Why is PVC Film Popular?

Apr. 22, 2021

PVC Film Suppliers share with you the reasons about the popularity of PVC film, hope it will be helpful to you

I. Beautiful appearance

The surface and shape of goods will give people the first impression. In this sense, the market outlook for PVC film is very promising. And in fact, with the development of the times, PVC is also gradually winning people's hearts with its good performance, simple process and many other advantages, has been more and more accepted and recognized as the darling of the construction industry, PVC can be seen everywhere in people's daily life. PVC can not only express the colors of nature, but also the colors of people's fantasies.

II. Perfect structure

PVC, named Polyvinylchlorid, is mainly composed of polyvinyl chloride, with other ingredients added to enhance its heat resistance, toughness and ductility. The top layer of this surface film is lacquer, the middle layer is polyvinyl chloride, and the bottom layer is a back-coated adhesive. It is one of the most popular and widely used synthetic materials in the world today.

PVC can be divided into soft PVC and hard PVC, with hard PVC accounting for about 2/3 of the market and soft PVC accounting for 1/3. soft PVC is generally used for flooring, ceilings, and leather surfaces, but its use is limited by the fact that soft PVC contains softener, which makes it brittle and difficult to store. Hard PVC does not contain softener, so it is flexible, easy to shape, not easy to brittle, non-toxic, non-polluting, and has a long shelf life, so it has great development and application value. The essence of PVC is a vacuum blister film, which is used for surface packaging of various types of panels, so it is also called decorative film and adhesive film, and is used in many industries such as building materials, packaging, and medicine. Among them, the building materials industry accounts for the largest share of 60%, followed by the packaging industry, and several other industries with small applications.

III. Rigorous process

There are two very important reasons why PVC is widely used in the building materials industry.

One is the unique performance of PVC, and the other is the low input and high output of PVC. So, how can PVC have these two advantages? Let's find the answer from its production process.

The production process of PVC is not complicated, the ordinary production line generally consists of rolling machine, printing machine, back coating machine and cutting machine, mainly through the rolling machine of the direct motion mixing, roller rotation and high temperature rolling production of film thickness of only 0.3 mm to 0.7mm, the production of the same time and through the printing machine in the front of the film printed on the color, through the back coating machine in the back of the film attached to a layer of back coating. Don't underestimate this layer, it is an important guarantee for the quality performance of PVC films. The back coating is made up of special materials, which is a kind of high energy affinity agent, and it is because of this back coating that PVC film can be tightly fused with medium density board or other boards for ten or even fifteen years without opening glue. The biggest problem of ordinary laminating film is that it cannot solve the problem of film peeling. Since the whole production process is carried out at high temperature, this makes the PVC Film highly resistant to light and fire, which guarantees the high quality of the PVC film.

IV. Extraordinary Performance

What else is the difference between PVC film and ordinary paste film? Ordinary paste film is directly applied to the surface of the board with glue at room temperature, so after one or two years, the film will easily fall off. PVC film, on the other hand, is applied to the surface of the panel with a special vacuum lamination machine at 110 degrees, so it does not peel off easily.

Although PVC film has excellent quality assurance, some people may say that PVC is a chemical product after all, it is not as good as natural materials, it cannot exclude toxicity and odor, and it cannot avoid causing harm to the environment. This is not the case, because the raw materials used in the production of PVC film in Germany are specially refined, and toxic substances are completely extracted, so PVC is completely non-toxic and tasteless, and does not stimulate the human skin or respiratory system in any way. By using PVC film as a decorative film, people can use more medium density board, particle board, plywood and fiberboard, reducing the amount of wood used and thus the damage to forests and the environment. From this point of view, PVC film has made a great contribution to the protection of the ecological environment.


V. Bright future

At present, the PVC industry is developing rapidly all over the world with a broad prospect, and all countries are optimistic about the potential of PVC and its benefits to the ecological environment.
