To increase the performance characteristics of PVC, Only the most Quality extrusion companies will add seven different micro-ingredients to the PVC blend. These seven ingredients, combined with superior methods of proper blending, differentiate the best compounds from many others being extruded in the vinyl industry today.
These extremely important micro-ingredients address specific needs of a high quality, durable, vinyl railing or vinyl fence system. Heat Stabilizers minimize the effect of heat (solar radiation) on the vinyl fence or railing. Impact modifiers will strengthen the PVC to create a product that will stand up to the toughest weather conditions. A heavy concentration of UV Stabilizers resist the fading of vinyl fence and railing materials caused by the sun's ultraviolet light exposure.
Being the most expensive ingredients in the making of a high quality vinyl fence and railing systems is these extremely important micro-ingredients. Titanium Dioxide also known as (TiO2) imparts a brilliant white color to the vinyl and helps to reflect the sun's harmful rays from the finished surface of your vinyl fencing, vinyl railing or deck material. Calcium Carbonates often referred to as a impact modifier or filler. This replaces some of the PVC to increase the vinyl's high impact levels and to increase the very important tensile strength to achieve greater impact from outdoor lawn equipment, sports balls and kids play equipment. This formulation results in superior vinyl fencing products that will not rot, chip, corrode, peel, or blister.
