“In the context of vinyl fencing, “virgin vinyl” refers to the fact that the material used to make the fencing is pure, high-quality polyvinyl chloride (PVC) that has not been recycled. Virgin vinyl fencing is made from PVC that is specifically formulated for use in fencing and is typically more durable and long-lasting than fencing made from recycled vinyl. It is also generally more expensive than fencing made from recycled vinyl.
Vinyl fencing is a popular choice for residential and commercial properties because it is low maintenance, durable, and attractive. It is also a more environmentally friendly option than wood fencing, as it does not require the cutting down of trees and does not rot or deteriorate over time. Virgin vinyl fencing is considered to be the highest quality type of vinyl fencing available and is often used for its superior performance and longevity.
In contrast, “regrind” refers to recycled PVC material that has been ground down into small particles and reused in the production of new vinyl products. Some companies that produce vinyl fencing may use a combination of regrind and virgin PVC in their products in order to reduce costs while still maintaining a certain level of quality. However, it is generally considered to be of lower quality than virgin PVC and may not be as durable or long-lasting as fencing made from pure, un-recycled PVC. These recycled materials may contain impurities or lower grade vinyl which can seriously affect the finished product’s resilience, impact resistance, and UV inhibition. Therefore, it is important to consider the materials used in the production of vinyl fencing when making a purchase, as this can affect the performance and durability of the fence over time.”
