Since 1955,

The Spiratex Company has been a leader in custom plastic extrusion. We pioneered the extrusion process for UHMW/PE, setting industry standards that are used in markets around the world.

We have both ram extrusion and screw extrusion capabilities, allowing us to design and extrude your tubing or profile with virtually any thermoplastic polymer. As a company that has partnered with various material suppliers to develop and test new extrusion-grade resins, we know exactly how materials will perform. Let us put our expertise to work for you.

We love a challenge. Complex shapes, unique sizes—the more difficult the profile, the more we like it. We don’t just specialize in custom work, we’re experts in developing custom solutions. We’re only successful if our customers are, and we’ll work hard to ensure that success, whether it’s a standard part or custom project.

From design to material selection, our expert engineers will be your partner throughout the process. Request a quote for your next project.
