Application of UPVC profiles

19 Oct, 2023

UPVC profile is a hard material made of polyvinyl chloride resin as raw material and added with additives such as plasticizers and stabilizers. It has the characteristics of light weight, easy processing, corrosion resistance, good insulation performance and low price. It is widely used in construction, automobile, shipbuilding, chemical industry and other fields.
UPVC profiles can be processed into various shapes and specifications according to usage requirements, such as pipes, plates, profiles, etc. In the construction field, UPVC profiles can be used to make doors, windows, guardrails, pipes, etc.; in the automotive field, they can be used to make wheel covers, bumpers, grilles, etc.; in the shipbuilding field, they can be used to make hull shells, cabins, etc.
There are many processing methods for UPVC profiles, including extrusion, injection molding, blow molding, etc. Among them, extrusion is the most widely used processing method, which can produce profiles and pipes of various shapes and specifications. During the extrusion process, the mixed and plasticized raw materials are extruded through the die opening under the push of the screw, and are then cooled, shaped, and cut into shape.
Although UPVC profiles have certain advantages, they also have some disadvantages, such as easy aging and low strength. During use, ultraviolet radiation and high-temperature baking need to be avoided to prevent accelerated aging. At the same time, since UPVC profiles have a certain hardness, attention needs to be paid to selecting appropriate processing equipment and parameters during processing to avoid material defects.
In short, UPVC profile is a common hard material with a wide range of applications and excellent performance characteristics. During use, you need to pay attention to its performance characteristics and usage requirements to give full play to its advantages and extend its service life.
