The properties of PVC can vary in many forms, each with specific properties for different applications. Here are some common types of PVC:
Rigid polyvinyl chloride (uPVC)
Rigid PVC, also known as unplasticized PVC or uPVC, is a stiff and inflexible type of PVC. It does not contain plasticizers, so it is hard and durable.
Ideal for: Applications in the construction industry such as PVC pipes, window frames, profiles and other structural components.
Soft Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC-P)
Flexible PVC, also known as PVC-P or plasticized PVC, has plasticizers added to impart flexibility and elasticity. It is soft and easy to bend to fit various shapes.
Ideal for: Cable insulation, pipe, hose, medical equipment, flooring and upholstery applications.
Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC)
CPVC is a modified form of PVC obtained by chlorination. It has higher temperature and chemical resistance than standard PVC.
Ideal for: Applications requiring increased heat resistance, including hot water piping, industrial chemical handling and fire sprinkler systems.
Foamed PVC, also known as foamed PVC, has a cellular structure with air pockets, making it lightweight and versatile while being rigid.
Ideal for: Signs, Display Boards, 3D Printed Prototypes, CNC Machining and Injection Molding
Clear PVC is a transparent variant that allows light to pass through. It provides excellent clarity for unobstructed content rendering.
Suitable for: packaging, display cases, protective covers, transparent tubes
