PVC furniture board has the characteristics of anti-corrosion, moisture-proof, mildew-proof, low water absorption, drilling, sawing, routing, easy to thermoforming & hot bending, and so on. It is widely used in furniture, cabinet, bath cabinet, exhibition frame board, box substrates, indoor and outdoor decorations, building materials, chemical industry, and other fields.

PVC furniture board refers to the skin foaming board with PVC as the primary raw material, which can be made into PVC products according to the design and processing of wood furniture. The surface can be printed, embossed, laminated, with features of flame-resistant, moisture-proof, acid and alkali resistance, and long application life.

  2. It has the same processing as wood, and its processing performance is far better than wood
  3. It is an ideal substitute for wood, aluminum, and composite board

Application areas: 

  1. cabinet board, cabinet decoration, kitchen decoration.
  2. Bath cabinet board, bath cabinet decoration, bathroom decoration.
  3. Furniture board, bedroom furniture, living room furniture, bed board, bookcase board, wardrobe board.

The prospect of PVC furniture board

At present, the PVC industry is developing rapidly all over the world with broad prospects. All countries are optimistic about the potential of PVC and its benefits to the ecological environment. PVC is proving to the world that its role and status can not be replaced by any other products with its superior and unique properties. Social development needs it and environmental protection needs it. It is the inevitable trend of the progress of human civilization.

At a time when the PVC industry is booming all over the world, however, it is a pity that the market share of PVC furniture materials (including cabinets) in our country is less than 10%. Many consumers have not even heard of PVC as a furniture material, let alone know what PVC is. When German people have treated PVC as a high-grade, non-toxic, and pollution-free environmental protection material, why our Chinese domestic market share is still so small? Of course, there is the problem of consumption level, but it is mainly related to our consumers’ lack of correct understanding of PVC. It hindered the large-scale PVC furniture production. I believe that through the joint efforts of our companions and the maturity of the market, the PVC industry will surely reach a new level in the field of furniture.

PVC foam board: with the characteristics of anti-corrosion, moisture-proof, mildew proof, low water absorption, drilling, sawing, routing, easy to thermoforming, hot bending processing, etc., it is widely used in furniture, cabinet, bath cabinet, exhibition frame board, box core layer, indoor and outdoor decoration, building materials, chemical industry and other fields, advertising, printing, silk screen printing, spray painting, computer lettering, Electronic instrument products packaging and other industries

PVC rigid plastic board: it has excellent corrosion resistance, insulation and specific mechanical strength; After secondary processing, it can be made into the sulfuric acid (hydrochloric acid) tank (tank); Medical empty needle frame, chemical process frame; Water tank in public toilets; Processing products template, decorative plate, exhaust pipe, equipment lining, and other special-shaped products, containers. It is an ideal choice for chemical, building materials, decoration, and other industries.

In processing PVC wood plastic foam board, the equipment can be divided into the single-layer skin foam board production line and the three-layer coextrusion foam board production line according to the processing and board types. According to the production process, it is divided into the twin-screw extrusion and the single screw extrusion.

(1) Single-layer skin foam board production line and three-layer coextrusion foam board production line

The single-layer skin foam plate production line adopts one main extruder to directly squeeze into the die for extrusion foaming molding, which has simple production process control and convenient equipment disassembly and cleaning.

The three-layer coextrusion foam plate production line adopts two extruders, one is the main extruder, and the other is the auxiliary extruder. The two extruders are placed at a certain angle. The auxiliary extruder extrudes the melt, which is evenly distributed to the upper and lower layers of the melt of the main extruder through the die distributor. The two non-foaming hard surfaces are obtained through die extrusion and cover the surface of the high foaming core composite plate products. It features large surface hardness, high core filling, high foaming, and low cost. But at the same time, its disadvantages are distinct. The production process is complex, the control requirements of the compound layer process formula are accurate, and the equipment disassembly and cleaning are difficult.

(2) Single screw extruder and twin screw extruder

The production process determines whether a single-screw extruder or twin-screw extruder is used in production. The single-screw extruder has one more granulation process than the twin-screw extruder in terms of product quality. The melt plasticization uniformity and the mixing of various additives are more uniform, and the product quality is better than the one-step twin-screw direct powder extrusion. In terms of the production process, the single-screw extruder has more granulation steps, which means that one more extruder increases energy consumption, workforce, and material resources, and the production cost is much higher than that of a twin-screw extruder. In terms of production speed, the twin-screw process has few steps and fast extrusion speed, and the efficiency is much higher than that of the single screw process. With the continuous improvement of the wood-plastic formula and the constant optimization of the twin-screw structure, the plate quality produced by the twin-screw has reached the level of single screw production.

Due to the characteristics of low energy consumption and high efficiency of twin-screw extruder, twin-screw extruder has completely replaced single screw extruder in the production of PVC wood plastic foam board.

Three-layer coextrusion foam board production line
Three-layer coextrusion foam board production line

PVC wood plastic foam board is a PVC core layer foam board with continuous hard skin and closed cell structure in the core, which is chemically foamed by the “Celuka” method. It is a new structural plate with uniform thickness made of various mixed PVC raw materials, wood fibers, and functional additives through a special wood plastic extruder at a specific temperature and pressure. Its skin is shaped by the sudden cooling of the external mold to form a new plate with non-foaming skin and foaming structure in the core layer.

Wood-plastic composites have a wide range of applications. Wood-plastic composites can be used to replace wood or wood materials.
Building structural materials: indoor and outdoor planks, fences, building templates, moisture-proof partitions, stair boards, handrails, door and window frames, water buildings, road boards, etc
PVC wood plastic foam board has been successfully used as building formwork in urbanization projects, square tunnels, and other projects.

Automobile manufacturing: door trim panel, bottom plate, seatback, instrument panel, armrest, seat, base, top plate, etc.

Logistics: Transportation pallets and export packaging pallets of various specifications, warehouse bedding plates, various packaging boxes, transportation glass shelves, etc.

Gardening: outdoor tables and chairs, courtyard armrest and decorative board, flower box, open-air floor, waste box, etc.

Interior decoration: various decorative strips, decorative plates, mirror frame strips, curtain rings and decorative parts, movable shutters, ceilings, wall panels, etc

Wood-plastic composites can also be used in the packaging industry, furniture manufacturing, composite pipes, railway sleepers, etc. it is believed that the application field of wood-plastic composites will be further broadened in the coming future.
