PVC stands for Poly vinyl chloride and is a highly versatile plastic that is naturally white and hard, making it soft and flexible by adding lubricants.
Before the turn of the twentieth century, Russian chemists Ivan Stra Michelsenki and Fritz Klitsch from Germany both tried to use pvc in commercial products, but problems with the polymer’s performance, hardness, and sometimes fragility made their efforts futile. Finally, in 1926, Waldo Simone found a way to soften PVC by mixing it with other additives. The result was flexible materials that easily participated in the process.
PVC can be produced with all available methods for thermoplastics, such as: rotary coating methods (ball), immersion (gloves), and… using plastisol, or extrusion methods for the production of pipes, cables, Granule making, inflatable films, door and window profiles or common injection-compression methods for the production of technical and complex parts using hard PVC
PVC has a higher density than most plastics, is inexpensive and available to the public, has very high tensile strength, and is heat resistant. It has a high melting point and one of the important features about it is that it can be heated at its melting point and then cooled again and reused.
In recent years, pvc has often been produced in the chemical industry and used in the construction industry, and has been a great alternative to building materials.
