PVC foam board is an expanded foamed PVC plastic sheet. The PVC foamed core structure makes it lighter, only one third of that of solid PVC sheet. Nevertheless, PVC foam board is not a soft material, but hard and flat.

PVC foam board has many advantages that wooden boards do not have, such as waterproof, mildew-proof, termite resistant, self-extinguishing from fire, can be colored, can have different surface textures, etc., which makes it an ideal alternative to wooden board. At the same time, it is highly processable, and it can be easily processed and handled with common woodworking tools.

PVC foam board is used as the substrate for wedding photo frame or art photo frame.
The traditional method is to print photos on copy paper, paste them on MDF boards, and mount them in frames. However, our customers print photos directly on our 5mm and 8mm thick PVC foam boards and frame them directly. The wedding photo frame and art photo frame made in this way have delicate printing effects, and are not easy to mold or discolor. It is aimed at higher-end consumer groups.
