Description

Corrugated polyvinyl chloride (PVC) sheet which is an all-round durable roofing solution, combining high resistance to chemicals, fire and impact. PALRUF® endures harsh chemical environments where other roofing materials will quickly become corrode, making it ideal for roofing, siding and cladding applications in industry, agriculture and construction. It is available in a variety of clear and opaque colours and many profiles. It can be easily installed in DIY applications around the house using ordinary tools.

Features/ Benefits:

  • High chemical resistance.
  • Weather and UV resistant.
  • High fire resistance.
  • Available in PALRUF® HYG: Active antimicrobial hygiene.
  • Will not rust or corrode.
  • Suitable for arched roofs and curved walls.
  • High impact: Resists breakage.
  • Easily handled, quickly installed.
  • Requires minimum maintenance.
  • Profiles can be matched to existing corrugated metal profiles.

Applications:

  • Construction: Coastal construction, public buildings, parks, sports and recreation facilities.
  • Industry: Chemical and pharmaceutical plants, ports, pulp and paper plants, power stations, mines, metal processing facilities.
  • Agriculture: Greenhouses, cow sheds, henhouses, pigpens, barns and machinery sheds.
  • Do-It-Yourself: Sun houses, skylights, garages (carports), porches, patio enclosures, verandas, pool enclosures, awnings, partitions and gazebos (pergolas).
