EC/845/L is a lead stabilised, weather able, rigid PVC extrusion compound .
Window profiles, or durable general extrusion profiles.
Generally white, although other colours are available on request. However, the weatherability of the profile may be compromised by certain colours other than white.
Pellets. A powder-blend version is available on demand.
