|Description||In the modern world plastic is part of daily life, from the computer cabling that connects us to the internet, to the conduits and wiring that run through our homes and businesses, to the endless plastic parts on the consoles of our cars. Almost every type of plastic piece, conduit or piping begins as a flexible polyvinyl chloride compounders and is created using a mold.
Plastic specialists have the ability to vary the chemical properties of semi-rigid vinyl composition to create rigid PVC compounds that maintain their shape or flexible PVC that if often used for soft tubes or other bendable applications. The uses for plastic are varied and infinite and include home, business, and manufacturing items including:
Manufacturing - handles, grips, hoses, tubing, knobs, suction cups, grommets, parts
Automotive Parts - shifting knobs, gaskets for doors, window and sunroof seals, dashboard moldings, trim, wiring
Construction Industry - window stripping, window sealing, outside trimming pieces
Medical - tubes, flexible tubes, food IVs. Plastics found in the medical field use medical grade PVC compounds created to provide sanitary and safe environments.
Electrical - power supply cording, wiring harnesses, boots for battery terminals, shields
Cables & Wiring - refrigerator wires, communications cabling, automobile cabling and wiring
These industries can produce components without resorting to metals, glass, and other materials. This allows businesses create less heavy, less expensive products. Another benefit of vinyl blends is their resistance to corrosion.
Environmental concerns in recent years have led to the creation of chemical free flexible PVC compounds that are more appropriate for use in toys and plastic items that come in contact with food.
