What is PVC

Expanded PVC (polyvinyl chloride), also known as foam PVC, Trovicel® and Sintra®, helps you project a high-quality, professional image. Medium-weight and durable, expanded PVC can be installed and transported easily and is great for long-term indoor or short-term outdoor use. It is available in a variety of colors, and its matte finish reduces glare, hides fingerprints and can be cut easily into shapes, so you can create custom applications.

How To Care For Your PVC Sign

  • Do not leave PVC signs inside your car. Expanded PVC tends to warp when exposed to heat or sunlight for extended periods of time

  • Install PVC in sheltered, low-humidity areas when possible. It may absorb moisture and mildew when left in exposed outdoor locations

  • Without proper handling, PVC can be scratched

Advantages Of PVC Signs

Choosing PVC for your next business sign has many advantages. Sign and Design Depot offers a range of different materials to meet the needs of their customers. The following are some advantages to consider when you are ready to order your sign.

1. Durable

Virtually unbreakable, PVC is a highly durable sign material that can likely weather the inevitable falls and bumps that could occur. PVC can also be used for years without fading or cracking, making it the ideal sign material for those businesses that are planning for their longer term needs. 

2. Easy to Work With

PVC lends itself nicely to a range of different creative designs. Vibrant colors stand true when applied to PVC and hold their brilliance for the long term. Because PVC is such an easy material to work with, your sign could take less time to make than if you chose a different type of material. 

3. Lightweight

Since it is a plastic, PVC tends to be quite lightweight. This makes a PVC sign the ideal material when you want to be able to move it around at your discretion. Whether you envision a sign that alerts shoppers to a sale on a particular item that changes periodically or you want to direct them to an activity, PVC signs can be designed so that they can be moved around easily. 

4. Portable

Because they are so lightweight, PVC signs can be moved indoors and out to suit your needs. Of course, this lightweight advantage can be a challenge when the sign is being used outside during inclement weather. During periods of gusty wind and rain, it is best to bring a PVC sign indoors.
