HDC for PVC Machining Service
Polyvinyl chloride or PVC is a rigid thermoplastic that is arguably the most used thermoplastic polymer around the world. Since PVC offers great strength, rigidity, and resistance to chemical/thermal changes, it has multiple applications in various industries. The major applications for PVC machining include used for manufacturing of pipes, fittings, insulation sheets, medical instruments, sports equipment, electrical components, etc. Here is why you should choose HDC for PVC machining.
Why Choose Us for PVC Machining Services
Available PVC Materials for Machining:
PVC has a tensile strength of 45 MPa at yield. The water absorption of PVC is 0.2 % which makes it an ideal application for places where water ingress is very high. PVC has a service temperature between 60 °C to 70 °C. However, these properties tend to change over the different grades of PVC. Here are the main grades of PVC available in the market:
This PVC is a highly chemical resistant grade of PVC that conforms to the ASTM D 1784-81 Class 12454 B, Type 1, Grade 1. Type 1 PVC has multiple applications ranging from milling, machining PVC parts, ventilation equipment, etc.
The type II PVC conforms to the ASTM D-1784-81, Class 15344-D, Type II. This type of PVC can be used in cold rolling, machining, and other forms of development.
PVC 300 Grade
This grade is covered with C-300 static dissipative coating. It means that this grade of PVC is ideal for manufacturing of PVC machining products that can control static electricity. It is very apt to manufacture windows, machine bases, covers, cabinets, etc. from this grade of PVC.
PVC 350 Grade
This category of PVC is ideal to contain the spread of fires. Furthermore, the material shows amazing chemical skills and does not react to acids or alkalis.
Food Grade PVC
The food-graded PVC tubing makes use of non-oxidizing food-grade plastic that meets the FDA standards for food-grade PVCs.
Is PVC machining feasible and easy to carry out?
Yes. It is possible to machine PVC to close tolerances. Since PVC has high strength to weight it is ideal for machining applications. Furthermore, we can also use to the PVC on the CNC Swiss Machines and CNC Turning Tools. This gives higher flexibility to make PVC machined parts as per the requirements of our clients.
How to select the right grade of PVC?
When dealing with HDC, you will not have to worry about the material to choose for your product. We will do this for you and let you know why we have chosen the material that we did. So, your PVC machined parts will be manufactured with the best available PVC category.
Is PVC machining economical?
PVC is one of the most economical materials that you can choose for machining. However, it is interesting to know that PVC machining is one of the most economical options when compared with other machinable plastics.
Do we get material certification along with the PVC products?
Yes. We ensure that the parts we deliver come with valid material certification. Furthermore, if you need any specific certification that is required for any foreign country’s regulatory or standard requirements then we can provide those certificates too. However, you will have to confirm with our team to check for the specific standard that you need.
Does UHMW give good results for machining?
UHMW is a wonderful option for machining. The plastic is hard, with slippery surface that provides smooth movement of machining tools over the surface without creating much friction. UHMW offers great impact resistance and therefore is ideal for machining.
What are the machining options for UHMW-PE?
There are multiple machining options available for UHMW. These machining options include milling, turning, drilling, stamping, etc. All these options can be carried out through the appropriate CNC machines that provide a high level of precision and accurate products.
What are the main applications of CNC Machined UHMW parts?
UHMW-PE machined parts have multiple applications in various industries. These applications include the manufacturing of food processing parts, conveyor belts/guides, chemical tank parts, chute linings, etc.
Does PMMA (Acrylic) give good results for machining?
Yes. Acrylic offers some great features that make it ideal for machining. These features include great impact resistance, high tensile strength, accuracy, repeatability, lower friction, and high thermal resistance. However, when selecting the right grade for the application, certain features of the PMMA have to be considered.
What are the main applications of CNC Machined PMMA (Acrylic) parts?
A common application of PMMA machined parts includes phone booths, windows, incubator covers, instrument panels, advertisement boards, and covers, surgical instruments, boxes, etc.
Will HDC provide surface finish services for PMMA machined parts?
Yes. We at HDC provide aesthetic and cosmetic effects to the finished Acrylic machined parts to make them more appealing and attractive for the observers. Furthermore, we also offer different color shades for the finished parts as per the requirements of our clients. You can discuss the aesthetics and colors of the final product with our team in detail.
Is there an option for custom labeling PVC machined products?
Yes. We do provide part labeling services. However, you will need to confirm with our team first regarding the format and font you need to use.
