PVC – Type I Grey

PVC – Type I Grey

PVC sheet and rod are bondable, durable and are fire rated

PVC – Polyvinyl Chloride

PVC Type I, PVC Type II, Clear PVC and CPVC


Type 1 Gray PVC Sheet

Rigid Vinyl products offer an excellent blend of physical properties, low cost, and ease of fabrication.

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.

New Name For Famous Type 1 PVC Sheet

New Name For Famous Type 1 PVC Sheet

Boltaron® 1050E now Simona® Type 1 PVC Sheet

There are several manufactures of Gray PVC Sheet in North America. One of the best knows name for over 60 years has been Boltaron®. They have produced a high quality PVC sheet that is well know and respected. In 2004, Boltaron® acquired the assets of Empire Plastics, an Ohio based PVC Sheet producer, adding to Boltaron® overall production capacity. This acquisition was designed to also add to their already robust product line.Name Change For Boltaron 1050E PVC Sheet to Simona PVC sheet
In early 2014, Simona® America Group (also known at Simona AG) acquired all of Boltaron® Performance Products, and Simona® also acquired Laminations, Inc. of Hazleton, PA.

Simona® America is a leading producer of a wide variety of Performance Plastics including: PVC Sheet, HDPE Sheet, Polypropylene Sheet and Kynar® PVDF Sheets. The purchase of Boltaron® Plastics boosted the width and breadth of the product lines already supplied by Simona® America. With the addition of Laminations Inc., Simona® America added an industry leader in high tech plastics that meet the FM-4910 fire ratings, including: PVC, Polypropylene and Kynar® PVDF sheet materials.

For the last 3 years, Simona® America has been actively combining the product lines that Simona produced along with Boltaron® and Laminations® production, and trimming duplicate productions. A concerted effort was made to harmonize the materials, so all materials would be from the same resins and will look and perform in a similar fashion, and as a result will optimize manufacturing efficiencies.

Just A New Name For PVC Sheets

Simona® America has now announced that the Boltaron® 1050E Type 1 PVC Sheet will now be called Simona® PVC Type 1 Sheet effective January 1, 2018.

This is just a name change and the PVC sheet will continue to be the same great product as before. There is no difference between the two materials, the name change only reflects the transition from the 2 manufacturing companies to the combined manufacturing capacity of Boltaron® and Simona®Large PVC part machined from PVC Rod Type 1 Gray PVC Sheet and Sheeting. Type 1 PVC Sheet continues to offer one of the lowest priced materials that meets the difficult UL 94 V-0 fire rating.

There will be no change to quality or lead times, and the PVC Type 1 sheet will still be available from .060” – 4.0” thickness. One key to the Simona acquisition is that Boltaron® Performance Products has been the only North American company to produce products using extrusion, calendaring and press lamination all under one roof. Boltaron® can produce the widest thickness range of standard and specialty PVC plastic sheeting in the industry, from .003” to 4.0” thickness. They also possess the capacity to produce sheets of multi-layer composites, which can provide a broad range of physical properties.

Due to the wide range of products that Boltaron® has the capacity to produce; Simona® can now add to their offerings these additional products. The Boltaron® plant has extreme proficiency in producing PVC Sheet as well as PVC Alloys and Composites. These materials generally carry very high flame resistant ratings, and some of Boltaron® materials carry the highest ratings available from UL. Some of the most common PVC materials are the Type 1 Gray PVC Sheet, Type 2 PVC Sheet, Clear PVC Sheets, and CPVC Sheet materials. Much like a standard sheet of plywood, PVC sheet materials are normally produced in 48” X 96” sheets.
