Slide background

PVC is one of the most versatile thermoplastics in use today.  It is used extensively from food packaging to home construction.  Its excellent strength to weight ratio and superior flame resistance, coupled with its low cost, make it the material of choice for the most demanding applications.  Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is an amorphous thermoplastic material with excellent chemical resistance and dielectric properties, good tensile, flexural and mechanical strength.

PVC sheet has a very high resistance to many chemicals including concentrated acids, alkalis and alcohols.  Its excellent mechanical strength and ease of machining also makes PVC an exceptionally useful plastic for pipe fittings and components where chemicals are used in industry. PVC sheet is available in grey and white across numerous thicknesses such as 3.0mm, 4.5mm and 6.0mm.
