RecoPlanc Hollow Plastic Profile is lightweight and sturdy hollow plastic board. It can be cut or drilled like wood and is made from 100% recycled plastic.
The extruded plastic profile is hugely versatile and can be used to build log stores, fencing and raised beds.
What is Plastic Extrusion?
The plastic profile extrusion process is the extrusion of a shaped product which can take a solid or hollow form. Products ranging from tubing to window frames are manufactured via profile extrusion. A hollow plastic extrusion can save customers on price as it reduces the material cost of a product. Eliminating material in the hollow area reduces the amount of plastic needed in order to create the profile.
Hollow profiles are ideal when a source of air is required to allow the centre of the product to maintain shape. Internal walls can be added through the hollow area of the profile in order to add to the rigidity of the product.
In some instances, part of the matting or an object must run through a hollow portion of an extrusion. Speciality tooling, such as vacum calibration, is generally needed in order to extrude hollow type profiles.
In the car industry, two in three car seats are built with custom plastic extrusions. They are also used expansively in lawn and garden, medical, consumer, transportation and appliance industries.
