PVC - Polyvinyl Chloride
PVC is one of the most versatile thermoplastics. It has excellent:
- Strength-to-weight ratio
- Superior flame resistance
- Chemical resistance
- Dielectric properties
- Good tensile
- Flexural and mechanical strength
- Low moisture absorption
- Dimensional stability
Rigid PVC is a high corrosion resistant material with normal impact properties and is used where chemical attack is the major concern.
PVC is relative low cost and makes it the material of choice for the most demanding applications. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is an amorphous thermoplastic material.
PVC has great UV resistance, can be glued & painted.
The maximum service temperature for PVC is 60°C.
