PVC Foam

PVC foam is commonly used in both indoor and outdoor applications. Its chemical composition combines different polymers to produce Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC). Often used in furniture, building, and advertising sectors. It is a closed-cell foam solution that is lightweight and moisture and corrosion-resistant. Alongside this, it is also resistant to chemicals too. PVC foam is fire resistant and very long-lasting; in fact, it takes a long time to decay and retains its colour and clean finish easily, without fading.

Using PVC Foam Sheets

As PVC foam sheeting is as little as half the weight of solid PVC, it is the go-to material to use for advertising purposes. Commonly used for signage and displays, PVC foam is easy to fabricate and bond. As well as, withstand rain, wind, and sunlight without deteriorating in its performance. The foam can also be drilled, sawed, glued, painted and milled to your requirements which opens up even further uses. Other applications include covering ceilings, stand constructions, screen printing, and wallpaper panels.

Cost- Effective

PVC foam is highly cost-effective which is why it is a commonly used foam for many different industries. With varied applications and affordable pricing, it serves well if you are looking for lightweight foam that is guaranteed to stand the test of time. PVC foam sheeting is easy to clean and requires very little maintenance, in fact, in a clean environment the foam sheets will only need cleaning a few times a year. However, should damage take place to the foam sheeting after time, their pricing means you will not be breaking the bank when it comes to buying replacement foam sheeting.

Rocon Foam

As highly experienced foam manufacturers, we can supply PVC foam sheeting in three different variations:
