PVC foam board is a new type of board with uniform bubble structure made of PVC (polyvinyl chloride) resin as the main raw material and chemical additives by foam extrusion line. It is a kind of synthetic material which is widely used in the world now. Its density, performance, appearance, texture, waterproof, fireproof, mothproof, sound insulation and other properties are significantly better than natural wood.
Let’s discuss some of the things you should pay attention to in the application of PVC foam boards to avoid some common problems in the process of using them.
PVC foam board is limited by its raw material formula and quality standard, the length of outdoor service life varies. Low-end PVC foam board are prone to yellowing, deformation and aging.
Selection of PVC foam board
When purchasing PVC foam board should be selected according to the actual demand according to the size of the finished product processed, application environment, installation characteristics and other factors, choose the appropriate thickness, density, calcium carbonate content of PVC foam board in order to fit the required strength and performance.
Installation of PVC foam board
PVC foam board installed in outdoor, can be glued (not recommended to use corrosive glue), can also be fixed with advertising screws, etc. It is recommended to use stainless steel screws to avoid rust stains affecting its beauty.
PVC foam board is suitable for CNC engraving, but not for laser machine cutting. Choose a suitable tapered knife, milling cutter or 3D tool when CNC engraving and cutting, otherwise it will be sticky, the cutting surface is not flat enough, etc.
PVC foam board processing into text and other finished products need to be painted to change the color, to do in advance to test the paint match to avoid blistering, paint, peeling and other problems brought about by unsuitable paint.
Made products, pay attention to product safety in transport, small text and components are prone to fracture by impact.
