Customer Questions

VEKA produces rigid dry-blend (powder) virgin PVC-U compound in shades of white, cream and natural; the natural material can be coloured by adding masterbatch on the extrusion line; if customers are not familiar with this technology then we can provide guidance.

VEKA will typically supply a 22-bag load with 1 bag being approximately 1 metric tonne, and this can be delivered on transport arranged by VEKA. A full 22-bag load can comprise a mix of different formulations, and smaller loads can be produced for collection by the customer. Compound is typically made to order with a 3-4 working day lead-time, however we can also hold stock of customer specific formulations by prior agreement.

Our dedicated compound mixing plant in Burnley produces virgin PVC-U material only, however our subsidiary – VEKA Recycling based in Wellingborough – can supply recycled PVC-U pellets in white and grey: https://www.veka-compounds.uk/

Our in-house laboratory can formulate material to the customers specified performance level, including processing temperatures, impact resistance and UV stability, supported by extensive inbound and outbound materials testing, as well as complete batch traceability.

VEKA mixes all PVC-U compound formulations in our dedicated multi-component mixing plant located on our main UK site in Burnley, Lancashire.

No! In the UK VEKA has extrudes bespoke profiles for many customers across a wide range of product types and markets, and has done so for many years; VEKA continues to invest in developing and growing this important aspect of our UK business, we just don’t shout about it as maintaining customer confidentiality is paramount.

VEKA can extrude products in whatever colour is required; we use masterbatch technology which means that with the exception of whites and creams, we add colour pigment on the extrusion line, eliminating any risk of contamination in the compound mixing process and enabling us to do shorter runs. VEKA UK also has a lamination plant on  our Burnley site enabling us to laminate product with colour foils from VEKA’s own SPECTRAL range, as well as brands such as Renolit and HornSchuch.

VEKA can extrude products from rigid PVC-U in either 100% virgin form, or co-extruded using a mixture of recycled material – usually for the base or core – In combination with a UV-stable virgin skin. We can also extrude material from 100% recycled PVC-U where weatherability is not required. In addition, we can co-extrude gasket seals on the extrusion line.
