Rigid Plastic Extrusion Profiles (UPVC)

Rigid PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride or UPVC) can be used for thermoplastic extrusion and is supplied in a variety of colours and strengths. Unplasticised PVC is one of the stiffest polymers at ambient temperatures and is very durable. It is extremely versatile and can be used for UPVC profiles for internal and external applications.

Close attention to detail during the design phase of the rigid plastic extrusion profiles can ensure a reliable supply of cost-effective, good quality UPVC plastic profiles. The choice of thermoplastic material used for the extrusion profile will depend on its application and specification requirement, such as thermal, UV and chemical resistance, flame retardancy, smell, and impact strength. We will be happy to help with advice on the suitability of materials.

D W Plastics can manufacture rigid plastic extrusion profiles and UPVC extrusions from 5mm to 500mm width.

COVID-19 Update

During these uncertain times caused by the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we would just like to inform you that we have taken the decision to keep our operations open for as long as possible to continue to supply our customers, some of which are key essential suppliers to the NHS and pharmaceutical sectors.

The welfare of our workforce and the wider community is extremely important to us, so we have instigated additional measures to restrict potential exposure to and mitigate the spread of the virus. As many of our employees as possible are now working from home, and we are following Government advice and Public Health Guidelines with respect to safe working practices by increasing cleaning regimes within our facilities and implementing social distancing rules for our manufacturing operations.

We will constantly review the situation based on UK Government advice over the coming weeks and will keep you informed as things change.
