PVC (Polyvinylchloride) is available in rod and sheet form from Pacific West Corporation – Plastic Suppliers.

PVC is one of the oldest sheet and tube engineering plastic products on the market, and is used extensively in the production of tanks.

For example, corrosion resistant tanks and etchers, and metal chrome platers tanks.

Also, PVC is widely used in the photography field to contain corrosive solutions. The anti-corrosive characteristics of PVC are remarkable, and far higher than many other engineering plastics.

As PVC will withstand temperatures of over 140 degrees F for short periods, this makes PVC a useful engineering plastic.

PVC can be cemented together or heat welded for custom-made plastic fabrications. The applications of PVC are almost unlimited, but it should be noted that rigid PVC plastic will crack under impact.

Pacific West can supply all user PVC needs either in the raw product, or custom made machined PVC plastic parts.

Some common products which are made from PVC include credit cards and also records.
