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
