Other than that, the manufacturing process of the PVC foam board machine is similar to all PVC foam board machines except for some alterations depending on the specific design of the machine as well as the desired characteristics of the PVC foam boards.
A PVC foam board machine is capable of manufacturing myriads of products, each tailored to certain applications and density requirements. However, the most significant products manufactured by PVC Foam Board Extrusion Machine are:
- Furniture Boards
With a density of around 0.55, PVC foam boards are suitable for furniture applications. Furniture boards are not only lightweight but also sturdy.
The PVC foam board used for furniture board is laminated with the help of PVC film or PET film to give the boards desired colors and patterns. The furniture foam boards are processed by a hot-glue PUR lamination machine or a cold-glue PVC lamination machine.
In addition, the furniture boards manufactured by PVC foam board machines are ideal for constructing various furniture pieces, including cabinets and shelves.
Figure 5: Furniture Boards Manufactured by PVC Foam Board Machine
- Construction Boards
PVC foam boards, which have high density, usually around 0.8 to 0.9 are most suitable to be used for construction purposes. These construction boards are also known as crusted boards.
Such boards offer excellent durability and strength, which contributes to the longevity of these boards. In addition, the robustness of these boards makes them suitable for various building applications, including wall cladding, insulation panels, and false ceilings.
Figure 6: Construction Boards
- Advertising Boards
The advertising industry usually utilizes boards consisting of lower density, which makes the PVC foam boards with 0.35 density suitable for the respective industry. These advertising boards are also known as free foam boards or KT boards.
The surface of these boards is not only lightweight but also smooth, making it easy to print on. In this way, advertising boards can be utilized in various promotional materials, including exhibition boards, signs, and displays.
Figure 7: Advertising Boards Manufactured by PVC Foam Board Machine
PVC foam boards can be printed with the help of 3-D printing machine. Through this machine, the ink can be easily applied to the PVC foam boards, promoting similarity to printing on paper or non-woven sheets. Moreover, PVC foam boards can be recycled, which means you can use them to create new PVC foam boards, which is a widely recognized application in advertising boards.
To meet the specific requirements and capabilities of the production process, various kinds of PVC foam board machines are currently roaming in the market. However, the most common types are:
- Single-layer PVC Foam Board Extrusion Machine
To produce a single-layered PVC foam board, the production line only has one main extruder which is 80/156cm or 80/173cm or 92/188cm and is typically known as conical twin screw extruder. This extruder can produce crusted PVC foam board or free foam board depending on the temperature of water in the die head.
Figure 8: Single-Layer PVC Foam Board Extrusion Machine
Single layer PVC foam board extruding machine is the recommended choice for a market centered on advertising boards.
- Three-layer PVC Foam Board Extrusion Line
Comparing the single layer WPC foam board extrusion line and three layers WPC board extrusion line, it is found out that the latter involves two main extruders along with an additional 65/132cm extruder as co-extruder.
One of the advantages of using a three-layer production line is that it allows the use of recycled material in the middle layer, while making use of the virgin material for the outer layers, saving huge costs for you.
To get a colorful board, you can also add different color powders into the co-extruder, which helps in changing the color of the surface.
Because of the PVC surface the PVC foam boards manufactured more three-layer PVC foam board machine are much more rigid than single-layer PVC foam boards. The PVC surface of the three-layer PVC foam boards is also much smoother and shinier.
The popularity of the PVC foam board machine generally varies from region to region, but there are two countries where the PVC foam board machines are soaring – India and Pakistan.
Both of these countries have growing construction and advertising industries, which is why PVC foam board machines have gained popularity in these regions.
In addition, the cost-effectiveness and versatility of these PVC foam board machines also contribute to their increased utilization by India and Pakistan. These boards are also capable of replacing wooden boards, traditional wooden door panels, and other materials in various applications.
PVC foam boards laminated with PVC firm wood pattern show close resemblance to the real wood, which serves as a good alternative to natural wood, proving not only cost-effective but also provides myriads of wood pattern options. Since the products are environmentally friendly, they can be recycled efficiently.
Comparing PVC foam boards with wooden boards or plywood, we have identified various reasons why PVC foam boards take the lead.
- Lightweight and Durable: PVC foam boards are generally lighter in weight and more durable as compared to wooden boards or plywood, which makes them easier to install, handle, and transport.
