PVC Type 1 sheet is a very commonly used thermoplastic sheet. PVC is typically well known for resistance to flame, electrical, water, chemical, and abrasion in various applications. PVC sheet comes in various grades: Type 1 (most common, general purpose), Type 2 (more impact resistant than Type 1) for complex fabrication, and foamed PVC (lighter weight) for signage applications. PVC generally is used in various application where it’s combination of properties solve a variety of challenges for machined parts.
