There are many applications where you may need a material like glass, but lightweight and shatter-resistant. For instance, when designing an ice skating or ice hockey rink, a barrier will be needed to not only provide protection for the players and spectators, but also provide maximum visibility. While glass may fit the bill, it can shatter easily when hit. Plexiglass is a type of clear PVC sheeting that has high shatter resistance and is as clear as glass. In addition to that, plexiglass is light in weight and can be formed to create a curved surface. Another important property of clear PVC sheets is high insulation properties, which makes it suitable for window panes.
When placing an order for PVC sheets, you must obviously specify the thickness and size of the sheets. Most suppliers are able to cut the sheets to size based on your needs. Whatever the case, be sure to compare prices before making a decision.
