Exposure to the elements and UV rays can weaken PVC physical properties over time, resulting in fading, discoloration and degradation. These damaging effects can be prevented by utilizing weather resistant PVC materials for the manufacturing of outdoor goods such as patio furniture, gazebos, fencing, deck railings, and other outdoor products.
The physical properties of PVC make it a versatile material that mixes well with other substances to create a desired material with properties such as flexibility, impact resistance and weather resistance. To create weather resistant PVC, acrylic-based impact modifiers are added during the manufacturing process along with pigments and colorants that provide additional protection from sunlight and other elements.
One pigment that is commonly used to alter PVC physical properties is Titanium Dioxide, which helps reflect natural light and absorb UV rays to protect the PVC. Additional stabilizers or brighteners may also be added during the extrusion process to increase UV resistance by further protecting against degradation and UV damage. Due to its versatile physical properties, PVC provides the durability and longevity needed for a wide range of plastic material applications.
We Provide Durable, Weather-resistant PVC
Crescent Plastics offers extruded PVC tubing that is specially formulated to be weather- and impact-resistant for longevity. PVC is known for its durability and ability to maintain its performance over a long period of time. In addition to weather resistance, PVC is resistant to almost all inorganic chemicals and is a highly stable product that is impact resistant, fire-retarding, and resists microbial growth.
Our weather resistant PVC materials are versatile and able to accept a range of surface treatments to further customize your extruded tubing. Its function is further improved with the addition of additives and the combined factors make it an ideal material choice for outdoor tubing applications. We offer plastic pipe extruding for PVC materials and can add customized characteristics to your tubing such as custom colors and printing; custom shapes, lengths and diameters are also available for our weather resistant PVC.
We Provide Weather-Resistant PVC Tubing for Any Application
Weather-Resistant TPO (Thermoplastic Olefins) materials for Industrial and Transportation
TPO is an excellent material for cold temperature impact (down to -40° F), low thermal expansion and has an optimum balance of stiffness and flexibility. This weather resistant material is great for tough applications were your product needs to be rugged.
Acrylic is an excellent material with outstanding strength, stiffness, and optical clarity. Acrylic has superior weathering properties and is used in outdoor signage for its clarity, brilliance, and transparency.
