Vinyl is the world’s most versatile plastic that has been incorporated in our daily lives for the past 50 years. It is known for its valuable properties and been used in all types of products. Vinyl proves it’s durability through vinyl piping that provides years water usage and sewage disposal. It also proves water resistance through the adoption of vinyl raincoats, rain boots, and shower curtains. And vinyl also proves its safety through saving lifes with vinyl IV bags or insulating electrical wires. We will talk about what Vinyl Wall Panels are and what they can do.
What are Vinyl Wall Panels?
Vinyl has been adopted into many forms due to its useful properties. Since vinyl is durable and water resistant, it is the perfect solution for environments that are rough and wet. Vinyl Wall Panels are water resistant, seamless, panels that attach directly to studs to form a wall. Most other building materials require additional material, or a multiple step installation process. Vinyl Wall Panels are the simplest and quickest installation process.
Why are Vinyl Panels unique?
For the longest time, buildings that dealt with humidity on the walls had to resort to using FRP (Fiber Reinforced Panels), which were not an effective solution to withstand humidity. Their weakness was the requirement for an OSB, which is commonly wooden. The wooden OSB is susceptible to water vapor penetration and mold formation. Vinyl Panels were created because the inefficiency of FRP was noticed and complained about by the contractor industry. Vinyl panels were designed in every aspect to do what FRP couldn’t, being completely water resistant and also easier to install.
How is Vinyl Panels installed?
Without needing any other material, the panels are screwed into the stud walls. The tongue and groove of each panel creates a seamless surface and also speeds up the installation process by allowing easy alignment.
Are Vinyl Panels durable?
Vinyl may be one of wall material options that have the longest lifespan. Vinyl itself is chemical resistant, mold resistant, anti-bacterial, fully water-resistant, and won’t delaminate. Since Vinyl wall panels do not require additional materials like adhesive, backing, grout, or sealant, it experiences less wear and doesn’t need to be replaced.
What are Vinyl Wall panels used in?
In industries such as carwash, food processing, beverage processing, indoor growing, farming, meat processing, and more.
