Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a flexible or rigid material that is chemically nonreactive. PVC offers excellent corrosion and weather resistance. It has a high strength-to-weight ratio and is a good electrical and thermal insulator. The most widely used member of the vinyl family, PVC may be cemented, welded, machined, bent and shaped readily.
There are three broad classifications for rigid PVC compounds: Type I, Type II, and CPVC. Type II and CPVC offer better heat and chemical resistance as well as greater impact resistance. These materials are considered “unplasticized” (rigid) because they are less flexible than the plasticized formulations. Type I, II, and CPVC are normally available in rod, sheet, slab, pipe, tubular bar, fittings and valves. “Plasticized” PVC is available in sheet, film, fittings, flexible tubing, and pipe.
The properties of PVC can be varied by the addition of fillers, plasticizers, stabilizers and colorants. Contact an Emco Industrial Plastics representative who can help you choose the correct material to meet the needs of your applications.
