Vycom introduces Vintec Clear PVC Sheets

19 January 2021: Vycom, a market-leading manufacturer of highly innovative plastic sheet products, has introduced Vintec Clear PVC sheets. This PVC sheet can be used as a barrier material in retail, hospitality, education and consumer-facing environments where safeguards are required. Vintec Clear is part of the Vycom Corrtec 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 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.

Vycom, Mimaki USA and CWT Worktools USA recently came together to create portable custom barriers for use by the debate team from Hebron High School in Carrolton, Texas. Vintec Clear 1/4 sheets were printed on the Mimaki JFX200-2513EX flatbed printer using LUS-120 inks and a six-layer print technique. The material was cut on a CWT Apex digital flatbed cutter to create desk shields that can be quickly assembled and disassembled for easy portability during competitions.
