Foam PVC Sheet

(AKA Closed-cell PVC foamboard)

Foam_PVC_Display

Foam PVC Sheet is a light weight extruded sheet made with a closed cell structure. This closed cell foam makes it virtually impermeable to air; immune to sunlight, rain and has a R-value for construction. In addition due to its closed cell structure it is very light and easily machinable. It is self-extinguishing and will not decay.

There are many brand names of foam PVC… like Sintra, Celtec, Simopor, and Komatex. For additional information on PVC read our blog.
