Fruth Capabilities

Technological Efficiencies

Family owned and American made, our extensive lineup of capabilities all leverage the Fruth 360TM process. Our vertically integrated manufacturing process allows us to manage every step of production, from extrusion to conversion to customization, in-house— ensure the highest quality at every stage of production and saving clients time, budget and peace of mind. 

 

Fruth is the West Coast's premier vertically integrated plastic manufacturing facility.

Extrusion

Fruth specializes in custom single wound sheeting, centerfold sheeting and tubing plastic extrusion. We produce film from 0.5” to 82” wide and can run 1.5mil (.0015) to 15 mil (.015). Roll length is determined by width, thickness and weight.

 

We extrude LDPE, LLDPE, medium to high density polyethylene. Additionally, our diverse selection of additives allows us to produce a wide variety of polyethylene with specific protective barriers including:

  • Ethylene Vinyl Acetate - EVA

  • Ultra Violet Blocking - UVI

  • Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors - VCI

  • Anti-Static

  • Black Conductive

  • Green Nuclear

  • Mono-extruded nylon film and virgin/barefoot film for cleanroom use.

 

Conversion

Our state-of-the-art-technology combined with decades of expertise give us the unique ability to engineer, manufacture and convert a wide variety of high-quality LDPE products for our customers. We offer LDPE products in 1-10 MIL thickness and in an extensive range of colors. Our extruded blow film and heat sealable materials can be converted into custom small or large bags. They can also be ordered as standard tubing or sheeting rolls from 1/2″ to 82″ wide.
