PVC

PVC sheet is high-impact and chemical resistant. Use for chemical storage, tanks, towers, oil tanks, and photographic developing instruments. Easy to fabricate with strong glue joints.
  • Size: 4' x 8' x .060", 4' x 8' x .125", 4' x 8' x .187", 4' x 8' x .250"
  • Color: dark grey

Ultra-White PVC

Ultra-White PVC sheet is an advanced PVC formulation designed specifically for outdoor applications where resistance to ultraviolet (UV) degradation is critical. High-gloss white finish reduces absorption of heat energy. High strength-to-weight ratio assures extra wear resistance in applications which may be subjected to high impact stress. Excellent machinability.
  • Size: 4' x 8' x .125", 4' x 8' x .250"
  • Color: ultra-white

Foam PVC

Make a sign... paint a message on Foam PVC.
Foam PVC
is an economical sign material that can be cut, drilled, and line bent. It is opaque enough to use for double-faced signs.
  • Size: 4' x 8' x .118" (1/8")
  • Colors: white, black, gray, red, green, light yellow, dark blue
  • Size: 4' x 8' x .236" (1/4")
  • Colors: white, black

Styrene High-Impact

Styrene High-Impact sheet has excellent forming properties, is nontoxic, odorless, and dimensionally stable. Indoor applications: signs, models, boxes, toys, and more.
  • Sizes: 4' x 8' x .060", 4' x 8' x .125"
  • Color: white

Delrin® (Thermoplastic Polymer)

White acetal rod and black filament wound epoxy tubing.
Acetal sheet is a thermoplastic polymer with a high-melting point. It is suited for mechanical parts and electrical insulators. It has great strength, stiffness, abrasion resistance, and elasticity.
