What is Q-Board PVC

PVC Foam board or Q-board for short, is one of the most versatile materials on the market. This new generation of PVC Foam board is an extruded sheet which develops a naturally smooth surface upon cooling. Q-board, an Eco-friendly product, is self-extinguishing, water, moisture and mildew proof, resistant to termites and pests; Q Board also is also chemical resistant.  

 

 

 

 

Why Q-board PVC over traditional wood-based materials

The main advantages of Q-board are its smooth glossy finish, virtually zero water absorption, rigidity as well as sound and thermal insulation. Q-board can be worked like conventional timber and accepts drilling, screwing and nailing; heat folding, bonding, painting and edge banding making it an ideal alternative to traditional materials such as MDF, plywood and particle board.
