Comparison of PVC against Polypropylene and Polyethylene. Industrial Protection.

In this article, we’ll shed light on the difference and going through a comparison of PVC against Polypropylene and Polyethylene. First, we will see all the characteristics of PVC industrial protection and then,  we are going, summing up them in the table so you can easily see the differences.

FLEXIBILITY

PROTECTION’S RESISTANCE TO IMPACT

  1. PVC HAS A HIGHLY ENHANCED ELASTIC BEHAVIOUR, AND CONSEQUENTLY, IT ALWAYS RETURNS TO ITS ORIGINAL SHAPE;
  2. OTHER MATERIALS LOSE COLOR IF TOO STIMULATED AND GET DEFORMED PERMANENTLY.Comparison of PVC against Polypropylene and Polyethylene

FUNCTIONAL DESIGN

HOW DESIGN COLLABORATES IN ABSORBING THE SHOCK

  1. THE SHAPE OF PVC PRODUCTS ALLOWS A WIDER AND FLAT IMPACT SURFACE HENCE THEY COMPLETELY OPPOSE TO THE FORKLIFT
  2. THE PE AND PP CYLINDRICAL SHAPE INVOLVES A RISK FOR THE FORKLIFT TO SLIP UNDER OR ABOVE THE PROTECTION

SHOCK ABSORBER

HOW THE PROTECTION ABSORBES THE IMPACT FORCE

  1. CERTAINLY, PVC RACK PROTECTION HAVE THREE SOFT PVC SHOCK ABSORBER AREAS
  2. OTHER PROTECTIONS ONLY HAVE ONE RUBBER PIECE IN RUBBER FOAM OR NONE OR RIGID NON-ABSORBER MATERIAL

SCRATCHES

OUR PVC IS RESISTANT TO ANY SCRATCHES

  1. PVC MATERIAL IS ENTIRELY PIGMENTED AND DIFFICULT TO SCRATCH THANKS TO ITS SPECIAL SURFACE
  2. OTHER MATERIALS ONLY HAVE THE UPPER LAYER PIGMENTED, AND SCRATCHES ARE EVIDENT AND NOT COVERABLE

Comparison of PVC against Polypropylene and PolyethyleneFAST INSTALLATION

QUICK AND INTUITIVE INSTALLATION

  1. TO INSTALL GLOBE’S PVC PROTECTIONS, YOU NEED THREE STEPS
  2. OTHER PRODUCTS HAVE A LARGE NUMBER OF PIECES TO ASSEMBLE, CAUSING A HUGE WASTE OF TIME

SECTIONS

INSTALLATION PROCESS OF PROTECTIONS

  1. GLOBE’S PVC PROTECTIONS ARE MADE OF MANY EQUAL PIECES AND CAN BE EXTENDED OR SHORTENED ALSO AFTER INSTALLATION
  2. OTHER PE AND PP PRODUCTS HAVE PIECES FOR INITIAL AND FINAL POSTS. THEREFORE YOU MUST REMOVE THE ENTIRE BARRIER TO MODIFY THEM

EASY CLEANING

CLEANING DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GLOBE’S PVC AND PE/PP

  1. GLOBE’S PVC SURFACE IS EASY CLEANING EVEN JUST WITH WATER
  2. OTHER MATERIAL LIKE PE AND PP ABSORBE DIRTY AND CONSEQUENTLY IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO CLEAN THEM

SAVE SPACE

DISTANCE FROM THE PROTECTED AREA AND IMPACT SURFACE

  1. GLOBE’S PVC PROTECTIONS HAVE COMPACT DIMENSIONS AND THEREFORE NEED SMALL DISTANCE FROM THE SHELVES
  2. OTHER MATERIALS NEED BIGGER DIMENSIONS AND A LARGER DISTANCE FROM THE RACKS TO PROTECT EQUALLY

FIRE RESISTANT

FIRE BEHAVIOUR ACCORDING TO UL-94

  1. GLOBE’S PVC TYPE IS V0; THIS MEANS THAT IT IS SELF-EXTINGUISHING IN CASE OF FIRE
  2. POLYETHYLENE AND POLYPROPYLENE ARE HB MATERIALS, CONSEQUENTLY, THEY DO NOT RESIST THE FIRE AND BURN IMMEDIATELY
