What’s the result?

Most commodity plastics have carbon and hydrogen as their main component elements. PVC differs by containing chlorine as well (around 57 per cent by weight). This makes PVC compatible with a wide range of other materials, adding to its versatility. The chlorine content also helps to make PVC flame retardant.

PVC polymer is chemically stable, neutral and non-toxic. It is often supplied as an odourless white powder. Since the material is resistant to oxidation and degradation, long-term storage is possible.

Various additives and pigments can be added to PVC during processing, making it adaptable to a wide range of products.
