Q-Board (PVC) vs Wood Based Materials

Searching for an alternative to wood based materials? Q-Board (PVC) is an affordable and versatile material, that should be considered for your next project. 

 

 

 

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.

Advantages of LED

LEDs bring several advantages to the lighting industry, including high efficiency and effectiveness when compared with traditional lamp sourced lighting. LED’s are extremely durable and robust and require little to no maintenance.  

  • Long-Lasting: LED Bulbs are proven to last up to 10 times longer than compact fluorescents, and far longer than traditional incandescents.
  • Durable: LED’s do not have a filament, meaning that under a circumstance in which a regular bulb would be damaged or broken, LED’s will not shatter.
  • Environmentally Friendly: No mercury or other hazardous materials are used in the manufacturing of LED’s, All LED’s (if needed can be disposed of safely).
  • Cost Efficient: LED light bulbs use only 2-11 watts of electricity (1/3rd to 1/30th of Incandescent or CFL) and these bulbs last for years so energy is also saved in maintenance and replacement costs
