PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)

PVC is the most widely used member of the vinyl family. Because of its exceptional corrosion resistance, it is ideally suited for applications where maximum chemical resistance is necessary. Its high strength-to—weight ratio, cost efficiency, ease of fabrication and strength make it the material of choice. It is chemically inert, water, corrosion, and weather resistant, tough, dent resistant, an electrical and thermal insulator and maintains its properties over a long period of time.

Characteristics

  • High strength to weight ratio
  • Excellent stiffness
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Good impact
  • Machinable, weldable
  • Low cost

Applications

Ducts, hoods, printed circuit boards, tanks, electrical boxes, fittings, pumps, laboratory equipment, filters, valves, plating machines, packaging machines
