Polyvinyl Chloride - PVC Injection Molding
Polyvinyl chloride, better known as PVC, is a very common thermoplastic material. It is known for its durability and excellent flame, chemical, and abrasion resistance. PVC exhibits good dimensional stability, and high resistance to weathering and impact, as well as good dielectric properties. Tensile strength is roughly 6,500 psi.
PVC thermoplastics are available in range of durometers, from soft and flexible to hard and rigid, which makes the material a good choice for a wide range of applications. All PVC types/grades exhibit excellent dimensional stability, making them ideal for injection molding.
Thermoplastic Alternatives to PVC Injection Molding
Because of the corrosive nature of PVC, we choose not to do injection molding utilizing PVC. We recommend using TPE and TPU elastomers which offer the similar properties.