- Moisture Resistance:PVC foam boards don’t absorb water, making them moisture-resistant. PVC foam boards don’t swell, rot, or warp when exposed to moisture, which makes them suitable for wet environments, unlike wood or plywood.
- Termite Resistance:Wooden boards or plywood can easily fall victim to termites whereas PVC foam boards don’t have such attraction to termites, making them a more durable choice in regions, which are prone to termite infestations.
- Fire Resistance:PVC foam boards are manufactured with fire-resistant properties, which makes them unable to catch on fire unlike wooden boards or plywood.
- Chemical Resistance:Wooden boards or plywood can easily corrode when exposed to corrosive environments. However, PVC foam boards don’t pose such calamities as they are highly chemical-resistant.
- Smooth Surface: Compared to wooden boards, PVC foam boards have smoother surfaces, which makes them ideal for laminating, printing, and painting.
- Ease of Fabrication: It is much easier to cut, mold, and shape PVC foam boards than wooden boards, which means that PVC foam boards can be easily glued, drilled, and routed according to the requirements.
- Low Maintenance: Minimal maintenance is required for the upkeep of the PVC foam boards, whereas wooden boards require regular maintenance, sealing, painting, or sealing to maintain their structural integrity and appearance.
- More patterns and colors: Because of the flexibility in changing the PVC firm, the PVC foam boards provides myriads of design possibilities. With just a quick swap of the film, you can open a whole new world of distinctive colors, textures, and patterns.
Figure 9: PVC Foam Boards in Different Patterns and Colors
Other than PVC foam board machines, various other machines can be used in the production process of PVC furniture boards or WPC (Wood-Plastic Composite) door panels.
Some of the commonly used auxiliary machines are:
- Lamination Machine
A lamination machine is used for the application of protective or decorative lamination to the surface of PVC furniture boards of WPC door panels. This lamination film has different pattern and color, and make the PVC foam board look more beautiful and elegant.
Figure 10: Lamination Machine
- Printing Machine
Screen printers or UV ink printers are the printing machines, which are primarily utilized for adding custom graphics, designs, or patterns to the surface of WPC door panels or PVC furniture boards.
These are generally used to print whimsical, artistic, and often customized designs.
- Edge Branding Lamination Machine
The exposed edges of the WPC door panels or PVC furniture boards are designed by applying edge strips or edge branding with the help of an edge branding lamination machine.
This machine helps in providing edge durability and protection when exposed to tough environments. In addition, the appearance of the PVC furniture boards or WPC door panels is enhanced.
- Vacuum Forming Machine
To mold and shape PVC sheets into complicated 3D contours or shapes, a vacuum forming machine is employed.
Figure 11: Vacuum Forming Machine
However, these machines are generally not usable for flat PVC furniture boards but you may use a vacuum forming machine for creating more intricate 3D components or designs.
- Engraving Machine
As the name indicates, an engraving machine is used to engrave or add textured patterns to the surface of WPC door panels or PVC furniture boards.
Figure 12: Engraving Machine
For decorative applications, this machine can come in handy as it helps in creating textured and unique finishes for your products.
PVC foam board machines and PVC sheet machines differ in their thickness. PVC foam board machine can make 4-40mm board, and PVC sheet machine produce 1-10mm thickness sheet along with a thin free foam board.
- Output of the product
PVC foam boards machine has bigger capacity due to its wall thickness is higher.
On the other hand, a PVC sheet machine is used to manufacture flat PVC sheets which is solid or transparent. The sheet can also stick on the PVC foam board.
- Soft and hard PVC Sheets
PVC sheet machines have the capability of producing both soft and hard PVC sheets. The choice of processing parameters along with the formulation helps in customizing the rigidity and flexibility of the sheets.
Figure 13: PVC Sheets
Soft PVC sheets are usually honed in the making curtains, flexible covers, and inflatable products, whereas hard PVC sheets are utilized for packaging, construction, and signage.
PVC sheet machine produce such PVC sheets that can easily adhere to PVC foam boards, which combines the power of both materials, making them more beneficial in the construction as well as advertising industries.
In such industries, the hard surface of the PVC foam boards provides the necessary protection, whereas PVC sheets serves as a primary layer for graphics.
PVC sheet machines are capable of producing sheets, which contain multiple finishes, including textured, glossy, and matte surfaces. This ability to customize is highly valuable in applications, which demand tactile qualities or specific visuals.
