It is produced in the USA and contains no heavy metals. The consistent white matte surface makes it excellent for direct printing or mounting, and it has excellent screw retention, nail hold and staple hold, to make for a wide range of finishing and fabricating options. Available up to 48" x 96" sheets.
Indoor longevity of 5-25 years, outdoor longevity of 6 months to 1 year.
It comes in a range of thicknesses. It has a smooth finish so it prints well. It's a solid board so it's difficult to dent.
While rigid, it is flexible, so larger graphics in thinner sheets may not stay flat. PVC expands and contracts with temperature changes, so while it can go outdoors, there are better materials for those applications. Temperature changes can cause mounted graphics to come loose, so direct printing or vinyl graphics are recommended. PVC isn't eco-friendly.
Indoor and outdoor signs. Exhibit, POP and trade show graphics that are flexible or cut into special shapes.
