The Wilvic injection plant currently operates 24 injection moulding machines with capacities that range from 20 to 160 tons all of which are controlled from a centralised computer base. To ensure optimal operating efficiency all machines are monitored 24 hours a day and maintenance engineers are also on hand for preventative maintenance and repair where necessary.

Wilvic manufactures products using high-end engineering polymer granules and is one of the biggest users of these in South Africa. All raw material compounds are prepared according to client specifications containing the necessary colour, fire retardant and UV stabilisers within the various core materials:

  • fibre-filled nylon
  • Acetal
  • Zytrel
  • Nylon 66
  • Nylon 6
  • Hytrel
  • Polypropylene
  • PPSU
  • LDPE
  • Foreprene
  • HDPE
  • PVC

The exceptional quality of these raw materials results in an end product that is superior in performance. They behave superbly in adverse temperatures; there is also less creep and moisture absorption.

Following manufacture products are randomly tested to ensure the high quality standards that clients both locally and internationally have come to expect.
