- Jan 05, 2019-

The difference between PVC plastic wood and PE plastic wood:

1. Different resin components, PVC plastic wood is polyvinyl chloride, PE plastic wood resin is polyethylene

2. From the price point of view, PVC plastic wood foam board is cheap, PE plastic wood expensive

3. In terms of weight: PE wood plastic material is lighter, PVC wood plastic material is heavier.

4. In terms of application range, PVC wood plastic foam board is hard and brittle, PE plastic wood is softer and more tough, but PVC wood plastic foam board is more widely used, mostly used for interior decoration design, and is not flammable. High strength, weather resistance and excellent geometric stability are also related to its cheapness. The application of PE is far less extensive. PE is softer and has a waxy feel. It is lighter than the equivalent plastic. Multi-preservative film, vest-type plastic bag, plastic food bag, bottle, bucket, kettle, etc.


Performance, not heat resistant, use at <45 °C

In application, PVC is hard and brittle, PE is softer and tougher, but PVC is more widely used, non-flammable, high-strength,

Weather resistance and good geometric stability are also related to its cheapness.

The application of PE is far less extensive. The PE is softer and feels waxy. It is lighter than the equivalent plastic. It is applied with multiple plastic wrap, vest plastic bag, plastic food bag, bottle, bucket, kettle and so on.


Hygienic performance: PVC has chlorine, it will release chlorine gas when heated, and the water in the air will reflect, produce hydrogen chloride gas, which is poisonous to human body, and PE only contains two elements of carbon and hydrogen, which is hygienic and non-toxic.
