Why is the inside different than the outside?
Bufftech has developed a state of the art co-extrusion process. This allows us to put a higher concentration of UV protection into the outer cap, while providing for excellent impact resistance in the interior substrate material. These layers can not separate.

Is Bufftech' vinyl fence made of Recycled Plastic?
Technically, "recycled" refers to post consumer or post industrial materials coming from the waste stream. PVC can and is being recycled. Bufftech does not use the waste stream as a source. However, we do reprocess our own PVC where it meets our ridged specifications. The use of this reprocessed material keeps it out of the waste stream, positively effecting our environment.

Will it Yellow?
Bufftech products contain 10 parts titanium dioxide (T102), which reduces the likelihood of ultraviolet degradation.

Will your vinyl fencing break in cold/hot weather?
As with most plastics, vinyl will become less flexible in colder weather conditions. However, unless subjected to unusual impact, it will not break. It is normal for materials to expand and contract during temperature changes. Our product has been engineered to accommodate normal temperature swings and changing climatic conditions.

Why Don't you make dark colors?
Titanium dioxide is the main ultraviolet inhibitor. It is a white pigment. Therefore, it is difficult to obtain a dark color while having this significant amount of white pigment. Dark colors also absorb heat. There is no current technology that dissipates this heat buildup.

Should I be concerned about fire?
PVC has a high flash point of 900 degree F and does not readily ignite. It is therefore categorized as being "self-extinguishing".

Does it Chalk?
Light chalking is a normal occurrence of any pigmented surface. Washed away by rainfall and normal changes in weather, this process helps to keep your fence looking like new. In effect, it could be described as virtually maintenance-free.
