PVC stands for? Polyvinyl chloride ??? In Spanish it means "polyvinylchloride", which is a plastic that arises from vinyl chloride. PVC is also known as vinyl. PVC is obtained by the combination of ethylene and chlorine.
These materials have the common denominator to be formed by macromolecules called monomers. Through a chemical process called polymerization, these molecules line up in long chains, giving rise to a new material called polymer.
In addition, within the polymeters PVC is classified as a thermoplastic, or, in other words, it is a material that we can? Modify ??? (bend or weld) by temperature. Precisely this is one of the most valued properties of PVC, since its thermoplastic capacity allows it to be shaped in infinite ways or weld it, when subjected to a certain temperature. Once cooled, the PVC regains its strength and strength while maintaining the new format.
Polyvinyl chloride (PVC or vinyl), economical and versatile, is used in a variety of applications in construction and construction, health care, electronics, cars and other sectors, in products ranging from pipes and liners, blood bags and tubes, even cables and cable insulation, windshield system components and more.
PVC is a material highly valued by professionals in the construction sector for being a bad driver, that is, for its insulating capacity. This makes it perfect for use in profiles, insulating plates, covers for electric cable, indoor and outdoor floors, etc.
Beyond its insulating properties and versatility, PVC is recognized for its durability since it is classified as a product of long life, with a period of use of up to 50 years. When used in the manufacture of windows, for example, PVC profiles withstand the weather conditions for years without maintenance on the profile surface. In addition, it provides high resistance to impact, wear or corrosion. Thanks to these characteristics, PVC is an ideal material for coastal areas with a saline environment.
