Economical and tough, Rigid PVC, or RPVC, is inherently flame retardant and resistant to most chemicals. Rigid PVC can be offered in clear, opaque, weather resistant, high tensile and impact resistant formulations that are easily machined. As the third most commonly produced plastic polymer, RPVC is often used in a construction setting and in applications such as doors and windows as a profile. It is also used in non-food packaging, ID cards and other common applications.
Offered in a wide range from rubbery soft to semi-rigid, Flexible PVC is widely used for plastic profile extrusions because of its resistance to abrasion and ability to insulate. Flexible PVC is commonly used for weather stripping, impact resistant bumpers, flexible tubing, and cushioning devices. Because of its physical properties, flexible PVC is often used in place of rubber as it can be a more reliable and sometimes more cost effective option.
Green RoHS Vinyl™
Green RoHS Vinyl™ is a semi-rigid compound with significantly reduced VOCs and compliant with EU RoHS and REACH Vinyl standards for reduction of hazardous substances. The polymer is 57% derived from sea water and uses organically renewable plasticizers and stabilizers. Green RoHS™ Vinyl does not contain phthalate plasticizers and is both 100% recyclable and helps to reduce your carbon footprint.
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS)
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene is a rigid, versatile, and high-impact plastic with good chemical resistance to most non-aromatic compounds. It is used primarily in plastic profile extrusion applications where outdoor exposure is not required. With its two main properties being impact resistance and overall toughness of the material, it is no wonder that it is used in so many applications such as: golf club heads, automotive bumper bars, medical devices for blood access, canoes, carrying cases, kitchen appliances, electronic enclosures and so many more. ABS has a satin to high gloss finish and is available in standard or custom colors. The cost of ABS is mid-point between engineering and commodity grades.
High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS)
High Impact Polystyrene is a rigid, economical, light-weight plastic which is used for rigid plastic profile extrusions and plastic tubing extrusions. High Impact Polystyrene typically has a flat finish and is available in natural (translucent white), standard, and custom colors. This low cost material is incredibly easy to fabricate and machine, that is can be FDA compliant and has excellent qualities. Because of its dimensional stability it is often used for pre-production prototypes, and in low strength structural components.
Polyethylene ranges from flexible (LDPE) to semi-rigid (HDPE). A very economical material, Polyethylene is good for plastic profile extrusion applications requiring low surface resistance. It is available in both FDA and industrial grades. Polyethylene also has very good chemical resistance and is available in natural (translucent white), standard, and custom colors. Because of these properties it is commonly found in packaging from plastic bags to bottles and it boasts the reputation of being the most common plastic in the world.
Polypropylene is a semi-rigid, light weight, economical plastic with excellent chemical resistance and a fairly high service temperature. Polypropylene is available in natural (translucent white), standard, and custom colors. It is used in a number of applications such as packaging and labeling, stationary, laboratory equipment, automotive components, textiles, and many more.
Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE)
Thermoplastic Elastomers are a unique class of engineering materials combining the look, feel, and elasticity of conventional thermoset rubber with the processing efficiency of plastics. Because TPEs are thermoplastics, their melt-processability makes them very suitable for the custom profile extrusion process. As Elastomers, TPEs exhibit true elasticity. The available range of grades encompasses rubber-like properties and offers a wide range of durometer, low compression set, and high elongation. Thermoplastic Elastomers can also be reclaimed and recycled.
