Compounding

Extruded profiles manufactured at Vision Extrusions incorporate high quality proprietary vinyl compounds produced in-house using state-of-the-art fully automated blending technologies. Exclusive process control capabilities ensure ingredients are weighed and added within very precise and accurate tolerances to ultimately provide batch after batch consistency.

The Vision Extrusions compounding operation is equipped with bulk handling, mixing and storage systems able to produce over 350 million pounds of compound annually in a variety of formulations and a wide range of colours. Inherently, Vision production facilities can store more than 10 million lbs of raw materials and formulated compounds to guarantee customers responsive uninterrupted supply.

This high level of vertical integration in an entrepreneurial environment combined with a team of experienced scientists, a technologically advanced Maintenance group and operational personnel allows Vision the ability to formulate and efficiently manufacture vinyl compounds with a unique combination of desired properties.

Vision participates in many certification programs as an additional step towards ensuring product performance. Third party independent accredited laboratory testing programs and in-plant audits are an integral part of the Vision assurance initiatives. Many Vision compounds are certified under the American Architectural Manufactures Association (AAMA) Vinyl Extrusion Certification Program, Underwriters Laboratories Inc.
