PVC rodsPolyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
Various shapes produced from PVC provide excellent machining and fabrication characteristics for components used in corrosive environments. GF Harvel PVC shapes are suitable for a maximum service temperature use of 140°F. The use of this material can provide a cost savings advantage with well-balanced physical properties for many applications. GF Harvel's industrial grade PVC machining shapes are available in four standard colors: standard dark gray, white, black, and clear. Please reference specific profiles for available standard sizes and colors. A variety of custom colors are available upon request for specialty projects.
