PVC (polyvinylchloride)

PVC is an amorphous thermoplastic.

It is hard and brittle but can be made soft and malleable by adding plasticisers and stabilizers. In our machining, we mainly use the rigid (unplastificated) PVC-U.

PVC is often used in floor coverings, window profiles, pipes, for cable insulation and sheathing, and for records known as “vinyls” in English.

Properties

The properties of PVC are:
  • High chemical resistance
  • High rigidity
  • UV and weather resistant
  • Extensive standard delivery program
  • Inexpensive material

Applications

PVC can be used in the following areas:
  • Chemical tank and apparatus construction
  • Linings
  • Air conditioning and ventilation technology
  • Housing parts

Modification options

  • PVC-MZ (increased impact strength)
  • PVC glass (transparent rigid PVC with up to 88% light transmission)
  • PVC-C (post-chlorinated PVC, chemically highly resistant)
  • PVC-Kyrnit (pressed material for thicker plates)
