Calibrated Foam PVC Sheet

Multipurpose building board.

Combining an exceptionally light weight core with a hard flat durable surface, this calibrated PVC foam is a superb all round board which provides a cost effective alternative to traditional wood based construction materials.

Manufactured from modern plastic technology it offers dimensional stability, will not rot, mould or corrode, and, has a high insulation value and fire performance.

Suitable for both internal and external building applications, this product is also available in a weatherable UV grade.
