Our Manufacturing Process

  • Stage 1 of 7
    The extrusion process begins by feeding pellets of PVC compound into the hopper and heating them until they reach a melted state.

  • Stage 2 of 7
    The PVC compound is forced through a die that defines the shape and thickness of the tube.

  • Stage 3 of 7
    The extruded tube is rapidly cooled in a bath of chilled water. The cool water temperature helps to improve clarity.

  • Stage 4 of 7
    Reinforced polyester twine is now added before encapsulating the tube again with a protective outer coating.

  • Stage 5 of 7
    Rollers pull the tube through the entire process and cut it into required lengths.

  • Stage 6 of 7
    As the tube runs off it is inspected for potential defects and coiled onto reels for packing.

  • Stage 7 of 7
    Finally each reel is measured to ensure the tube meets the required inner and outer diameters.
