PVC is just one of the many common and advanced thermoplastics resins that HPE is capable of extruding.Others include HDPE, polycarbonate and polypropylene; and innovative engineering resins, such as ABS/PVC alloys and difficult-to-run elastomers, such as Santoprene and nylon. We can also combine different resins according to your needs.

HPE’s machines’ single screw units range from 3/4″ to 2 1/2″ which permits extrusions of a wide range of sizes and shapes, including profiles ranging in size from 1/16″ to  3″ pipe or 5″ profile with a virtually unlimited length. PVC extrusions are available in standard or custom colors in a full spectrum of choices.

About PVC

PVC is a synthetic polymer. Its  low cost, biological and chemical resistance, workability and versatility have made it the material of choice for a wide variety of applications. Among the many industries that utilize pvc extrusions are aerospace, automotive, computer accessories, packaging and containers, door and window, electronics, lighting, medical, mobile homes and recreational vehicle, OEM machinery and equipment, office partitions, pet supplies, refrigeration, commercial construction interior decoration, agriculture products, water purification, signage and display products, playground equipment and safety equipment.

Rigid PVC Plastic Profile Extrusion

In its rigid form, pvc extrusions are known for their strong resistance  to chemicals, sunlight, and oxidation from water—major reasons why pvc has virtually replaced cast iron for sewer pipes, plumbing and other pipe applications. With the addition of impact modifiers and stabilizers, pvc has also become a popular material for windows and door frames.

Flexible PVC Plastic Extrusion

Flexible PVC Plastic Extrusion

PVC can be made softer and more flexible by adding plasticizers, such as phthalates. In this form—known as    flexible pvc—it is used in clothing and upholstery, electrical wire insulation, inflatable products and others applications in which it often replaces rubber.
