From Pellets to Perfection: The Acrylic Rods Extrusion Journey

The extrusion process for acrylic rods involves:

  1. Preparation: Acrylic pellets are fed into a hopper.
  2. Heating: The pellets are melted at high temperatures in an extruder.
  3. Extrusion: The molten acrylic is forced through a die to form a continuous rod shape.
  4. Cooling: The extruded rod is cooled and solidified.
  5. Cutting: The rod is cut to the desired lengths.
  6. Finishing: Ends may be polished or further processed based on the intended use.
What’s the difference between cast and extruded acrylic rod?

In short, cast acrylic rods are produced through molding liquid acrylic for superior clarity and finish, making them ideal for high-end applications but more expensive. Extruded acrylic rods are formed by forcing molten acrylic through a die, offering good clarity at a lower cost, suitable for general-purpose applications.
