Co-Extrusion Tooling Stripping Attachment

Striping has historically been used to add functionality, provide identification, and improve product aesthetics. For example, medical tubing with barium stripes are widely used for x-ray imaging. Working with multi-strand wire or cable configurations is easiest, and safest, when material is striped. And striped wire in consumer products have long been used to improve appearance, simplify assembly, or add functionality.

Today, co-extrusion striping has replaced most older and less efficient methods, and co-extrusion tooling is the technology of choice for most applications.
