Polyvinylchloride (PVC)

Polyvinylchloride (PVC) is an amorphous commodity. In the production of PVC you can use different polymerization methods and at the compounding stage you can influence the properties more than with any other plastic, ranging from very soft (e g garden hose) to rigid and tough (e g waste pipes). PVC is commonly distinguished as one of three different types: rigid, plasticized and latex.

PVC Properties

  • Low material cost and density
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Does not absorb moisture
  • Resistant to microorganisms
  • Good long-term strength
  • Food approved grades are available
  • Self-extinguishing (when not plasticized)
  • Good UV resistance
  • Hydrochloric acid is formed during thermal decomposition (fire/burning)
