Blackline Vinyl Products has developed one of the most advanced building products available in the market today. Blackline is guaranteed to stand the test of time. Blackline is developed by a strategic alliance of scientists and engineers from 4 of the largest companies in Asia, Europe, and North America.
Five years of intensive research and development has revealed the ideal blend of engineered materials from the organic and inorganic PVC matrix. A major ingredient is PVC (polyvinyl chloride) homopolymer compound with 100% virgin vinyl. This blend provides the only black, mono-extruded PVC product on the market with superior UV protection, superb workability, excellent weather resistance, and high impact strength.
Blackline compound is blended with ACM (acryl rubber), the use of calcium zinc, UV stabilizers and anti-oxidants, thus creating optimal UV protection and enhancing impact strength. This, in turn achieves overall product stability. Along with our advanced biochemical engineering, we have revolutionized the extruding process with our twin screw, self-monitoring galling optimization system. This now allows our extruders to accept this new blend of PVC compound.
Using Carbon Black and extensive UV stabilizers our product is field proven to maintain it’s over all appearance. This process results in a lasting deep, rich even color. Most white vinyl products use titanium dioxide (Tio2) as its main stabilizer to retain color; however Blackline Vinyl products do not contain titanium dioxide. Blackline’s chemical make-up lies in technology used from the automobile industry and advanced biochemical engineering.
Blackline is able to resists UV rays and heat distortion up to 180 degrees F. Thus absorbing and dissipating heat while keeping its set design without melting or distortion.
Our product memory retains flexibility in warm and cold temperatures. It will not crack or splinter, and is designed to accommodate normal temperature swings.
Blackline Vinyl’s products are safe, since they’re constructed without sharp edges, and won’t rust, corrode, or require painting. As you can see, Blackline, thru chemical and mechanical engineering has created a product that is virtually maintenance free. Our products have been tested extensively with a zenon accelerated weather machine to the requirements of ASTM J160. After 2,000 hours of testing, equivalent to 20 years, our fade ratio is Delta 3.5. This is lower then any other colored vinyl product on the market to date. Our products are also ‘field proven’ at test sites in Arizona, Florida and Nebraska. They continue to retain a deep, rich black color.
