Know The Differences between PP sheet and 4X8 PVC Foam Board


When customers buy boards, they usually think of PP board and 4x8 pvc foam board, but what is the difference between the two boards? Lida Plastics will summarize the following points and share with you, hoping to provide reference information for those in need.

   First of all

When customers buy boards, they usually think of PP board and 4x8 pvc foam board, but what is the difference between the two boards? Lida Plastics will summarize the following points and share with you, hoping to provide reference information for those in need.

   First of all, both PP board and PVC board are chemical polymers, PP is polypropylene, and PVC is polyvinyl chloride.

   1. Color difference:

   PP material cannot be made transparent, the commonly used colors are primary colors (natural color of PP material), beige gray, porcelain white, milky white, etc. PVC has richer colors, generally gray, light gray, white, yellow-white, transparent, etc.

  2, weight difference:

  PP board has a lower density than PVC board, and PVC has a higher density, so PVC is heavier.

   3. Acid and alkali resistance:

   The acid and alkali resistance of PVC is better than that of PP board, but the texture is brittle and hard, resistant to ultraviolet radiation, can withstand climate change for a long time, is not flammable, and has light toxicity.

  4, temperature difference:

  A, domestic; PP has a temperature range of 0 to 80 degrees Celsius, PVC has a temperature range of 0 to 60 degrees Celsius, and CPVC material has a temperature range of -40 to 95 degrees Celsius. B. Imported brands: The temperature range of PP is about 0 to 100 degrees Celsius, and the temperature range of PVC is -40 to 95 degrees Celsius.

   5. Price difference:

   The price of PP is relatively low compared to that of PVC. PP is cheaper and PVC has a higher density, so PVC is heavier and more expensive.

   6. Application range:

  1. PP board is mainly used in acid and alkali resistant equipment, environmental protection equipment, waste water, exhaust gas discharge equipment, washing towers, clean rooms, semiconductor factories and related industrial equipment. Among them, PP thick plates are widely used in stamping plates and mattresses. Board etc. B. PVC board is mainly used in building materials, packaging, medicine and many other industries. Such as construction, electroplating equipment, acid and alkali resistant equipment, industrial sewage equipment, chemical industry, etc.
