Meta-Plast® is a process that combines metal roll forming and thermoplastic extrusion into one process. As a continuous strip of metal is roll formed, the thermoplastic materials are co-extruded and bonded to the metal substrate resulting in a unique composite linear profile that can be customized for various applications.
When compared to traditional plastic extruded parts, META-PLAST parts have improved mechanical properties. Stiffness, yield strength, coefficient of expansion, and impact properties are enhanced by introducing a metal shape into a thermoplastic extrusion.
