Is all Vinyl the Same?

 

The word “vinyl” has morphed into a universal term like Kleenex, but not all vinyl is truly the same. Take REHAU’s proprietary uPVC (unplasticized polyvinyl chloride), for example. Our vinyl is different—it’s mixed and made in-house rather than purchased ready-made from outside vendors, ensuring the highest quality because we only use the best raw materials, and more of them too. This material is used to form the framing material of REHAU windows and doors, and is the key component for delivering durability and energy efficiency.

 

Windows and doors made with REHAU uPVC…

  • have better THERMAL PERFORMANCE—Keeping the heat or cold out of your house so you can stay comfortable all year round
  • are ECO-FRIENDLY—REHAU’s PVC can be recycled up to 7x and produces a low carbon footprint (6 times lower than cheese, if you can believe it
  • have superior SURFACE FINISH—REHAU’s PVC can be recycled up to 7x and produces a low carbon footprint (6 times lower than cheese, if you can believe it

 

REHAU’s vinyl is made to last. Various longevity studies have shown that a REHAU window system will last 30, even 40 years, compared to the average 15-year lifespan of economy vinyl.

 

Not only are REHAU’s windows and doors made of structurally sound, long-lasting, and high-quality uPVC, but they are also aesthetically pleasing. REHAU’s formulation contains more Titanium Oxide than what most profile suppliers use, which is fancy name for a whitening agent. This ensures that your windows and doors will stay nothing but a pristine white and won’t yellow over time.

 

REHAU’s PVC is also constantly tested and optimized by our in-house chemistry department that constantly strives to find the latest and greatest recipes.

 

Vinyl is not all the same, proven by how REHAU’s vinyl is the basis for exceptional windows and doors that surpass the rest. To learn more about REHAU’s premium uPVC that’s used in all of our products, visit our website.
