Polyvinylchloride (PVC) – Rigid
PVC is one of the oldest and most commonly used thermoplastic materials. The material is a colorless polymer of vinyl chloride. PVC can have numerous properties and the characteristics can be altered by the use of additives. That is the case with rigid PVC. Approximately 50% of all rigid PVC manufactured in the world is used in construction.
An added benefit of PVC is its ability to mix with a wide range of additives such as stabilizers, lubricants, softeners, pigments, fillers, or static agents.
