Frequently Asked Questions

Q – Do you provide samples of the plastic extrusions?

A – We generally keep samples of our plastic extrusions from the last time we used a production tool. These might be a different colour or material to what you need, but we can usually provide something suitable. Samples of our plastic extrusions are normally 2-300mm long for ease of posting

Q – What are your Minimum Order Quantities for production runs of the plastic extrusions?

A – The minimum runs for our plastic extrusions are usually 1000m but can vary depending on the profile and material requirements. We can run 500m or even short prototype runs on some tools, but these can work out relatively expensive. Please phone us for more specific details regarding the plastic extrusion you need.

Q – Do you keep stock of the plastic extrusions listed?

A – Some of the plastic extrusions shown are stock items. You can visit our stock site for comprehensive information on our stock plastic extrusions – click on the red button at the bottom of this page

Q – How long does it take to get plastic extrusion tooling made?

A – If the custom plastic extrusion (also known as a bespoke extrusion) is reasonably small and simple the normal lead time is 4 weeks. For more complicated tooling the lead time is generally 4 / 6 weeks. Very complex or large plastic extrusion tooling can take several weeks

Q – Can you colourmatch to our specification?

A – Yes, from a RAL or Pantone reference, or a physical sample of the colour itself. A matched colour for plastic extrusions can add to the lead time and cost of a production run as the material may need to be specially made with a high minimum order quantity

Q – Do you operate Credit Accounts?

A – Yes, subject to normal checks. Please ask us for an Application Form
