PVC belongs to the 'general' plastics group with an excellent price/performance ratio. That is why PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) is used in almost every branch of industry and for the most diverse applications.
For example, PVC is a widely used material in the advertising world, it is successfully used in the construction sector and PVC, in the form of pipes, fittings and appendages, is indispensable in the construction of piping systems. The application possibilities of PVC are also countless for processors in equipment construction, machine construction and the electrical industry.
PVC is available from Amari Plastics in many specific versions. See below all the options that Amari Plastics can offer you.
How to identify PVC
Where is PVC used?
Polyvinyl Chloride has a wide variety of applications in the industrial, construction and advertising sectors. It belongs to the category of 'general' plastics with an excellent price/performance ratio and is widely used. Of course we know the material from the private market, but it is also one of the most commonly used types of plastic in industry. Thanks to the very good chemical and electrical properties, the material is often used for plastic piping systems, for example in the water treatment or chemical process industry.
The price/performance ratio mentioned above also makes PVC an excellent material for advertising applications. It is excellent for printing and also for processing with normal tools. We see it often in all kinds of advertising, such as displays or poster carriers. There are foamed versions of PVC sheets for the advertising sector, which achieve a weight saving of 50%.
For the construction sector, we see PVC mainly being used as facade cladding. For this application, the material is often provided with a special foil, which provides UV protection, for example, so that the material also has a long life outdoors. We also see PVC as a material for wall cladding, this mainly includes the combination of PVC and PMMA.
The main technical properties of PVC
PVC is a rigid, form-retaining plastic with a smooth and sleek surface. It is is excellent to glue and weld, so that a connection is quickly made. It is not suitable for the food industry but is resistant to most chemicals. For example, PVC is chosen for piping and for applications in laboratories.
