Our extrusions are manufactured from a variety of plastics that deliver a wide range of performance. For a complete listing, click here.
Tooling costs are determined by several factors including:
Each of these factors is taken into consideration, with the end goal of producing the least expensive tooling to meet the end needs.
Our typical new tooling lead time is two to four weeks after we have an approved production drawing. Lead times vary based on our Finite Forward scheduling system. Our receipt of your purchase order begins the scheduling process.
Yes, all tooling is designed and manufactured by Sandee.
The dynamics of custom manufacturing often result in quick changes to tooling, production and fabrication schedules. Forces beyond anyone's control may impact the availability and cost of materials used in production and delivery of final product. Our receipt of your purchase order begins the scheduling process. Prices, confirmed upon placement of order, and shipping dates, based upon our Finite Forward scheduling software, determine lead times.
Our typical minimum is 1,000 linear feet of any extrusion. Of course, there are always exceptions to the rule.
We can manufacture your product in any color imaginable. We can produce a more accurate quote if we can reference a Pantone® color number. If no Pantone® number is available, anything can be custom color matched.
It typically takes ten working days to get a color chip to you for approval, and ten additional working days to produce the custom color concentrate from the approved color chip.

The extrudable profile is calculated by measuring its developed width. A flat sheet four inches wide has a developed width of four inches. A four-inch flat sheet with a two-inch leg bisecting it at 90 degrees vertically has a developed width of six inches. A four-inch flat sheet with two-inch legs top and bottom has a developed width of eight inches, and so on. The maximum Sandee developed width for extruded profiles is 36 inches.
While our typical cut lengths fall into the 24” to 96” range, we have run rigid profiles over 24 feet long. Flex profiles can be coiled or spooled to desired length
Yes, Sandee maintains a wide selection of standard tools for typical shapes and materials, which provide our customers with significant cost savings. For more information, click here.
Our standard profiles, including standard "C"-channels, "F"-channels, "H"-channels, "J"-channels, "L"-channels, and "U"-channels, as well as standard tube profiles and coextruded chutes, offer an economical and efficient solution to hundreds of design challenges.
Our in-line fabrication processes include punching, drilling, notching, miter cutting, routing, magnetic stripping, sonic welding, in-line tapes, in-line printing, protective films, ant-static and many other processes.
Our secondary operations include assembly, collating, kitting, custom packaging, logistics, shipping and many other processes.
