No. That board is not PVC. Itís Polystyrene. PVC is short for Poly Vinyl Chloride.

PVC is the same material used in the plastic pipes you see at home dept, and is in no way the same as the insulation styrofoam.

You want this and you want it in 3mm-6mm for armor (or 1/8th to 1/4th of an inch in density). If you can't find it at home depot or Lowes, you can order it from amazon (Check reviews, especially ones with images), or local sign and/or plastic shops that carry it.

You can also pick up 6mm boards at Menards. They sell it as drop ceiling tile.

This is the number.
