PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)

Description

PVC (polyvinylchloride) is a thermoplastic material with excellent chemical resistance and dielectric properties, good tensile, flexural and mechanical strength, low moisture absorption, exceptional dimensional stability and good flammability characteristics. Generally there are two basic types of PVC available – rigid PVC and plasticized PVC (flexible). There are hundreds of formulations available for desired physical properties targeted to a specific application. Call Total Plastics for help in determining what will work best for you. PVC is available in a wide range of colors as well as transparent variations. We handle rigid industrial PVC in sheet, slab, tube, pipe, profiles, fittings and rod.

Type I Grey PVC is a general purpose grade with good chemical resistance and a low cost-to-weight ratio. Type II has a higher impact, but lower chemical resistance. CPVC has higher temperature resistance and exceptional fire resistance properties, providing products with low flame spread and smoke generation characteristics. Total Plastics also handles the full range of flexible PVC which is available in sheet, film, fittings and flexible tubing.

*Applications:*
* Tanks
* Pipe
* Bolsters
* Valves
* Laboratory equipment
* Pump parts
* Fittings
* Electrical panels
* Nuts
* Spacers

CLEAR PVC
Clear polyvinyl chloride is a flexible or rigid material that is chemically non-reactive. PVC has a broad range of applications, from high volume construction related products to simple electric wire insulation and coatings.

GREY TYPE II HIGH IMPACT PVC
Type II grade PVC has a higher impact resistance than Type I, but has lower chemical resistance. It is easily thermoformed for a wide range of applications.

Grey, Black and White. Call Total Plastics for Custom Colors and Clear.
