Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a synthetic plastic polymer thermoplastic used in a broad range of applications. It appears in both rigid and flexible forms, and each form includes a number of different classifications. Additionally, while PVC is naturally brittle, manufacturers can add plasticizers to produce flexible materials. PVC plastic is the third most produced synthetic plastic polymer, with ~40 million tons produced every year.

Type 1 PVC – The normal impact grade material conforms to ASTM D 1784-81 Class 12454 B, Type 1, Grade 1. It features excellent chemical resistance in both acid and alkali solutions for temperatures up to a maximum of 140° F. All grades are self-extinguishing. Applications range from machined and fabricated parts to chemical processing and ventilation equipment.
Type 2 PVC – High impact grade material conforms to ASTM D-1784-81, Class 15344-D, Type II. Grade 1. Has excellent resistance to acids and alkaline solutions. Superior properties allow for cold rolling, vacuum-forming and ease of fabrication. Applications are primarily ventilation equipment, such as fume scrubbers, ducting and blower housings which require higher impact resistance than Type I provides.
