What is PVC?
PVC, or Polyvinyl
chloride, is the third-most widely produced plastic. PVC is perfect
for construction applications because it is more effective than
traditional materials such as copper, iron or wood. PVC has a high
hardness and is very impact resistant. PVC's relatively low cost,
biological and chemical resistance and workability have resulted in
it being used for a wide veriety of applications. PVC demand is
likely to increase at an average annual rate of 3.9% over the next
What makes PVC a good
material for Ceiling Tiles?
PVC is vastly superior to
traditional materials used in ceiling tiles. PVC Ceiling Tiles are
100% waterproof and 100% sag proof. Because PVC Ceiling Tiles never
sag or rust, they would never have to be replaced. The materials used
in Acoustical Tiles such as fiberboard are known to contain dangerous
materials like Asbestos. As acoustical tiles absorb water, they will
start to become a harbor for dangerous molds and mildews. PVC repels
water, never sags or rusts and will never need to be replaced.
Is PVC as safe as other
more traditional ceiling tile materials?
PVC has Class A flame
spread and smoke developed index that's approved for all commercial
kitchens and dining areas.
