Poly Vinyl Chloride Resin or PVC Resin as it is popularly called, is a thermoplastic Resin which can be softened on reheating. A common term for this commodity polymer is Vinyl. Often available in the form of a powder, PVC granules are highly resistant to oxidisation and degradation caused by atmospheric reaction.
PVC Resin Nature
PVC is an acronym for polyvinyl chloride. For the production of rubbers and plastics this material resin is often used. For the production of thermoplastics white powder PVC resin is commonly used. Blood bags, windows, and pipes are few of the products made with PVC resin. PVC has a vital uses in many items widely used in day to day life.
PVC Resin Uses
There are so any uses of PVC resin in preventing medicinal and healthcare acquired infections, Medical devices which contains PVC can be easily sterilised using methods such as steam, radiation etc. Its key properties include flexibility, resistance to tears, scratches and kinks.
It has various technical advantages viz: include PVC’s abrasion resistance, light weight, good mechanical strength and toughness which are generally used in building and construction applications. Due its flexibility it can be cut, shaped, welded and joined easily in a various of styles. Its light weight reduces manual handling difficulties.
For transportation of drinking water PVC pipes are a safe choice. This is due to their high degree of inertness and resistance to corrosion. By helping providing clean water, PVC made pipes are beneficial to public health and society at large.
