What is Extrusion Molding?
Extrusion Molding is the molding of plastic or metals into a pre-defined shape. During the process, plastic is melted and pushed through a die to create a linear form. The final shape, commonly called a rod, although it is not necessarily cylindrical, is then cooled and can then be cut to various lengths, depending upon the application. Products such as fishing rods, yoga mats, water pipes, window frames are made out of extrusion molding.
