Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is a thermoplastic material
having outstanding corrosion resistance, excellent electric
insulating properties and good mechanical strength. The
properties of the material can be varied by the addition of
fillers, plasticizers, stabilizers and colourants. The
material most commonly used in electrical and chemical
industries is unplasticized since plasticizers affect
adversely chemical and electrical properties. It is a dark
grey colour and available in basic shapes such as sheets,
rods. PVC materials are easily cemented and welded using hot
air or bonded using PVC solvent glues.
Excellent chemical resistance & low moisture
absorption, self extinguishing
Good dimensional strength & excellent
performance vs. cost
Easy to machine, thermoform, bond, weld
High mechanical & tensile strength
Excellent electrical insulation properties
Low service temperature & low impact strength
Chemical tanks, valves components, lining & cladding of chemical tanks, battery containers, prototypes.
Round rods, sheets
Round rods: 6 mm – 150 mm diameter x 1000 mm length Sheet: 2 mm – 30 mm thickness x 1220 mm width x 2440 mm length
PVC flexible sheets offer excellent optical clarity for
safe two way traffic and can be adapted as a fixed hinge door
or applied in strip form over doorways. The flexible material
absorbs impact during opening/closing and is well suited for
this kind of application.
Visibility, good impact & corrosion resistance
Excellent chemical resistance
High tensile strength & stiffness
Self extinguishing, fabrication versatility
Acid tank covers, industrial curtains, viewing ports, water treatment, scientific apparatus, supervising table tops.
Sheet: 0.10 mm – 6 mm thickness x 1.30 metre width x 10 metre length
