PVC boards have medium density and are perfect for manufacturing furniture or decorative elements - indoors and outdoors. We also enjoy the colours and depending on your requirements and needs. We also manufacture mass coloured PVC boards. Care to learn our advice? Discover the advantages of PVC panels and how to use them.
Speaking of use, PVC boards are the best solution for construction, advertising, automotive, furniture manufacturing, interior & exterior design and more. Write us a quick message and ask us for details.
Mass coloured PVC boards
If you are familiar with Forex or Komatex boards, Komplast PVC panels are similar. But much more robust, denser and more rigid than these. By the way, the density of PVC panels varies between 0.55 and 0.65 g/cm³ and have a slightly porous core. Depending on the thickness, PVC boards have different properties. They are glossy and tough surfaces when the thickness is more than 12 mm; respectively, they are matte and smooth, of medium hardness when the PVC sheets are less than 12 mm thick. The standard PVC boards in stock are white, but there are also mass coloured panels upon request.
The advantages of PVC boards
Solid materials. The boards are non-toxic, inert and hypoallergenic.
They do not harm human health in any way. That's because they don't contain benzene or the aldehyde form.
Colour. Mass coloured PVC boards maintain their colour for a long time.
Resistance. The hydrophobic material in the composition makes the PVC boards weather-resistant.
Easy processing. It can be done using the same tools as in the case of wood.
They are flat. Suitable for digital printing, screen printing, dyeing, CNC processing, and furniture manufacturing.
Ecological products. 100% recyclable and reusable; the boards can be reused depending on the activity,
The materials are “Food Friendly”. So you can use them to create objects and furniture for the food industry.

The differences between the characteristics of
PVC sheets and wooden boards
|Plastic boards||Wooden boards|
|The effect on the environment||100% recyclable and reusable, partial consumption of wood dust resulting from wood processing||They are a disaster for the forests, requiring high-quality wood|
|Moisture resistance||Due to the polyvinyl chloride in the composition, PVC boards are waterproof||They absorb water|
|Chemical resistance||Resistant to acidic and alkaline solutions||Slightly affected by chemicals|
|Rot resistance||They have antisepsis (do not rot or mould)||Requires special treatment|
|Insect repellent||High resistance to insects and parasites due to the plastic in the composition||Requires special treatment|
|Resistance to cracks and distortions||No cracks appear, and they do not change their original shape||It cracks and distorts due to differences in temperature or humidity|
|UV resistance||PVC boards are resistant to ultraviolet rays||Slightly affected by UV rays|
|Resistant to natural and corrosive agents||High resistance||Low resistance|
|Fading||It fades hard||It fades easily|
|Lifetime||Very long, slightly dependent on maintenance. Regardless of the colour, PVC plastic panels preserve their basic properties and have an average lifespan of 30-50 years.||Average, very dependent on maintenance.|
|Fire resistance||PVC boards are flame retardant - do not maintain the flame, and they are self-extinguishing, Class B reaction to fire.||Requires special treatment.|
