PVC is the largest polymer in the vinyl group and the most versatile of the thermoplastics. It’s wide range of properties and self extinguishing characteristics make PVC unique. It is non-corrosive, chemical and oil resistant material that is impervious to water. It has excellent electrical insulation properties. Can be cut, shaped, drilled and bent.

- For both band and circular saws use blades with a minimum tooth set, and about 8 to 10 teeth per inch
- Prevent overheating by feeding slowly
- Use low machining speeds for turning and shaping and to assure easy removal of machining chips
- Between 130oC and140oC (266oF and 284oF) sheets become formable and can then be formed, press molded or blow formed
- Use conventional drills, but be certain to remove drill chips in order to avoid overheating of the sheet. Also, use slow rate of penetration.
- Sheets can be bonded with conventional solvent based PVC adhesives extruded PVC sheets are weldable by the hot-air welding process conventionally used for PVC.
