PVC foam sheet, commonly referred to as Foamex, is a durable, lightweight material that is used in the printing and design industry to create high quality advertising boards, signage and scale models. Manufactured from a blend of polyvinyl chloride and polyurea, Foamex board has a flat, non-porous surface that is highly suitable for digital flatbed printing. The material allows for good ink adhesion and can be easily worked with conventional cutting tools, paints and prints.
Foamex PVC board is also highly resistant to moisture absorption and will not warp or shrink when exposed to external environments. It exhibits excellent insulation properties, good rigidity and performs well when in contact with certain chemicals. PVC foam sheet is not, however, recommended for use in applications involving impact and can become brittle when exposed to temperatures below -10°C.
