Vycom, a market-leading manufacturer of highly innovative plastic sheet products, has seen an uptick in demand for its Vintec® Clear PVC sheets, for use as a barrier material in retail, hospitality, education, and consumer-facing environments where safeguards are required. Vintec Clear is part of the Vycom CorrtecTM chemical- and corrosion-resistant family of materials, designed to meet requirements in industrial applications.
Vintec Clear PVC sheets offer superior ink adhesion for digital and screen printing processes, and can be thermoformed and cut. They can be used as a stand-alone barrier or as part of a system utilizing other Vycom products including Celtec® expanded or solid PVC sheets. The slight blue tint provides an immediately recognizable boundary that reduces unintentional contact because of its visibility.
The improved chemical resistance of this product line enables it to hold up better than traditional clear plastic materials against commonly used cleaning products and disinfectants. While cleaning solutions are effective in sanitizing plastic surfaces, some chemicals will cause polycarbonate and acrylic materials to haze, stress-crack and degrade over time. Vintec Clear PVC sheets are designed to stand up to these products for reliable, longer term use.
