Lauren stands out because of its ability to deliver a wide range of integrated manufacturing capabilities to solve customer problems. This includes dual-durometer extrusions, which are perfect for applications that require high-performance sealing. A “soft” portion delivers excellent sealing properties while a rigid material provides options for easy attachment.
Lauren creates rigid profiles using continuous extrusion as well as injection molding. High-quality rigid products provide the best solutions for applications that require complex profiles, structured support and more. Our design engineers can customize profiles and our die shop provides tooling for a wide array of rigid products.
