PVC – Polyvinyl Chloride
PVC Type I, PVC Type II, Clear PVC and CPVC
Type 1 Gray PVC Sheet
Use in the corrosion resistant markets extensively. Most familiar as household sprinkler pipe, but a workhorse in the industrial market in large sheet and rod. Most common trade names : Boltaron®, Simona®, Geon®, Vintec®, Corazan® and others.
PVC sheet and rod materials can be chemically glued together (think PVC pipe and fittings), but also in larger applications PVC is heat welded together, similar to Polypropylene and Polyethylene materials.
Type I and Type II PVC Differences
Type I has a high corrosion resistance and normal impact properties.
Type II is a high impact modified formula with low chemical resistance.
Here at Industrial Plastic Supply we generally stock a wide variety of PVC Type I material.
PVC Type 1 is a very chemical resistant performance plastic that out performs most other low cost materials.
