Vycom, a manufacturer of plastic sheet products, has seen an increase in demand for its Vintec Clear PVC Sheets for use as a barrier material in retail, hospitality, education and consumer-facing environments. The product is part of the Vycom Corrtec chemical- and corrosion-resistant family of materials.

The clear PVC sheets offer superior ink adhesion for digital and screen printing, and can be thermoformed and cut. They can be used as a stand-alone barrier, or as part of a system alongside other PVC sheets. The product features a slight blue tint to create a visible boundary, which the company says helps reduce unintentional contact.

The product line features improved chemical resistance, allowing it to hold up better than traditional clear plastic materials against commonly-used cleaning products and disinfectants, which can cause polycarbonate and acrylic materials to haze, stress-crack or degrade over time.
