Gatorboard vs. Sintra PVC Board | Different Pros, Cons, and Uses



  1. Sintra is a trade name, and like many trade names, it is currently applied to a very different product than it originally was. Original Sintra was very similar to current Gatorboard, but had a more flexible surface, which was a thin layer of melamine. The inner surface could be removed, allowing fairly tight convex bends of the opposite (outer) surface. Oddly enough, the trade name Gatorboard has likewise been "recycled". Little did I know, some years back when I need some original Gatorboard, and found the current foam core stuff, which is useful enough, just not for that project. I am just too old for all of this marketing mumbo jumbo.
