PVC

Strong, stiff, versatile low cost plastic material that is easy to fabricate, bond, and weld

Rigid PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is a strong, stiff, low cost plastic material that is easy to fabricate and easy to bond using adhesives or solvents. PVC is also easy to weld using thermoplastic welding equipment. It is frequently used in the construction of tanks, valves, and piping systems. FDA compliant grade available.

PVC Type 1 – Normal impact, excellent chemical and corrosion resistance, easy to fabricate, weld or machine

PVC Type 2 – High impact, excellent chemical and corrosion resistance, easy to fabricate, weld or machine

CPVC – High heat and corrosion resistant CPVC sheet. Excellent corrosion resistance at elevated temperatures.

Bonding PVC – Easily achieved by using Plexus® MA300, a fast-setting methacrylate adhesive, to create stronger bonds than the PVC itself.

Tech Tip – PVC also comes in fire safe materials specially formulated to exceed FM 4910 fire compliances in semiconductor and cleanroom applications.
