Aurora Plastics brands cellular PVC foam and PVC capstock product lines

Article-Aurora Plastics brands cellular PVC foam and PVC capstock product lines

Aurora Plastics Inc. (Streetsboro, OH), a manufacturer of high-quality PVC compounds, announced brand names for two of its major product lines: AuroraLite PCV cellular foam and AuroraShield PVC/acrylic capstock.

The AuroraLite rigid PVC cellular foam is available in a density range of 0.35 to 0.80, reportedly one of the lowest in the industry. These materials are available in both free-foam and Celuka-based formulations. The end result is a lightweight, yet durable profile suited for an array of interior or exterior applications including decking, railings, garage and wall trim, arbors and pergolas, as well as for custom use, according to the company.

Aurora PlasticsThe AuroraShield line includes PVC/acrylic capstock compounds that provide long-term weatherability and resistance to water whitening, especially in darker colors. From a manufacturing perspective, these products process with the ease of PVC but provide the weatherability of acrylic, explained Aurora. It gets applied thinner, which results in significant bottom-line benefits for Aurora's customers.

"In order to position our ever-growing exterior weatherable capstock and rigid cellular PVC foam products, we felt that establishing product line brand names would further build awareness and enhance customer trust in Aurora Plastics," said Matthew Kuwatch, Vice President, Marketing and Business Development.

Aurora Plastics has two of the newest ISO 9001:2008–certified production facilities in the industry and an ongoing commitment to investing in new material technology platforms. "Our unparalleled seven-day lead time to shipment means that customers can save costs by maintaining lower inventory levels yet still meet tight order schedules," Kuwatch added.
