How is PVC/Vinyl made?


PVC/Vinyl powder (Resin) is blended, with all the required ingredients, into a formulation that is called compound. Compound is fed into an extruder, with the proper amount of heat, pressure and mixing via screws in the extruder, and the compound becomes malleable vinyl. Malleable vinyl is then fed through a die in the shape of the finished profile and water is used to cool the vinyl into it's final rigid state.
