Shutting out the Elements
PVC is hands-down the most frequently used material for the manufacture of window frames. Available in a range of colors and stylistic treatments, they are resistant to UV rays and poor weather conditions and are virtually maintenance free. On a more practical lever, they are also easy to fit and maintain and provide excellent heat insulation.
PVC frames can be welded, glued or mechanically assembled. PVC resins also have high intrinsic thermal stability, improved impact properties (by using impact modifiers and/or PVC resins from the emulsion process), reduced sensitivity to moisture and flame-retardancy, and are very easy for gelling and processing.
Plasticized PVC is used to manufacture window seals. The product’s flexibility means that a variety of seals of different strengths can be produced, all offering excellent weatherproof qualities.
Window seals are manufactured by extruding or co-extruding of profiles or over-molded injection parts
