PVC Machining & Fabrication

PVC Fabrication

PVC, polyvinyl chloride, is just one member of the vinyl family of copolymers and homopolymers. PVC is created in an exceedingly wide range of forms: from clear thin versatile sheet utilized in seat covers to rigid thick sheet utilized in corrosion resistant applications Vanderveer Industrial Plastics deals solely in rigid-sheet PVC, a material that's chemically nonreactive, and can be machined to close tolerances and finishes.

PVC is the oldest sheet product within the market used for corrosion resistant tanks, ducts, fume hoods, and pipe. To boot, PVC also possesses excellent electrical properties, excellent chemical resistance, low moisture absorption, good dimensional strength, and good compressive strength. Once these properties are coupled with PVC's flame resistance and chemical bondability, it's simple to grasp why PVC is thus often the material of choice within the corrosive resistant trade.

The combination of properties possessed by PVC allows it to deliver performance benefits that are hard to match. However, the disadvantages are many. The major disadvantages of PVC are poor weatherability, comparatively low impact strength, and high weight for thermoplastic sheet (specific gravity 1.35). It's simply scratched or marred and possesses a comparatively low heat distortion point (160¡).

Types of PVC

There are two major formulations of unplasticized PVC: Type I (corrosion resistant) and Type II (high impact). Type I PVC is the most typically used PVC, however in applications that call for higher impact strength than that offered by Type I, Type II offers higher impact properties with just a fraction less loss in corrosion resistance.
