PVC Overview
What is PVC plastic?

PVC (polyvinyl chloride) plastic is a lightweight, durable, and relatively cost-effective material that is easy to machine and can be formed into a variety of shapes and sizes. Type 1 PVC is a rigid, non-flexible form of PVC, often used in construction and manufacturing applications. It is very durable and has good resistance to most chemicals and moisture. Type 2 PVC is a flexible form of PVC, often used in applications that require a flexible material, such as electrical wiring and tubing.

 

What is foamed PVC?

Foamed PVC is a type of polyvinyl chloride plastic that has been expanded to produce a foam-like construction instead of a solid sheet. This lightweight and durable material is ideal for many indoor and outdoor applications: foamed PVC can be used for signs, displays, furniture, and wall cladding. Foamed PVC is available in various colors, textures, and thicknesses, and is often used as a replacement for wood and other materials.

Is PVC good plastic?

PVC is a versatile plastic known for its excellent flame resistance, impressive strength-to-weight ratio, durability, and low moisture absorption. PVC is used in a variety of applications ranging from food packaging and home construction to agriculture, piping, and irrigation.

What is PVC plastic used in?

PVC is commonly used in the building and construction industries for piping, cable insulation, window frames, siding, and other applications - its excellent weatherability, durability, relatively low cost, and resistance to chemicals and flame make it an extremely versatile plastic.

What kind of plastic is PVC?

PVC, also known as Polyvinyl chloride, is a versatile amorphous commodity thermoplastic made from chlorine and ethylene. PVC is one of the most widely used plastics due to its combination of relatively low cost and good mechanical, insulation, and electrical properties.

Is PVC the same as plastic?

PVC is a widely used plastic that is made when molecules of vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) are polymerized and combined with additional additives. PVC is used in food packaging, home construction, agriculture, piping, irrigation and other applications that require excellent flame resistance, a great strength-to-weight ratio, and low moisture absorption.
