Extrusion

The Plastic Pipe & Profile division of Elite Polymers operates a modern plastic extruding facility providing contract manufacturing of custom extruded profiles as well as tubing.

We manufacture for a variety of industries including animal health, scientific, dairy, printing, beverage, construction as well as supplying for wholesale distribution.

Tubes

We specialise in extrusion of single layer small to mid-range tube (2mm to 40mm ID). If you are looking for a customised tube, manufactured to meet your exact requirements then you can count yourself lucky. Compared to other plastics manufacturing processes, extrusion has very low setup costs. We hold a large number of dies & pins suitable for manufacturing a large range of sizes. Unlike other plastic manufacturing processes there is often no tooling cost involved, even if your required size is customised to your requirement.

Here's a few of the neat things we can do and If you have an idea come to us. We have even made florescent tube used for fishing lures.

  • Twin tube (two tubes joined side by side)
  • Biodegradable PLA tube
  • Beverage tube from FDA approved materials
  • Notching ends of tube for draw up tubes in bottles


We have a number of extruders and the size of the tube and material selected will determine which extruder will be used to manufacture the product. We ensure your product is made in the most economical way, ensuring a high quality end product. Our short-run capabilities can help make getting your customised tube an achievable reality.When the tube is made our work is not necessarily done. We offer post production processing to add value to your product. Our automated process make it easy and cost effective, examples include: 

  • Automated coiling
  • Automated cutting
  • Cut lengths can be coiled and packaged with our semi-automated coiler
  • Notching  
  • Inline printing on the tubing for added impact.
