Plastic Profiles for the Telecom Industry
Intek Plastics can create custom plastic extrusions for telecommunication, involving a wide range of technologies including wired communications, mobile networking, satellite communication, and more. The telecom industry is constantly changing and evolving as technology continues to advance. Custom plastic extrusions are widely used to protect equipment and infrastructure within the industry.
Intek is also capable of creating extrusions for power management, distribution, data centers, and new energy generation. Plastic extrusion is a manufacturing process that involves forcing thermoplastic materials through a specialized die to create a specific shape or profile. Common types of plastic extrusion include plastic co-extrusions and plastic tri-extrusions.
Plastic Extrusion Applications for Telecommunication & Data Centers
Common plastic extrusion applications used for Telecommunication & Data Centers include:
- Data Center Containment Systems & Aisles
- Extruded PVC Tubing
- Linear Plastic Enclosures
- Bus Bar Insulators
- Cable and Wire Management
Plastic Extrusion Materials Used in the Telecom Industry
- Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS):
- Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC): PVC is commonly used for cable sheathing, cable trays, and more. It is a preferred plastic material due to its durability and cost-effectiveness.
- Polyethylene (PE): Polyethylene is especially suitable for outdoor applications due to moisture and corrosion resistance.
Benefits of Plastic Extrusions for Telecommunication
- Customizable: The shape, size, and color of extruded plastic profiles can be easily customized to suit your design
- Durable: Extruded plastic profiles are known for durability, able to combat a variety of weather conditions such as moisture, sunlight, and temperature fluctuations.
- Cost-Efficient: Extruded plastics are often more affordable than other common materials, making them an economical choice for producing components in the telecommunications industry.
- Recyclable: Recycled plastic materials are sustainable and reduce environmental impact when used to create new profiles and components. Ask about our recycled plastic options!
