PVC cones for protein skimmers, architectural and trade show displays, light diffusers, funnels, tanks, hoods, shrouds, duct transitions and many other applications.
We make clear and opaque cones in any thermo-formable material. The size is limited only by our shop door.
We fabricate clear cones primarily from acrylic, clear PVC, LEXAN® (polycarbonate), and PETG and we fabricate opaque cones in PVC, polypropylene, polyethylene ABS, Kynar® (PVDF) and any other plastics that can be thermoformed.
The cones can be symmetrical, or offset. If you can draw it, we can probably make it.
PVC is often the preferred material because it is chemically resistant to most acids and bases making ideal for hoods and ducts. It has a lower forming temperature than acrylic or polycarbonate making it easier to form and adjust with hot air. It is often possible to form a PVC cones without a mold making it the lowest cost cone. PVC is softer and more flexible than acrylic making it less likely to break with mishandling.
