    Our distributors will no longer be carrying thin PVC (it just wont be produced anymore by the sounds of it) - anyone know of a good substitute material that is roughly same cost and can come in 4x8 sheets like 0.04" PVC?

    Thank you in advance!

    Depending on what you are doing with it, Styrene would probably be a good choice

    .04 styrene as well. Cost should be less too

    HDPE. Styrene will not hold up to sunlight as well as PVC or Hdpe. If indoors, styrene is probably your best bet as it is easy to get.

    Of course there is aluminum and acm as well.
