PVC is mostly known in its soft version as artificial leather in the classic applications for belts, shoes, bags: the products are varied.
The plates are used for the production of displays, signs and the like. In architectural model making they are well suited for the representation of transparent and translucent surfaces.
PVC sheets are characterised by their very good chemical resistance and high mechanical strength and hardness. It is very insensitive to sunlight, water and air and is therefore ideal for long-life use.
Processing: PVC-U is
formed in the temperature range between 110 °C and 180 °C (e.g. bending, deep drawing). However, forming should not be carried out at temperatures between 140 °C and 165 °C, as elongation is severely restricted in this area. Scoring is possible with thicker sheets, as rigid PVC is relatively notch-sensitive. Technical bondings between PVC and other materials are produced with two-component adhesives based on polyester, polyurethane or epoxy resin. Small area bondings can be carried out with cyanacrylate adhesives (speed adhesives/super glue).
Our offer: rigid PVC
sheets are available in thicknesses of 1.0 mm and up to 1000 x 2000 mm. We also have an extensive range of PVC rigid films in thicknesses of 0.2 mm and 0.5 mm and some rigid PVC profiles.
