Cable Components Group (CCG) has various profile extrusion manufacturing lines capable of processing fluoropolymers, commodity thermoplastics, and engineering resins. Ranging from 1” to 3”, CCG’s extruders are perfectly positioned to produce custom profiles, tubes, rods, and mono/multi-filaments ranging from 10µm to 10mm.
In addition to profile extrusion expertise, CCG enables four specialty extrusion processes: slit-film extrusion; tube co-extrusion; structural yarn coating; and multi-filament fiber extrusion.
- Slit-film extrusion: CCG’s fluoropolymer capable slit-film process is positioned for high efficiency and high output production. These tapes can be used in high temperature, operating temperature greater than 150C, high flame retardancy applications as a wrap, bisector, or separator.
- Tube co-extrusion: CCG’s tube co-extrusion process is focused on bi-layer tubes where the inner layer uses functionalized materials such as slip agent, anti-static, or semi-conductive compounds. The outer layer is designed for toughness, weatherability, and harsh environment survivability.
- Structural yarn coating: CCG has the capability to coat structural yarns such as aramid fiber, engineering resin, glass, and carbon fiber yarns with a range of polymers from polyolefins to fluoropolymers.
- Multi-filament extrusion: CCG’s fluoropolymer profile extrusion capabilities extend to multi-filament extrusion process. This process is coupled with downstream equipment such as fiber stretching/annealing and chopping to produce precise denier staple fiber. Fluoropolymer staple fiber is used as a binding agent in advanced materials and highly engineered composites. This multi-stage manufacturing process can produce multifilament fiber between 15-45 microns.
