PVC Type I is a normal impact, corrosion-resistant material offering an excellent chemical resistance. It is highly recommended for applications where acid and alkalies are in high concentration, normal working temperatures are relatively low, 140°F or below, and the application environment is not subject to excessive physical abuse.

For a similar product with greater heat resistance (up to 200°F) see CPVC.

PVC Type II is a uniquely adaptable polyvinyl chloride displaying excellent thermoforming capabilities, contour definition and surface texture. Available finishes include matte and glossy. Type II is fashioned in the form of homogeneous sheets.
