Using the right release material is critical for vinyl window manufacturing.

PTFE-coated weld sheets protect window profiles from platen damage. AFC’s latest product line, DuraStick® HD Elite, was specifically designed to maximize weld plate performance. The 285-05 (.005” thick) and 285-06 (.006”) options provide superior heat transfer over competitive products, ensuring a clean weld. By adding a specialty coating mix, an abrasion-resistant barrier is formed between window profile and weld plate. A high performance silicone adhesive is then applied to prevent residue buildup on the platens. 

The result? Increased cycle counts between change outs, and reduced operating costs. See below for all of AFC’s vinyl window products. Download Vinyl Window Brochure.
