Presco Controls the Three Drivers of Manufacturing Vinyl Film: Tooling, Process and Formulation

An American-proud company, Presco compounds and extrudes vinyl film in our Sherman, Texas manufacturing facility. Controlling the full process in-house allows Presco to provide customers with highly engineered films which can improve the physical characteristics in products for numerous industries such as military, mining, floor covering and medical. This full process control means we can provide our customers with extruded vinyl film featuring a wide scale of capabilities, whether it be custom formulation, printing, embossing, slitting or extrusion coating, and in gauges ranging from 1.65mil to 26mil and roll widths up to 94″ wide.

With the addition of Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) film extrusion to Presco’s capabilities in 2017, Presco now offers a formulation which doesn’t contain plasticizers, making it a suitable alternative to PVC. Presco’s EVA thickness capabilities range between 6mil and 18mil with widths up to 65″, performs well in RF and heat-sealing converting processes with excellent bond strengths, and is suitable for applications where increased toughness, cold crack resistance, and yield are preferred.

EVA VS. PVC: There’s No Wrong Answer

A superior, cost-effective, high-quality product for a wide range of business applications, EVA marks the first polyvinyl chloride-free manufacturing capability for Presco’s Engineered Film Division. Explore the differences between EVA and PVC in this useful infographic to help determine which is a better fit for your business application—there’s no wrong answer!
