PVC Type 1®

Vintec I® is a normal impact, corrosion-resistant material offering an excellent chemical resistance. (Type I Grade 1 Dark Gray PVC conforms to ASTM D1784, Class 12454-8.) Vintec I® is highly recommended for applications where the concentration of acids or alkalies are high, normal working temperatures are relatively low (140° F or below) and final installation area is not subject to excessive physical abuse.

Product Applications
Vintec I® corrosion resistant thermoplastics are engineered materials formulated to combine corrosion resistance, impact resistance, lightness, ease of fabrication and forming. Vintec I® reduces replacement costs by providing long life in harsh corrosive atmospheres.

Fabrication Characteristics

Thermoplastic preparation for assembly (welding or other fastening methods) is similar to metal fabrication procedures. Pieces are laid out, cut, machined and joined with the same tools, equipment and skills utilized in the metalworking trades.

However, there are special forming requirements for thermoplastics not encountered in metal work. Fabrication of thermoplastics includes a wide range of operations on sheet, rod, tube and special shapes to produce finished products.

Fabrication involves cutting, sawing, machining, forming, joining or fastening together for the completed object. Machining may include beveling, routing, grinding, turning, milling, drilling, tapping and threading. The degree of skill and the quality of preparatory work in layout and various machining operations on components for fit-up are very important in assuring accurate assembly and successful fabrication.

Once the different thermoplastic parts are formed into the proper shape, they may then have to be joined.

The type and method of assembly depend on the function of the finished structure. The several assembly techniques include the use of adhesive bonding, self-tapping screws, threaded insets, press fitting, cold heading, heat joined (hot-plate welding, hot-wire welding, induction heating, hot flaring, and spin welding) cementing and hot gas welding.

Each operation requires its own tools and equipment.
