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.

PVC Sheet and PVC Panels, PVC Is Much More Than Just Pipe

PVC Sheet and PVC Panels Go Way Beyond Pipe

When choosing a plastic raw material, the first step should be to look for the material with the proper physical properties. PVC (Polyvinyl-chlorideMachined PVC parts for chemical resistance or Rigid Vinyl) is an amazingly strong and versatile material that has proven itself a champion in the ever growing demand for mechanical grades of plastic. We can see its wide versatility in the way it is used and how it can keep up with the rough conditions it’s put under. PVC Pipe has been shown to take a beating in construction sites and it serves its purpose underneath our front lawns for our sprinkling systems. There are many more ways this strong industrial grade PVC can be used.

PVC Sheet and Rod for a wide variety of industrial and mechanical applications

A standard industrial plastics, it is available as PVC Sheet or PVC Rod. The PVC, unlike other materials, is very easy to work with. It’s not necessary to buy expensive tools to get the job done. You can use the most of the same tools you would use on wood and steel. Unlike other materials, PVC can be kept cool easily using cold water or you can use an air compressor. Standard CNC equipment, punch machines, routers, drills and saws can all be used to shape PVC. If you wanted to seal and bond this material, that’s not a problem because like the PVC Pipe, the sheets and rods can be bonded with cements or heat welded. The cost of PVC is also lower than most other plastic materials that are harder to work with. So you can see why PVC should be on your short list of plastic materials.

Standard PVC sheet sizes and thicknesses for PVC Sheet

The standard sheet size for PVC is 48” x 96”. Some of you may know those measurements because that is also the standard size of drywall and plywood. Because PVC comes in the same sizes as other common materials it would be fairly easy to store. As for the thickness .062” – 3” are the most standard thicknesses, but it can be made thicker if needed. The material cuts and fabricates well, and we do offer cutting to your blank or precision sizes. We also cut the rest of the industrial and engineering plastics, including: Acetal/Delrin, Nylon, PEEK, Ultem, and dozens more; call for details.

PVC Sheets take a beating

PVC has many excellent properties, including the unbelievable UL 94 V-0 flame rating. This certification means that the Rigid Vinyl material is fire retardant, and is considered ‘self extinguishing. By now you are probably were thinking “PVC sounds great so far, but I wanted to paint and screen print on a material”, then have no fear because PVC Sheet and Sheeting is here! PVC is also known for its ability to hold paint and a screen print. It is heat bendable, vacuum formable in thinner gauges, and bondable to materials such as wood, paper and other plastics. Because of PVC’s many usages and qualities we even see it being use to create house hold items.Dark Grey Gray PVC sheet and rod

The material can be sanded, routed and you can eliminate scratches and scrapes by simply buffing or sanding them away. With PVC being so versatile and also low in cost, it’s no wonder why it is a top choice for manufacturing and engineering companies. Click here for
