Vinyl

Glenro has a long history of working with PVC compounds and vinyl products. In fact, the very first Glenro infrared heaters sold were used to preheat vinyl film prior to mechanical embossing. Since that start in 1958, Glenro has participated in nearly every industrial heat processing application area for PVC compounds and the products made from them.
