Extrusion

As custom extrusion specialists we can extrude material up to 80” wide, and between 0.015” and 0.390” thick. At greater thicknesses we recommend our Resin Casting service. Sheets can be extruded with a variety of finishes, and either sheeted or rolled on 3”, 4”, 6” or 8” cores.

Chemical compund icon

Compounding

Inline compounding of a variety of plastics, fillers, liquids and powders lets us tackle common performance issues like UV resistance, excessive shrink, or fire retardancy. Highly engineered additives can even improve electrical and thermal conductivity.

Lamination icon

Lamination

We can apply laminations to either or both sides of an extruded product, using carpets, films, foams, foils, shoddy and fabric. Our lamination process minimizes laminate waste, which is essential where expensive laminates are used in decorative or highly engineered applications.

Scrap buy-back

We can separate and aspirate most of the waste material generated when our sheets and rolls undergo secondary processing by our customers. Our scrap buy-back service minimizes your landfill costs and turns your waste disposal costs into a new source of revenue.

Surface Treatment

We are able to apply various coating layers through our co-extrusion process, and treat the surface of extruded materials with secondary processes to improve their properties, such as printability or anti-static dissipation.

Custom R&D

We have a long and successful history of partnering with our customers in a co-design process. If you’ve got an idea and are looking for advice on how to realize your vision, involving Highland in your R&D process at an early stage is a smart move.

Resin Casting

For products thicker than 0.390” we are able to cast resin in custom-made molds. This is also a popular service for some R&D applications where there is only a low volume of resin available for conversion to a finished product.

Multilayer Extrusion

We can extrude materials in an A/B, B/A, A/B/A, or A/B/C construction. One application is extruding endothermic blowing agents with an A/B/A finish to produce a product which foams while it is thermoformed.
