    Well, Polyvinyl Chloride and Polystyrene are entirely different plastics with different intended uses, but I (think) you could bond them to each other with the proper adhesive.

    styrene - harder
    pvc board like komacel or sintra - softer

    Thats the main difference. Both are used in the same way but PVC won't glue with styrene solvent. CA type glue works on both.

    Haven't seen this before and it's always fascinatinjg to see what others recommend. This is a lot more, and somewhat different to what I keep in the house. What makes me break out in cold sweats is when I run low on any of these -

    A4 sheets (/0.25 mm, /0.5mm, /0.75mm, 1mm, 2mm, 2.5mm)
    Assorted tubes from China. Not sure what I bought anymore, but it was a bunch of randomly-sized tubes and they've lasted me for 3 years now.
