Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is processed exclusively in the machining area as rigid PVC and, in this form, contains no plasticizers. PVC, due to its hardness, is also used in areas such as the construction industry as a window profile or in trade fair construction. Here, this thermoplastic offers advantages compared with other plastics, not least because of its low flammability and its self-extinguishing properties.
Moreover, PVC has very good adhesive properties so that, for example, the preassembly of modules such as pumps and valves is possible by bonding.
The hardness and stiffness of the material, in connection with the good chemical resistance, also allows the use of PVC in the area of container and apparatus construction, as well as in electrical engineering.
