Vinyl Mart Direct - Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can your vinyl be painted?

    Epoxy based paints are the only paints recommended to paint a vinyl product. Painting our product voids the manufacturer's warranty.

  • What is a Co-Extrusion?

    Co-Extrusion is the manufacturing process used to bond the ingredients into two layers. These layers are fused through extreme heat and pressure and cannot be physically separated. Co-Extrusion allows the manufacturer to have the ability to control the placement of the majority of the UV inhibitor (TIO2) to the outside where it is exposed to the sun. Purchasing a Co-Extruded product will assure you that the product will perform for the long term.

  • Is vinyl strong?

    The vinyl we provide for all our products has 5 times the tensile strength and 4 times the flexibility of wood.

  • Is your product environmentally safe? Does it contain lead?

    Our vinyl is safe and non-toxic and contains no lead. The product does not contain harmful chemicals that can leach into your yard. It is safe for children and pets. This is one of the reasons it has been used extensively in the equine community since the early 1980's.
