PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is one of the most common plastics, and PVC extrusions can be found in practically limitless consumer and industrial applications. Extrusion is the best way to manufacture PVC components. PVC profile extrusion is efficient and facilitates continuous production, reducing lead times and costs.
As an industry-leading custom profile extruder, Northland Plastics has the capability to manufacture virtually any extruded PVC profile your project requires, including design assistance and fabrication services. Our engineering and design team will work with you to create a custom PVC extrusion that meets your needs cost-effectively.
PVC Extrusion Profiles
We can manufacture PVC extruded profiles customized to the specifications of your application. Options include (but are not limited to):
- Edging (trim)
- Angle covers
Color: Choose from our existing palette of colors, or we can match and manage any custom PVC color you need.
Shape: We supply all standard PVC extrusion profiles and specialize in custom configurations.
Length: We can produce rigid PVC profiles from .25” to 30’ or longer.
Thickness: We can produce rigid and flexible PVC profiles from .015” to .25” or thicker.
Rigid PVC Extrusions
Rigid PVC (aka UPVC – unplasticized polyvinyl chloride) is the most widely used form of PVC. Rigid PVC is durable, lightweight, weather-resistant, and affordable. Rigid PVC extrusions can be easily bonded (using solvents or adhesives) and welded (using thermoplastic welding equipment).
Common applications of rigid PVC extrusions include the automotive, marine, agriculture and construction industries (especially for windows). UPVC is also frequently used for valves and piping systems.
Flexible PVC Extrusions
Flexible PVC is made soft and supple by adding plasticizers such as phthalates. Flexible PVC extrusions are often used to make wiring insulation, flooring, hoses, medical tubing and much more. Flexible PVC is corrosion and weather resistant, though it can stiffen in cold temperatures.
Like rigid PVC, flexible PVC is a versatile and low-cost material. Northland Plastics manufactures custom rigid and flexible PVC profiles for a wide range of projects, supported by diverse fabrication capabilities including assembly, bonding, and packaging.
