Crosshead Extrusion Coating
Crosshead Extrusion coating is the process of running a substrate through a 90 degree crosshead and extruding a coating over the substrate. This is the process used to put the plastic covering on wire and cable.
At Lakeland Plastics we have been providing crosshead extrusion coating services since our company’s inception in 1962. We have more than 50 years of crosshead extrusion coating experience.
