Proprietary Process System Provides Superior Quality For Extruded Flexible PVC

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

TMI, LLC has developed a new proprietary process control system for its flexible PVC extrusion process. This new system ensures complete dimensional uniformity and tension throughout the bulk PVC rolls produced.

The new process eliminates “racetracking” (i.e., the tendency of the material to curve slightly to one side when unwound), lay-flat issues, width and gage variations and uneven shrinkage, resulting in an entirely uniform product.

“It takes the art out of the plastics process and makes it more of a science,” Bill Habeck, General Manager of TMI’s PVC extrusion facility, said. “Prior to the new control, operators would have to manually adjust the line to maintain consistency on a product-to-product basis. This takes the guesswork out,” Habeck said.

TMI extrudes a wide variety of flexible PVC strip, sheet and panel ranging in gage from .030” up to .500”. Additional information on TMI’s extrusion capabilities is available by calling 1.800.888.9750.
