Custom PVC Extrusion
Preferred Plastics, a leading extruder of high-quality custom thermoplastic parts, offers an extensive inventory of plastic materials, including PVC.
What is PVC?
PVC, or polyvinyl chloride, is a popular material for a wide range of plastic products. It is a durable material, exhibits chemical and biological resistance. While it is a rigid plastic, the addition of plasticizers results in a more flexible material. PVC is cheaper to manufacture than other thermoplastics, making it a cost-effective material to use in many applications.
PVC is typically used for applications in the automotive, construction, plumbing, marine, furniture, and RV, window & door, and farm & garden industries. Some of the custom PVC parts we manufacture at Preferred Plastics are:
- Window & door frames
- Wide range of flexibility
- Flame retardant
- Dimensional stability
- Low cost
PVC Plastic Extrusion
Composite windows, vinyl fencing, and freezer gaskets are all examples of the wide variety of products that are produced using the high-volume plastic extrusion manufacturing process.
Plastic extrusion is continuous and capable of high volume output, making it a more economical plastics manufacturing method than other processes. In addition, tooling costs are relatively low.
Plastic extrusion works particularly well for production of plastic parts that have consistent wall thicknesses, and for profiles that are wider and longer than those produced by other types of manufacturing. Plastic films, bags, piping, tubing, rods, weather stripping, and deck railing are just a few of the many products that are successfully and economically produced by plastic extrusion.
