FOOTWARE

SOLUTIONS FOR THE FOOTWEAR INDUSTRY

  • Box toe puffs and heel counters
  • Specialty films used as adhesive tie layers, structural parts, and external support or wear-resistant pieces
  • Products extruded from the broadest range of polymers, including TPU, specialty polyamides, functionalized olefins and many others

Specialty films and polymers

Bixby has been supplying box toe puffs and heel counters to the footwear industry for over 140 years.  It is the area in which the company first got its feet wet. Back then the materials Bixby worked with were not films and polymers, they were cut fiberboard, felt components and tacks.

But as times changed, so did Bixby. Today, the company develops and offers products that are in step with the needs of the industry.  Whether it is lighter weight, lower cost or improved flex performance, Bixby engineers work with customers to design a custom plastic extrusion solution that meets the ever-changing demands of the shoe industry.

In addition to providing both box toe puffs and heel counters, Bixby can supply specialty films that can be used as adhesive tie layers, structural parts, and external support or wear-resistant pieces. Moreover, the company extrudes the broadest range of polymers in the industry, handling products such as TPU, specialty polyamides, functionalized olefins and many other custom plastic extrusions.
