Flexible Polyvinyl Chloride (FPVC) can used in place of rubber and metal in many instances, and is very popular in the construction and medical markets, as well as many others. FPVC is made flexible through the addition of Plasticizers in the manufacturing process.
FPVC is insoluble in alcohol, and in general has very good chemical resistance in relation to other thermoplastic materials. As a result, FPVC is used frequently for storage containers, tubes, and pipes.
We can extrude complex FPVC profiles up to 24" and tubing/piping ranging from .020" to 10" OD. (Outer diameter)
