PVC accessories for drywall and veneer finishes
were developed by PLASTIC COMPONENTS, INC. to combat rust and protect corners
and edges from damage. Manufactured from high-impact resistant, lead free
PVC, they provide an excellent alternative to metal products and conform
to ASTM standards D3678 and C1047. All products shall be third party
tested to meet ASTM standard D4216-99 and be Canadian Code Compliant. Plastic
design with unique punch hole pattern, allows for positive bonding
of drywall mud and other finishes to the surface of the trim. Paint adhesion
is excellent with all products.
Designed for interior applications, these accessories
resist damage and static electricity. They will not rust. Metal accessories
placed against other metal objects can result in electrolysis, but with Plastic
Components, Inc.’s PVC accessories, these common problems are eliminated.
They may be stapled, nailed, screwed or glued into
place. Installation should be in accordance with ASTM C1047, and with
accepted industry practices and local building codes.

If cut, the product can be repaired with vinyl cement.
