PVC

PVC (Polyvinylchloride) is a heavy duty yet cost effective plastic known for its excellent acid & corrosion resitant properties. The anti-corrosive properties of PVC are remarkably higher than many other engineering plastics. Available in rod, sheet, roll and film, PVC is easily formable and weldable, and with the ability to withstand high temperatures for short periods it can be heat welded or cemented together for custom made fabrications.

Commonly used in various industries to contain corrosive solutions and chemicals, the applications of PVC are almost unlimited, from credit cards and records, to specialized machine parts, corrosion resistant tanks and etchers, and use in water treatment facilities.
Clear PVC roll serves many purposes, such as awnings in outdoor seating areas, table covers, and covers for gazebos and other outdoor structures, to name a few.

Features and Benefits of PVC:

Outstanding chemical and corrosion resistance
Easy to weld

Suitable Plastic Adhesives:

The best plastic adhesives to use with PVC are:
ACRI-BOND 10 – For strong PVC joints
ACRI-BOND 20 – Used by model-makers and fabricators and for cementing of larger areas

We supply our own range of superior quality Australian made adhesives. Please see the Adhesives & Polish page for more information on these glues.

As with all of our engineering plastics, acetal rod, sheet & rolls can be cut to size, and custom fabricated as required. All products and services we provide are available to the general public, including custom design and fabrication. Limited engineering plastics and adhesives are available on our eBay store.
