To solve the problem of shrinking crystal (clear) PVC, SMRE developed a system for the just-in-time heat treatment of single sheets. After the treatment with infrared light and cold air the clear PVC is perfectly stable and can be welded or sewn into finished products like pergolas, shade sails, tension structures, marquees, or veranda covers, and will not shrink anymore, even when exposed to heat or cold.

Whereas other systems cause the crystal PVC to age, stiffen, and give it a yellowish color, the treatment with the SMRE system will leave the fabric perfectly transparent, clear, and flexible. And completely stable.

The stabilization system can be installed on the SM-400-TA Dual axes cutting machine. Originally designed to cut specialty fabrics typically used in the awning and sun protection industry, its solid industrial structure, high speed brushless motors, and quality cutting tools make this machine the ideal cutting solution for manufacturers in many other industries as well.
