PVC BOARDS – NEXT GEN ENDURANCE PANELS

pvc-boardsOur Latest innovative introduction in the market supplanting traditional plywoods/boards in their uses and much beyond: Straton Integral foam PVC boards are chemically foamed, extruded rigid, light weight sheets with fine and homogenous closed cell structure and smooth finishes on both sides. 

Features-2

PVC sheets are one of the most popular plastic kinds that are used in the construction and engineering industry and have high hardness and mechanical properties that enhances with the increasing molecular weight but decreases with the rising temperature.

Our PVC Boards possesses such physical properties that provide designers with an array of options while designing new products and developing solutions as it also acts as a replacement or refurbishment material. It is an upward trend for PVC foam board suppliers in India as the customers using plywood boards are now switching preference. On the contrary, PVC boards are lighter, less operative-expensive and offer many performance advantages. PVC panels are easy to install, water-proof, maintenance-free and are available in various textures, patter and design.

WORKING DIRECTIONS

  • Machining PVC Boards can be easily and quickly worked with standard tools used for wood. It can be cut, turned drilled, planned, milled, screwed, polished and much more. To prevent breaking and splintering the tools must be sharp. It is not necessary to cool the tools.
  • Forming – To some extent the PVC Boards are suitable for easy Vacuum forming, Bending & Folding can be done when heated up.
  • Welding – PVC Boards can be welded as per normal welding methods. But lot of care should be taken otherwise foam might collapse.
  • Bonding PVC integral foam Boards can be bonded to other material and to itself. Depending on the requirement and applications, different types of adhesives can be used. When bonding to itself adhesives containing solvent and solvent-free polyurethane adhesives are suitable.
  • Printing – Due to its smooth surface. PVC sheets can be easily painted and printed. The surface is ideal for screen printing for which special inks are used. The surface should be clean for printing purpose.
  • Fixing Recommendations  Our PVC sheets are made of thermoplastic PVC and therefore vary more in length than e.g. timer or metal working materials. When installing Screen Printed advertisement boards in e.g. Cricket stadia or when fixing curtain walling or cladding, a possible expansion of the sheets has always to be taken into consideration. The appropriate fixing depends on the type of application.

MACHINABILITY AND WORKABILITY

MACHINING

PVC sheets can be easily machined using ordinary tools used for processing metal or wood. However, the following precautions need to be taken. Avoid sharp edges and deep notches which can cause stresses leading to early breakage to the plastic sheets. Cooling is not necessary under normal conditions if the cutting edges are kept sharp and the processing heat is dissipated by quickly removing the shavings. However, compressed air, water or cooling liquid is suitable if used in accordance with the existing safety instructions. To obtain smooth or glossy surfaces on the PVC boards, finishing with felt buffing wheels or tapes is recommended.

  • Cutting/Sawing – PVC sheets up to 3mm thickness can be cut with a knife or blade. Thicker PVC sheets can be cut with hand saw or circular saw. High saw speeds up to 3000 RPM with tooth pitch of 5 to 10mm are used depending on sheet thickness. For circular saws, it is commonly recommended to use tooth geometry alternating between flat tooth, trapezoidal tooth and rigid metal. Always fasten the sheet and avoid vibrations during cutting to achieve clean cutting edges.
  • Drilling – PVC sheets can be drilled with conventional, high helix, high speed steel carbide tipped metal bits. Cutting edges must be kept sharp to prevent poor surface finish and undersized holes. Cutting and feeding speed depends on depth of bores, the thicker the sheet the lower the speed.
  • Routing – Stationary or hand routers can be used for slotting, beveling, rabbeting, rounding edges and trimming to the PVC boards. Best cutting results are obtained with carbide tipped router bits.
  • Milling – PVC sheets can be milled with milling tool that has allowance to accommodate smoother removal of chips. High forward feed along with moderate cutting speed and deep cuts will lead to good results.
  • Turning – PVC sheets can be worked by turning with a point of turning tool rounded to 0.50 mm radius to avoid linear marks on cutting surfaces. During precision turning, lower cut (2mm) and faster feeding should be used to prevent sheet breakage.
  • Cutting & Punching – PVC sheets can be easily cut by shearing up to 3mm thickness. In case any deformity, rougher cut surface or fracturing is noticed, it is primarily because of sheet temperature. PVC sheet, a thermoplastic material, tends to acquire brittleness at lower temperatures. Therefore, pre-heat the sheet material to 95° – 131° F, before shearing. Die cutting by “Steel rule dies” is a common practice. Ideally it is 25mm wide strip steel, thickness 0.35–1mm, with one edge pre-shaped as knife. Bevel may be used depending on cut requirements with one side or both side honing. The bevel should be 5 or 6mm in length.

BONDING

PVC Sheet can be bonded both to itself and other materials. Adhesive types must be chosen according to bonding requirements.

  • Edge bonding and joining parts of sheet materials: PVC solvents such as Tetrahydrofuran, Methyl Ethyl Ketone or Cyclohexanone can be used. Solvents must be fresh and effective.
  • Bonding to nonporous materials such as other plastics/metals: Polyurethane or other synthetic rubber based adhesives are recommended. Solvent-free two part. Polyurethane adhesive can also be used. Adhesives must be applied to both faces; quantity approximately 150g/m_. A parallel bead of adhesive is often preferred because it offers evaporation of solvent providing faster cure.
  • Bonding with flexible PVC sheets: Only plasticizer-resistant type adhesives should be used. Bonding porous material such as, papers, Textiles, Fabrics or
  • Wood: Contact adhesive with solvent can be used. Follow same directions for application as for non-porous bonding. Pressure sensitive tape can be used for stress free and less demanding applications.

PAINTING & COATING

PVC sheets are easy to paint with rigid PVC compatible paints. These can be Vinyl, Acrylic lacquers, or two part Polyurethane based paints. Sheets must be dry, clean and oil/grease free. Cloth soaked in Isopropyl alcohol is recommended for surface cleaning. Screen printing should be allowed to air dry instead of heat drying. Temperatures in excess of 149° F may cause sheet warping or blowing.
