Features and applications


PVC is the world's third-most widely produced synthetic plastic polymer. About 40 million tons of PVC are produced each year. PVC comes in two basic forms: rigid and flexible. The rigid form of PVC is used in construction for pipe and in profile applications such as doors and windows.


Polyvinyl Chloride is readily available and relatively inexpensive.
Polyvinyl Chloride is very dense and thus very hard and resists impact deformation very well relative to other plastics.
Polyvinyl Chloride has outstanding tensile strength.
Polyvinyl Chloride is very resistant to chemicals and alkalis.


Polyvinyl Chloride has very poor heat stability. For this reason, additives that stabilize the material at higher temperatures are typically added to the material during production.
Polyvinyl Chloride emits toxic fumes when melted or subject to a fire.
