What is PolyVinyl chloride (PVC)?

PolyVinyl chloride, (IUPAC Polychloroethene) commonly abbreviated PVC, is a widely used thermoplastic polymer. In terms of revenue generated, it is one of the most valuable products of the chemical industry. Globally, over 50% of PVC manufactured is used in construction. In recent years, PVC has been replacing traditional building materials such as wood, concrete and clay in many areas.

There are many uses for PVC. As a hard plastic, it is used as Vinyl siding, magnetic stripe cards, window profiles, gramophone records (which is the source of the name for Vinyl records), pipe, plumbing and conduit fixtures. The material is often used in Plastic Pressure Pipe Systems for pipelines in the water and sewer industries because of its inexpensive nature and flexibility. PVC pipe plumbing is typically white, as opposed to ABS, which is black.

It can be made softer and more flexible by the addition of plasticizers, the most widely used being phthalates. In this form, it is used in clothing and upholstery, and to make flexible hoses and tubing, flooring, to roofing membranes, and electrical cable insulation.

Unplasticized polyVinyl chloride (uPVC)

uPVC is often used in the building industry as a low maintenance material, particularly in the UK, Canada and in the USA where it is known as Vinyl. The material comes in a range of colors and finishes, including a photo-effect wood finish, and is used as a substitute for painted wood, most obviously for window frames and sills when installing double glazing in new buildings or to replace older single glazed windows. It has many other uses including fascia, and siding or weatherboarding. The same material has almost entirely replaced the use of cast iron for plumbing and drainage, being used for waste pipes, drainpipes, gutters and downpipes.

Due to environmental concerns use of PVC is discouraged by some local authorities and in countries such as Germany and The Netherlands. This only concerns PVC rather than uPVC as it is the plasticizers in PVC that are the problem. uPVC does not contain these plasticizers.

We are proud to use only uPVC in all of our quality replacement windows.
