Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
Polyvinyl chloride is a flexible or rigid material that is relatively inert and chemically non-reactive. It is resistant to water and corrosion, and possesses a high strength-to-weight ratio. It is tough and dent-resistant, and it maintains its properties over long periods of time. Polyvinyl chloride, commonly known as PVC or vinyl, is one of the most widely used synthetic materials today due to its durability and versatility. Common uses include piping, vinyl siding, vinyl flooring, electrical insulation, windows, toys, medical equipment, cloth and paper coating, packaging, and countless other plastic products.
PVC has been attacked by various groups on the basis of environmental performance - all of which ignore the immense service that the material plays in the modern industrial society. Rigid PVC is physiologically safe and has no health and safety implications, and plasticized PVC is used extensively in food packaging. PVC contains no products that are likely to give rise to health and safety concerns. PVC is claimed to be dangerous by some but it is the main material used for blood bags and medical tubing and has been responsible for saving countless lives.
