Manufacturer Improves PVC Power Washer Hose with Custom Formulation
Saved time and money while improving quality
Today’s top manufacturers know that to edge out competitors they have to scrutinize each decision in the manufacturing process and continually explore ways to save time and money and improve product line efficiencies. A top manufacturer of pressure washers and power equipment sought an alternative to polyvinyl chloride (PVC) for one of its product components, needing a more consistent processing PVC for the inner lining of a pressure washer hose.
Nexeo Plastics proposed using a custom polyolefin blend to offset the PVC the customer was using. With the new blend undergoing thorough cycle testing to qualify, the manufacturer was then able to go to production with a more consistent processing material, improving production time and decreasing material costs.
