Find the company Prodex in the dossier Plasturgie/Matériaux composites /élastomères of the magazine l’Usine Nouvelle of 5 March 2021.

“Our strength is the manufacture of custom extrusion tools in-house, insists Cyril Mérand, general manager of Prodex. Thus, from a drawing and/or customer specifications, our tooling specialists are able to produce a new die and prototypes in less than 10 days and from 300 €”.


The complete control of the chain gives Prodex a very high reactivity. With its CAD software, its fully integrated workshop for small and medium-sized production runs and its numerically controlled machines, the Chartres-based company is a recognised partner of design offices for producing profiles in different colours, densities or materials; the profile can also be co-extruded to offer multi-hardness or multi-coloured joints.

The finishing workshop can drill, glue, cut and weld into frames or rings.


Prodex advises its customers on the choice of materials adapted to their needs and constraints. Prodene materials comply with food standards (CE, FDA…), fire-smoke standards (EN 45545, UL 94, EN 13501), Atex, etc.

This elastomer specialist also sells some 500 standard profiles from stock via, its e-commerce site.
