hygienic wall and ceiling profiles and garden decking.
“One of the other things that we can do is work with fabricators, plastics suppliers or even installers to refine products”, said Duff. “We have so many conversations with people commenting on the off-the-shelf profile that they buy where they say, ‘if only it was slightly different it would be much better’ – the point is it can be!”
Euroseal offers a complete extrusion service, from initial concept to delivery. This includes, design and CAD creation and manufacture of tooling, to extrusion, quality control, personalisation and packaging, plus shipment either for own distribution or direct to customers. It also offers financial support to its customers to invest in tooling on larger volume runs.
“Extruding your own profiles and putting down your own tooling takes away the limitations. It can also deliver significant savings on larger projects and in-house efficiencies. The volumes don’t have to be that big for the financial savings or return to stack-up.”
