Vinyl Extrusion 

Vinyl Extrusion is a manufacturing process using pressure and heat to push polyvinyl chloride through a die profile to form a linear product. The vinyl extrusion process is used extensively in the manufacturing of windows, doors, trim, fence rails, posts and columns for the building industry. It is also used in the manufacturing of many consumer products such as marine products, orthopedic supplies and appliance products. It is also the basis of the PVC tubing industry, used for plumbing. The vinyl extrusion process allows the manufacturer to cost-effectively produce large quantities of their product.
