TYPES OF MATERIAL
Extrusion techniques can be used to process most thermoplastics.
A characteristic that often differentiates extruded from injection-molded plastics is the viscosity of the plastic at normal processing temperatures. Extruded plastics often have a higher melt viscosity, which allows the extrudate to retain the shape imparted to it by the die while the extrudate is in the quenching stages.

Arita Plastics extrusion lines can be run using variety of materials as the following below. All materials are available as transparent or opaque, with color matching available.

PMMA (Acrylic) Polymethyl Methacrylate
HI-PMMA (High Impact / PMMA)
GPPS General Purpose Polystyrene
PS Polystyrene
HIPSĀ  High Impact Polystyrene
ABS ACRYLONITRILE - BUTADIENE - STYRENE
PETG (UV & NON-UV)
PC Polycarbonate

Combinations of various resins can be used to gain special physical, biological, or chemical properties. Many additives can be used during the extrusion process to enhance processing characteristic of the polymer or to alter product properties.
