Polyvinyl chloride / PVC
PVC Sheets, PVC Rods & PVC Tubes offer excellent corrosion and weather resistance. PVC is the most widely used member of the vinyl family.
Common applications include chemical processing tanks, valves, fittings & piping systems. The PVC sheets and rodes have a high strength-to-weight ratio and is a good electrical and thermal insulator.
PVC sheets and rods are also self-extinguishing per UL flammability tests. PVC sheets and rods may be used to temperatures of 60°C.
The rigid PVC is available in form of sheets, rods, and tubing. For improved impact strength, consider Type 2 PVC. For Higher Temperature Performance, consider CPVC.
Application Areas of the PVC sheets and rods include:
- Chemical processing;
- Semiconductor processing equipment;
- Pollution control equipment;
- Machined and fabricated parts;
- Etching and plating tanks;
- Scrubbers, hoods, ducts and other protective equipment;
