Sheet Extrusion / Extruded Sheets

At CPL we are in a unique position, in that we manufacture our own high quality sheets of plastic using our own on-site extrusion machinery and technology. Using raw plastic materials in pellet form, and returned plastic that is recycled, to enable a sustainable product (by closing the loop), we can create the exact size, finish, plastic content and colour you require.

Using raw plastic materials in pellet form, we can create the exact size, shape, finish, plastic content and even colour you require. The extruder’s in-built roller press allows us to achieve the length and depth of plastic sheet you require prior to the vacuum forming process.
