Rigid PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride or UPVC) can be used for thermoplastic extrusion and is supplied in a variety of colours and strengths. Unplasticised PVC 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 extrusion profile can ensure a reliable supply of cost-effective, good quality 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 extrusions from 5mm to 500mm width.
