Polyvinyl Chloride Resins
Polyvinyl Chloride Resin
PVC has extensive applications, including different types of pipes, agricultural films, synthetic leather, sheets, window frames, cable sheathing, hoses, and cable insulation.
Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is the world’s third most widely used plastic and is an attractive alternative to traditional materials such as glass, metal, wood, and other plastic materials because of its versatility, durability and cost competitiveness.
Satisfactory low-temperature melting and flow characteristics to facilitate processing
General hard sheets, bottle fittings, injection molds.
PVC is primarily produced as a rigid or unplasticized polymer (RPVC) or as a flexible plastic (uPVC). Flexible, plasticized or regular PVC is softer and more amenable to bending than uPVC due to the addition of plasticizers like phthalates such as diisononyl phthalate or DINP. Flexible PVC is commonly used in construction as insulation on electrical wires or in flooring for homes, hospitals, schools, and other areas where a sterile environment is necessary. Rigid PVC is also used in construction as pipe for plumbing and siding that is commonly called vinyl in the United States. It is also used for bottles, other non-food packaging, and cards (such as credit or membership cards). It is also used imitation leather, signage, phonograph records, inflatable products, and many applications where it is used as a replacement for rubber.
