White foamed PVC is also known as white sheet foam or PVC foam board. This type of PVC consists of a hard foam core, which is laminated on both sides with quality paper. Foamed PVC is 2 x as light, but just as strong as solid PVC.
Foamed PVC can often be seen in the advertising world. For example, think of displays, billboards and stand material. White PVC foam is also very popular with printers, model builders, artists and hobbyists. Foamed PVC is also widely used within the construction industry because it insulates both sound and heat and makes an excellent covering for walls and ceilings.
In our range of white PVC sheets, you will find various thicknesses ranging from 2 mm to 19 mm. The colour is similar to RAL 9003. This colour code is an indication only.
PVC white foamed sheet is easy to machine. The top layer offers excellent adhesion for various printing and painting techniques. You can drill, saw, glue, cut, paint and mill white foamed PVC sheets.

White PVC sheets require little maintenance. With normal use of the sheet material (for example for indoor applications) in a relatively clean environment, you only need to clean the sheet once or twice a year. View our tips for cleaning PVC.
Useful to know:
PVC is a static plastic that attracts dust quickly. Treat the panel with a special antistatic cleaner for plastic sheet.
At Plasticsheetshop.co.uk we stock a large range of white PVC foam sheets, also known as foam board or Foamex. The sheet thickness varies from 2 till 19 millimetres thick and the sheets have a slightly textured top layer. Foamed PVC weighs 50% less than solid PVC and they are very easy to work with. It is an ideal material for any do-it-yourselver. Foamed PVC sheets are UV resistant, but only suitable for indoor applications. The sheets come with a protective film on one side to protect them during transport and handling. PVC foam sheets are also available in a variety of colours. The foamed PVC sheet will be cut to size and will be ready for delivery within 48 hours.
PVC is short for Poly Vinyl Chloride and can be divided into two different kinds: foamed PVC and solid PVC. Solid PVC is an engineering plastic with a good chemical resistance and it has electrically insulating qualities. Foamed PVC is significantly lighter than solid PVC and consists out of a foamed core with two dense top layers. The sheets are widely implemented in the advertising industry, since they are suitable for printing and painting. Both solid and foamed PVC are easy to handle: gluing, painting, sawing, cutting and drilling offer no problems. Additionally, both versions are easy to clean and don’t need a lot of maintenance. We stock the necessary cleaning products in our online shop.
