Simply put, an Air Bladder is a manufactured product made out of flexible plastic materials, such as PVC, that can be inflated with air. When manufacturing these air bladders, it’s essential to use flexible plastic materials because of the variety of applications and uses across many industries.
The materials used to create air bladders vary because of the vast number of applications across many industries. But, the most common materials used in manufacturing are Polyethylene, Polypropylene, PVC, or Vinyl. Each one of these materials has its specific strengths or weaknesses depending on the use case. PVC is the most commonly used material for air bladders because of its flexibility and economical features. PVC also comes in different thicknesses and colors, making it so versatile for any use. At Specialty Plastic Fabricators we specialize in manufacturing our Air Bladders using flexible plastic made out of PVC sheets. We then take each bladder through our PVC sheet welding process, producing flexible plastic bladders with a tight seam that is far more durable than other materials.
