For consumers, how to choose PVC plastic bed board

Time:2023-02-06

What is PVC foam?
First, let’s look at PVC foam. Polyvinyl chloride or PVC is one of the most popular plastics in the world. One of its many derivatives is PVC foam board.
The PVC foam is strong, stiff, and durable, and the air bubbles also make it lightweight. It comes in a variety of densities, but is generally much lighter than solid PVC. Some of the most popular applications for PVC foam manufacturing include:

Indoor and Outdoor Signage
Dimension lettering
As a substrate for printing, lamination, etc.
as the core material of ships and even some aircraft
Materials as Prototypes or Models
We provide all kinds of PVC foam board manufacturing services. This material is very popular in the market.

 

 

Benefits of PVC Foam
In addition to its versatility, PVC foam offers several other advantages, including:

Highly workable; easy to cut, glue and fasten
Thermoformable
Naturally has a matte finish but can be made to any desired finish
Strong resistance to organic solvents
Origin of marine industry
In addition, PVC foam is highly resistant to water, wind, salt, temperature and sunlight. This makes it ideal for outdoor use, especially in marine applications.

 

What are the advantages of PVC plastic bed boards over wooden materials

The material most often replaced by PVC foam board is wood. Here are some of the most critical points to consider when comparing the two.

weight
PVC foam board is much lighter than wood, but does not suffer compared to fire, weather, water and chemical resistance. In addition, it is lightweight for easy transportation and installation.

strength
Wood leads the way in strength, while PVC foam board is extremely durable and built to last. While untreated wood may need to be replaced periodically due to water damage and rot, PVC foam board will last longer without losing structural integrity.

cost
The cost difference between PVC foam board and wood is not particularly significant. Compared to wood, however, PVC foam panels require less maintenance, can be pre-formed to custom sizes, and are easy to install—all saving labor costs and time.

Versatility
Custom-made PVC foam boards can be pre-made on demand. Straight panels can also be cut and drilled like wood without any special tools. However, it may take more effort to shape the wood into the desired shape.

In addition to PVC foam board, we also have PVC composite siding, PVC clear plastic sheet and so on.
