What Is uPVC?

If you are in the construction industry, your company may generate a substantial quantity of uPVC waste. uPVC stands for unplasticized polyvinyl chloride, and first gained popularity in the 1980s. This was when window and door manufacturers realised that uPVC frames offered material advantages over wood and aluminium.
The uPVC could be moulded to fit practically any window shape at low cost, and insulated homes much better than alternative materials. This prevented the build-up of condensation and offered energy-efficient advantages.

The uPVC Products That We Recycle

uPVC Windows

Construction and double-glazing window installers remove uPVC windows daily for home improvement. uPVC has particular properties which make it highly desirable for window construction. Plastic Expert is here to help you process your uPVC window frame.

uPVC Door Frames

uPVC doors are popular for the same reason as windows. uPVC doors help to insulate buildings, reducing heating bills and the risk of mould growth. Like windows, uPVC doors embody a substantial amount of plastic. Again, Plastic Expert is here to help you cut down on your waste, and have your uPVC waste easily recycled.

HDPE Canisters

We can collect triple rinsed & baled HDPE canisters/bottles along with other materials. This offers an eco friendly solution to many types of your plastic waste.

uPVC Frames

uPVC frames became desirable because of their renowned durability and insulating properties; they complemented double and triple-glazing perfectly. We recycle all your uPVC frames, providing you with exceptional flexibility.

uPVC Conservatories

We recycle the plastic content of uPVC conservatories, reducing the environmental impact of your work.

How We Recycle Your Waste uPVC

Check out the uPVC recycling process below from our national window recycling company. We can also supply waste compactors to bale your uPVC waste effectively.
Step 1: We Collect Your uPVC Material
At Plastic Expert, we like to make things easy for our customers. That’s why we offer a full collection service. Typically, we move your plastic waste material using roll-on/off containers, walking floor trailers and bulkers.
Step 2: Delivering uPVC to our Processing Facility
Our drivers deliver the uPVC material to a processing facility where it is inspected and prepared for processing. We can recycle most uPVC there and then, but the contamination in some waste uPVC may not meet our standards for recycling.
Step 3: Shred the Material
Provided that the uPVC is of sufficient quality, it is then loaded into a shredder machine. This is designed to break the plastic down into smaller particles.
Step 4: Remove Non-uPVC Materials
The next step is to remove all non-PVC materials from uPVC windows and doors, including rubber, glass, and steel. We do this by using a variety of methods, including powerful magnets. Where possible, we recycle the metal we extract, but we need to remove it first because we cannot incorporate it into the uPVC recycling process.
uPVC products often contain a range of other metals, not just steel. These metals include zinc, aluminium and brass. We use specialist separation processes to remove these contaminants from the uPVC and store them for further processing on-site. We also use colour-sorting devices to detect rubber components (often used to seal the gap between uPVC frames and the glazing).
Step 5: Turn the uPVC into Granules
The final stage in the process is to turn the purified uPVC into granules. The manufacturing process uses these granules as the basis for creating new uPVC products, completing the cycle.

A strong resin compound is heated and moulded into a die shaped like the final product. Once the profiles are made, they are cooled to allow the profiles to solidify. These are then cut to the window frame dimension and shape.
