General Properties

  • Excellent transparency
  • Hard, rigid (flexible when plasticised)
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Long term stability
  • Good weathering ability
  • Stable electrical properties
  • Low gas permeability

Common Uses

PVC has been successfully used for pipes and fittings due to its chemical resistance, imperviousness to attack by bacteria or micro-organisms, corrosion resistance and strength. It is frequently used in food contact applications, especially frozen foods due to its low oxygen permeability and strong cold temperature properties. Other common uses include carpet backing, windows, water, shampoo and vegetable oil bottles, credit cards, wire and cable sheathing, floor coverings, synthetic leather products, coatings, and blood bags and medical tubing.
