Hard PVC

PVC sheets and rods are a durable, tough material that is resistant to chemicals, acids, weather and abrasion. It can be machined and tooled into a vast variety of shapes and components. It is strong yet relatively lightweight, affordable and widely available. While it has a low melting point in comparison to other plastics, this is a great advantage to fabricators. It has a very good fire rating as its self extinguishing.

Why should you choose PVC Sheets and Rods?
PVC sheet is an extremely durable material that is much stronger than some other plastics. It can typically withstand impacts many times that which completely shatter components made of Acrylic or Styrene, for example. PVC is extremely chemical resistant and resists attack or degradation from a wide range of chemicals, making it the material of choice in many tough industrial applications.

Advantages of the rigid PVC Sheets and Rods 

 Hard PVC has good hardness and mechanical properties

 Good electrical insulating properties

 Very high chemical & moisture resistance

 Excellent forming characteristics

 

 Good dimensional stability

 Bondable and an excellent for welding

 Hard PVC sheets and rods are self-extinguishing

​ Fairly inexpensive


Disadvantages of PVC Sheets and rods

 Heat stability of PVC isn’t great– when the temperature reaches 140 °C PVC starts to decompose and its melting temperature is 160 °C. 

 Its electrical insulating property aren’t quite as good as plastics such as polyethylene and polypropylene.

 PVC should not be used for items requiring a lot of flexibility, low friction, high wear resistance

 

 Generally PVC is only suitable for medium or low voltage and low frequency insulation materials

​ PVC sheets and rods should be used for continuous contact with food products

PVC rods

PVC rods  Polyvinyl chloride - one of the most common plastics in the world. The wides use of PVC rods in engineering received is the construction of tanks and apparatuses due to their excellent resistance to chemicals and water. Industrial grey PVC rods are very resistant to chemicals agents and easy to machine and glue. Polyvinylchloride rods are resistant to acids, alkalis and aliphatic hydrocarbons, but is unstable to the action of aromatic..
