PVC Type 1 sheet has a range of continuous use temperatures from 32° F (0° C) to 140° F (60° C). When comparing it to other amorphous materials Type I PVC is a more chemically resistant, non-flammable, lower-cost plastic for use in a variety of applications. It has high impact strength suitable for fabrication, machining, welding and bonding applications. PVC Type 1 demonstrates good resistance if exposed to chemicals or oxidizing media, and can withstand a wide variety of harsh industrial and mechanical environments. It can be readily cut, drilled, routed, tapped.
