  • Foam PVC is lightweight, non-toxic, versatile and a good surface for printing on.

  • Rigid Film PVC is commonly used for food packaging as it is approved for food contact and it is chemically non-reactive.

  • Deluxe Vinyl PVC (Twin Wall Foam PVC) is good water resistant and suitable for outdoor uses such as displays and signage. This material is easily processed and a good sound insulator.

  • Industrial Grade PVC is chemical resistant and non-corrosive making it an ideal material for fume cupboards, acid tanks, and drip trays.
