PVC Boots Categories: How Many Do You Know?
Dowell is a professional pvc boots manufacturer in China. Do you know the categories that the PVC boots have? In this post, we will share with you the information abotu it.
1.What are PVC boots?
There are generally two types of PVC shoes. One is to add an appropriate amount of foaming agent to make a sheet when mixed with soft PVC. Then it is molded into foamed plastic to make foamed PVC shoes. The other is to use an injection molding machine with various molds to make PVC shoes. PVC shoes have good physical and chemical properties.
It is a plastic material characterized by lightness and substantial gloss but lacks texture from an intuitive perspective. PVC shoes are generally suitable for fashion shoes. Its lightness and thinness make the boots have a strong sense of three-dimensionality. This feature can highlight the unique smooth lines of fashion shoes and thus appear to be more upscale.

2.What is the difference between PVC and Rubber boots?
PVC material has higher mechanical strength and better corrosion resistance, which can effectively prevent static electricity. Also, this material is dust-proof. The PVC sole is non-slip, wear-resistant, soft and fold-resistant, cost-effective, and makes people feel relaxed and comfortable to wear.
The advantage of rubber material is that it is challenging, non-slip, and wear-resistant. More importantly, its various safety performances are stable. The disadvantage is that it is relatively heavy and has poor air permeability.
There is also a big difference between PVC rain boots and PVC rubber shoes. PVC rain boots are injection-molded, and the production efficiency is relatively high. The rain boots made of this material are beautiful in appearance, easy to control the craftsmanship, and the material price is relatively low.
But PVC rain boots also have the disadvantages of inadequate insulation and poor corrosion resistance. The rubber rain boots are die-casting. But it has good insulation and anti-corrosion properties, good moisture resistance, good breathability, and high comfort. However, the production efficiency of rubber rain boots is relatively low. The appearance of the finished product is somewhat rough, and the material price is relatively high.

3.How to choose the safety Boots?
Electrical workers are best to choose insulated safety shoes. This kind of safety shoe can insulate the feet from live objects and prevent electric shock injuries in the work of electricians.
It is best to choose anti-smashing safety shoes when working in construction, mechanical processing, and other industries. Such places often have objects falling or sharp objects scattered on the ground, which may cause smashing or stab wounds to the feet. Anti-smashing safety shoes can prevent falling objects from hurting your feet.
Anti-acid and alkali safety shoes are suitable for working environments with acid and alkali solutions and other related chemicals. This type of safety shoes can prevent burns to your feet. The bottom and surface of the anti-acid and alkali shoes have good acid and alkali resistance and permeability resistance.
When working in smelting, coking, and other workplaces, high temperature and radiant solid heat can cause burns and scalds on the feet. People who work in such places can use high-temperature-resistant safety shoes to protect their feet.
4.How PVC steel toe boots ensure the safety?
PVC steel toe boots have a steel toe cap to protect the toes. This kind of shoe has static pressure and impact resistance and can resist stab and smash. It can effectively protect your feet and prevent your toes from being injured. It is mainly suitable for heavy industries such as mining and machinery construction. The safety shoes are comfortable and do not affect daily labor operations.
Simultaneously, PVC steel toe boots must have a non-slip design, not only to protect people’s feet from injury but also to prevent accidents caused by operators being slipped. Before using this kind of safety shoes, check or test them carefully. In electrical and acid-base operations, damaged and cracked protective shoes are dangerous.
