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

PVC is a sheet and tube engineering plastic product 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 good and far higher than many other engineering plastics.

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

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

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

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