Polyvinyl Chloride Production Cost Analysis 2020
Polyvinyl chloride or PVC is the world's third-most widely manufactured synthetic plastic polymer, after polyethylene and polypropylene. PVC comes in two primary forms:
- Rigid, where sometimes it is abbreviated as RPVC and
The rigid form of polyvinyl chloride, i.e. RPVC, is often used in construction for pipes and profile applications like for doors and windows. Polyvinyl chloride is also used in making bottles, non-food packaging, food-covering sheets, and cards, for example, bank or membership cards. The polymer is made softer and more flexible by adding plasticizers, which are known to be the most commonly used phthalates. Since PVC is a thermoplastic polymer, its properties are generally categorized based on rigid and flexible PVCs.
PVC is extensively used for insulation on electrical cables such as teck. The polyvinyl chloride utilised for this purpose needs to be plasticised. Flexible PVC coated wires and cables for electrical use have conventionally been stabilised with lead, but are now being replaced with calcium-zinc based systems. Polyvinyl chloride is a common, strong, yet lightweight plastic used in construction. When changes are made in PVC it becomes softer and more flexible. It is done by adding plasticisers. If no plasticizers are added to the polymer, it is known as uPVC or unplasticized polyvinyl chloride or just rigid PVC i.e., RPVC.
