Lauren Plastics continues to create custom extruded plastic components for markets around the world. Lauren Plastics believes the best solutions start with a "customer to engineer" relationship, willing to evaluate the application and its issues. The knowledge of material properties and formulations, coupled with extensive design and value added capabilities, make Lauren the ideal partner for any extruded plastic need.
Beyond the wide variety of standard rigid and flexible materials to choose from, Lauren Plastics can develop custom materials based on environmental and functional requirements. For example, our engineers have designed a custom formulated TPE for improved durability in extreme temperatures and abrasive environments. These materials are known for their enhanced flexibility and UV properties and can withstand the toughest environments for both indoor and outdoor use. This type of material is currently being used in applications for leading companies in the automotive and retail industries.
As an alternative to the traditional surface applied low friction coatings, Lauren Plastics has the ability to add a slip coat into the raw material during the extrusion process for a built-in coating result. Why would this benefit Lauren Plastics or their customers? Unlike typical coating methods that only cover a thin layer of the surface and may wear off during cycling, this embedded slip coat is present throughout the profile and therefore does not wear off allowing for improved longevity and durability.
"We appreciate when a customer requests a new seal or redesign that challenges our creativity. I believe this is where we do our best work. We examine each segment of the process and put our energy into making an innovative product that solves issues never thought possible." said Kevin Edwards, Application Engineer of Lauren Plastics. "We strive to provide products that completely satisfy the customer so that they keep coming back!"
Lauren Plastics continues to pursue investments in people, technology, equipment, and continuous improvement processes which are all vital to future growth. "Our team is not afraid to take on a challenge to drive our company forward. With each challenge we have built on our knowledge and capabilities to offer a clear solution to our customer. We have proven our willingness to do what it takes to satisfy and are hungry for more opportunities," said Chuck Laney, President of Lauren Plastics.
