Excalibur Extrusion Specializes in:
Custom Plastic Extrusion - The process of making a plastic extrusion to
unique customer specifications. Once the specifications are established
the process starts with blending the proper plastic materials, heating
that blend of plastic and extruding it through a die and cooled after
former to achieve the desired size. It is then cut to length and
packaged to customer specifications.
PVC or Polyvinyl Chloride
- A tough commodity plastic, PVC can be made weather stable is easy to form, and machine. It can withstand significant pressure and can be joined by solvent cement therefore it is the material of choice for water pipe. It is usually white in color; however it can be made in any color including clear.
- Polyvinyl Chloride made
without plasticizer and therefore not flexible. As such it supports
itself across spans of three feet or more and withstands hundreds of
pounds of pressure. It will not naturally lie in a coil.
- A lightweight high impact plastic. It is usually black in color, however it can be made in any color. It is more heat stable than PVC. Applications include pipe, machine guards, and equipment cases.
- or High Density Polyethylene - An economical, light, lower strength soft material. It is smooth and yields to the touch. Typical applications include cores, pump housings, and drip tubing. High density polyethylene (HDPE) has been used for municipal and industrial water applications for almost 50 years. HDPE's heat-fused joints create a leak free, self restraint, monolithic pipe structure that allows the pipe to be pulled from one area to another with minimum disruption to traffic or the environment; the fused joint will also eliminate infiltration into the pipe and exfiltration into the environment. HDPE has other benefits which include chemical, abrasion, fatigue, seismic and corrosion resistance.
