Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is one of the most widely used plastics in the world, for this reason Bausano specialized also in PVC extruders. PVC extrusion is the process where a PVC material is forced through a die in order to create a fixed and shaped form or product.
PVC extrusion generally needs a Twin Screw extruder because of the harsh condition of PVC processing. The melt temperature of PVC is around 170-200°C. PVC is a thermoplastic made of 57% chlorine and 43% carbon. Polyvinyl chloride is obtained from the polymerisation of vinyl chloride monomer and is then added with other substances, such as stabilizers and lubricants, to give it specific physical and mechanical characteristics that improve its performance and are necessary for the many applications that can be extruded with the polymer and with Bausano extrusion lines.
PVC consumption is only lower than that of polyethylene and polypropylene, because of its many characteristics. PVC has become more utilized in the extrusion sector and in its applications because of its many advantages respect to wood, metal and other materials.
