A Versatile Material

"Printing is an evolving art and we pride ourselves in staying ahead of the curve--which all starts with the best ink-jet printers and consistent, high performance materials like Celtec." Stephen Scharfstein, owner and president of 2XL Printing.

Our Celtec Expanded PVC is notably used for a large range of projects with top applications including point of purchase displays, signage, storage, store fixtures, exhibits/kiosks, dimensional lettering and display boards. Fabricators and designers love working with Celtec because it is lightweight, easy to fabricate, paint and laminate. The smaller cell structure of Celtec Expanded PVC’s optimal density provides for edge finishing and superior screw & staple retention, while great fastening characteristics and fire properties make it easy to work with. Designers choose Celtec because they know the quality of their work will show through, every time.

Celtec Expanded PVC comes in a wide range of thicknesses and in a full line of standard colors, with custom colors available upon request.

Vycom’s Celtec Ultra White is the ultimate solution for your outdoor and indoor plastic material needs. Our advanced solid PVC formulation works well in outdoor applications where resistance to ultraviolet (UV) degradation and impact durability are critical. Performance tests indicate that Ultra White is up to eight times more resistant to UV damage and is both digital & screen printable. Celtec Ultra White is a brighter white material that is both thermoformable and die cuttable.
