Textile plastic coextrusion

Perfect fusion of textile and plastic.

What is textile plastic coextrusion?

Plastic-textile coextrusion is an innovative process that harmoniously combines the properties of plastic and textile to create a material that is strong, versatile and durable. At the heart of the process, thermoplastic resins are melted and deposited on a textile, usually in the form of high-tenacity polyester yarns. This ingenious marriage makes the most of the unique characteristics of each material, opening the way to a multitude of applications in various industrial sectors.

The advantages of textile plastic coextrusion

Textile plastic coextrusion offers a range of distinct advantages that make it a preferred material for many industrial applications. Here is a list of the main advantages:

  • Exceptional strength: The use of high-tenacity polyester yarns combined with the robust properties of thermoplastic resins gives textile plastic coextrusion unrivalled strength. As a result, this material can withstand heavy loads and mechanical stresses, guaranteeing a long service life for finished products.
  • Versatility: Textile plastic coextrusion is highly versatile, making it easy to adapt to a variety of applications. It can be used to create products with a wide range of characteristics, from flexibility and lightness to rigidity and strength, depending on the specific needs of each project.
  • Weather resistance: Thanks to the thermoplastic resins used in the coextrusion process, end products are resistant to adverse weather conditions such as UV, humidity, extreme temperatures and inclement weather. This makes them an ideal choice for outdoor applications.
  • Durability: The combination of strong, resistant materials makes textile plastic coextrusion durable over time. It requires less maintenance and offers greater longevity, reducing replacement and long-term maintenance costs.

FAQ | Textile plastic coextrusion

Coextrusion is used to manufacture a wide range of products. Common examples include multilayer films for food packaging, composite pipes and tubes, plastic profiles, composite sheets and panels, multilayer cables and sheaths, and blow-moulded products such as bottles.

The materials commonly used in coextrusion are plastics such as polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), as well as thermoplastic rubbers (TPE) and elastomers.

The equipment required for coextrusion includes a main extruder with several feed hoppers for the different materials, a multi-layer extrusion nozzle, temperature and pressure control devices, and a cooling system to solidify the extruded product.

When designing a coextrusion product, it's essential to take into account the specific properties of each material used, performance requirements, manufacturing constraints and process parameters. The design of the extrusion nozzle geometry and the selection of appropriate materials are key aspects of coextrusion.
