Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)





Polyvinyl chloride or PVC is a very widely used plastic. At present, it is one of the most valuable products of the petrochemical industry. In general, more than 50% of man-made PVC is used in construction because PVC is cheap and easy to assemble. In recent years, PVC has replaced traditional building materials such as wood, cement and pottery in many areas. Despite the emergence of an ideal material in construction, there is still concern about the cost of PVC for the natural environment and human health. Polyvinyl chloride was introduced in the early 1930s, and due to its competitive price, physical, mechanical, and chemical properties, and its ability to be extensive processability and retrievablility, it has become a very common material in the construction materials and construction industries.
