Bright White PVC Meets FM-4910
Vycom® introduced new fire-resistant Flametec Thermax XL PVC, a high-aesthetic sheet that meets FM4910 criteria and is ideal for various applications in demanding industrial and cleanroom environments. Thermax XL PVC is a next-generation material, delivering a bright white surface with outstanding aesthetic value for a variety of exacting production environments, including semiconductor, cleanroom and labs. Part of Vycom’s Flametec line of products, Thermax XL PVC is an expansion of Vycom’s extensive offerings under The AZEK Company.

Fire- and heat-resistant the sheet is ANSI FM-4910 compliant, certifying the material passes the Factory Mutual test for fire generation and smoke density. Contamination from smoke particulates and toxicity can cause damage to factory facilities, products and technologies and can endanger employees.

The material is ideal for fabricating laboratory and semiconductor cleanroom equipment including wet benches, process tools, furniture, cabinetry and chemical delivery systems. The PVC sheets are also ideal for crafting carts for acid or chemical transportation. Additionally, they can be used to assemble fume hoods, processing sinks and baths as well as chemical storage. Available in 0.125- through 1” thicknesses, the standard sheet size is 4’ x 8’; other sheet sizes are available by special order.

Vycom also supplies the welding rod, which uses the same formulation as the sheet, to maximize ease of fabrication. It can be welded, cut, shaped, fastened, and glued with the same workability as standard PVC. The intuitive workability of the material eliminates special training, reducing downtime and speeding project turnaround.
