What is the difference between PVC characters and acrylic characters?
1. Glowing effect
Acrylic has good light transmittance and can be used as luminous characters. The material is a bit like glass and can also reflect light; PVC is opaque, so it will not be used for luminous characters.
2. Weather resistance
Acrylic material is also relatively brittle and easily damaged. It is basically useless if you accidentally drop it on the ground, and it will be spent when it encounters some highly corrosive chemical materials. PVC is more durable and thicker.
3. External light grade
Acrylic sheet is the best of all plastic profiles, and it is also the easiest plastic material to process. It has high light transmittance, strong weather resistance, and can withstand high temperature, strong ultraviolet rays and sunlight; PVC board is hard and has poor transparency.
4. Scope of application
PVC characters are widely used in advertising production and are limited to engraved characters. Because PVC is opaque, there are still more acrylic characters in the selection of luminous characters.
5. Price comparison
Acrylic is high-grade, but it is also expensive and not durable; PVC is cheaper, relatively low-grade but more durable.
Advantages and disadvantages of PVC word:
Advantages: light weight, heat insulation, heat preservation, smooth surface, bright color, very decorative, wide decorative application.
Disadvantages: It is opaque, so it cannot be used to make luminous characters.
Advantages and disadvantages of acrylic sheet:
Advantages: High transmittance, low turbidity, good processability, excellent weather resistance, can withstand high temperature, UV light, strong sunlight exposure, solvent resistance and common chemicals
Disadvantages: The disadvantage of acrylic sheet is poor impact resistance.
