Vinyl Quality
Getting Sold Cheap Vinyl Material Not all vinyl is created equal. As in all things, you can always find cheap, low-quality imported products that only suit the needs of those who are not concerned about true value.

The biggest problem with these ‘cheap’ products is that they will turn yellow over a short period of time. The reason for this is due to the lack of UV Inhibitors and other necessary ingredients designed to withstand the damaging effects of the California sun.

At The California Fence Works, we only use high-grade vinyl designed specifically for the Southwest. Our vinyl boasts over 25% more UV Inhibitors versus the vinyl used by other companies. Our vinyl is comprised of 12 % TiO2:

TiO2 Defined: Wikipedia Titanium dioxide, also known as titanium(IV) oxide or titania, is the naturally occurring oxide of titanium, chemical formula TiO2. When used as a pigment, it is called titanium white, Pigment White 6, or CI 77891. It is noteworthy for its wide range of applications, from paint to sunscreen to food colouring.

APPLICATIONS As a pigment of high refringence, titanium dioxide is the most widely used white pigment because of its brightness and very high refractive index (n=2.4), in which it is surpassed only by a few other materials...

This pigment is used extensively in plastics and other applications for its UV resistant properties where it acts as a UV reflector. ...

In almost every sunscreen with a physical blocker, titanium dioxide is found both because of its refractive index and its resistance to discoloration under ultraviolet light. This advantage enhances its stability and ability to protect the skin from ultraviolet light. Sunscreens designed for infants or people with sensitive skin are often based on titanium dioxide and/or zinc oxide, as these mineral UV blockers are less likely to cause skin irritation than chemical UV absorber ingredients, such as avobenzone.
CoExtrusion Additionally, our vinyl is co-extruded to maximize strength and durability. As you will see from the diagram below, our vinyl is actually comprised of 2 “layers”. The top surface layer (capstock) is specially formulated with the best UV resistance properties to resist yellowing. And the inner layer (substrate) is built for high rigidity, which means that our vinyl is the strongest available and will not warp..
In case you are wondering, “Is co-extrusion really necessary? Why can’t there just be one layer?” One single layer can not have both the UV Protection needed against the intense Southwestern sun, along with maximum strength and rigidity. The chemical composition to achieve those 2 results are different.

Protect yourself from being sold low-quality vinyl that will yellow, warp, sag, or crack, over time. Make sure the contractor you chose provides you with adequate information on the manufacturing specifications of the vinyl that they are using.
