How does the quality of Regenex extrusions compare to the
extrusions that I purchase from my primary extrusion supplier?
utilizes state of the art tooling and special screw technology
to provide extrusions that are of exceptional quality, despite
being run from recycled vinyl. We are very aware that our
customers may scrutinize our extrusions extra carefully,
and our continued existence depends upon shipping them parts
that are indistinguishable from virgin vinyl.
Will your accessory extrusions be an exact color match with
the frame and sash extrusions provided by my existing supplier?
A.) Because you are providing
the raw material for your accessory extrusions, the color
will be an exact match. Many primary extruders currently contract
out the production of accessory extrusions to other custom
extrusion companies. Not only do they lose control of the
quality and have to charge an additional mark-up, but the
color may not be an exact match.
Are your extrusions as weatherable as those made from virgin
A.) The ingredients that affect
weatherability and UV resistance are not affected by the extrusion
process. Extrusions that are made from recycled vinyl are
every bit as weatherable as those made from virgin vinyl.
Ductility, or impact resistance, may actually be enhanced
by the fact that recycled vinyl must be extruded at a higher
temperature to overcome the previous heat history. This activates
the impact modifiers to a greater extent.
4. Q.) My primary extruder gives
me free delivery if I buy in truckload quantities. If I purchase
accessory extrusions from Regenex, won't my savings be eaten
up in higher freight costs?
handles all freight charges on all regularly scheduled deliveries,
so you will receive free delivery even on small orders.
We typically utilize our own truck to deliver your extrusions
and pick up your vinyl scrap. Most of our customers are
on a regular delivery / pick-up schedule, so you can have
confidence in knowing when your material will arrive, and
when your vinyl scrap will be removed.
Can Regenex accept scrap with
weatherstrip attached, or scrap that is capstocked, laminated,
or foam-filled for recycling?
A.) All of this vinyl scrap is
suitable for recycling, and should not be thrown away. Regenex
technology will remove better than 99 percent of the non-vinyl
contaminants, yielding a regrind that is very suitable for
extrusion into heavier walled parts such as pipe, fencing,
and decking. Regenex does not use this lower grade regrind
to produce your window accessory parts, however.
6. Q.) How are Regenex
will package your extrusions to your specifications. We
offer boxes, plastic-wrapped, masterpacks, and racks, in
lengths from a few inches (sash stop cut to length in line)
to 21 feet. We will accommodate any specialty packaging
Q.) Our company does not have a lot of storage space for
vinyl scrap. Do I need to accumulate a truckload of scrap
before Regenex will pick it
tries to group window fabricators in a region to provide
more frequent service. We typically will be able to pick
up as few as 12-15 gaylords of scrap at a time.
