PVC demand is likely to increase at an average annual rate of 3.9% over the next years.

PVC is vastly superior to traditional materials used in ceiling tiles. PVC Ceiling Tiles are 100% waterproof and 100% sag proof. Because PVC Ceiling Tiles never sag or rust, they would never have to be replaced. The materials used in Acoustical Tiles such as fiberboard are known to contain dangerous materials like Asbestos. As acoustical tiles absorb water, they will start to become a harbor for dangerous molds and mildews. PVC repels water, never sags or rusts and will never need to be replaced.
