Custom Compounding and Coloring
Our roots extend back over 60 years to the company that invented PVC, TPE and dual extrusion processing. As a result, we can write custom compound recipes and custom mix flexible PVC and TPE compounds to meet your specifications.
A custom compound recipe utilizes a base resin or polymer as the foundation, and then a mix of different resins, additives, and tints is added to create unique and desirable characteristics in the final product.
The ability to properly mix these ingredients into a unique recipe, and to understand how they will bond during the extrusion process, takes tremendous knowledge and experience. Because we have this capability in-house, we are able to maintain control of all aspects of your job, providing you with added accountability and reduced cycle times for your projects.
Characteristics Impacted by the Compound Recipe
- Hardness / Flexibility
- Fire Resistance
- Electrical Conductivity
- UV Stability
- Temperature Stability
