PVC - The Good Stuff

Posted on Thursday 28th May 2015 10:00 by PlasticMouldings

There are many benefits to using PVC as material for a vast number of products and we'd like to tell you what some of these are.

PVC is a modern alternative to traditional materials such as wood, metal, rubber and glass. Whilst being extremely strong PVC is also lightweight making it easy to cut to shape, mould and install. Durability is another outstanding feature being resistant to abrasion, chemical rotting, corrosion and shock. This compliments the cost effectiveness of PVC as it's already a competively priced material, is low maintenance and will last considerably longer than its alternatives.

Whe it comes to health and safety PVC is extensively researched and thoroughly tested. Results prove that it is non toxic and completely safe which is why it is such a popular choice when maufacturing items for use by children and adults alike. PVC is also known for its fire resistency as it is self-extinguishing. Whilst being difficult to ignite, PVC will burn when exposed to fire but when the ignition is removed it will stop burning.

PVC is an excellent insulator as it does not conduct electricity. This makes it the perfect material to use for voltage electrical insulation.

All round PVC is fast becoming the preffered material for an unlimited number of applications. Its versatility means it can be used as a beneficial replacement to, now less popular materials as well as being the perfect choice when it comes to designing new products and developing fresh solutions.
