The most important features of PVC
PVC has many different features that makes it suitable for many uses.
Some of the features are:




1.The price is right

2.high durability
As we mentioned, PVC is a type of plastic and you know that plastic has high durability and in some cases it remains up to hundreds of years in the environment.
But unfortunately this durability costs high to the environment.
Now that because PVC is made of plastic and has high flexibility we can use it in many industries. One of the most obvious uses of it, is in home piping that It has taken the place of metal piping.



3.high flexibility of PVC
We can change the shape of PVC in any shape that we want. This material can be reshaped easily by heat and become to any shape that we want and this feature makes it suitable for construction and production of various appliances. Also the formability of it caused it to be used in CNC machines and form it in any shape desired.




Application of PVC covering
In the following, it is necessary to get acquainted with the applications of PVC covering which is a thin layer of PVC that gets stretched or glued on products and among the types of these applications, the following can be mentioned:

•False Ceiling

One of the most important uses of PVC is in wood and decoration industries.
As mentioned, one of the uses of PVC is in wood industry. The best and the most receptive of PVC is MDF. Raw MDF (chipboard) normally doesn’t get used much because of its simplicity of design and color. PVC covering can solve this problem easily.
Usually we use PVC coverings on MDF in 2 ways. First one is the large coverings that changes the appearance of MDF entirely. The second one is narrow and small strips that gets used in sides of the MDF and wooden structures.
Of course the gluing of PVC on the MDF isn't an easy job. First consider that the most important and most used of PVC coverings in wood industries is membrane coverings. So when you hear the word membrane it means the PVC layers that



stretch on MDFs. PVC layer get glued on MDF by a special glue named membrane.
PVC is one of the most usable covering in wood industry(specially in cabinet making). PVC has higher durability than other coverings. You just need to print your desired design and color on it by CNC machine. Then the PVC layer is glued on the MDF by a special vacuum machine and membrane glue.



Also when using MDF sheets(specially in cabinets) the sides of it gets covered by narrow strips of PVC. PVC has high durability against heat, moisture and scratches. Variety of design and color of this strips is high it can almost used in any type of MDF whit any coverings.

The last word:
PVC has penetrated to such an extent in various industries, including the wood industry, that we can safely say that there is no substitute for it (at least so far). PVC has low price, high durability an flexibility and it's abundantly available. The other important point is, it is easy to print any design and color on it. So there is no wonder why its use is increasing day by day.
