Construction

  • Offered in a wide range from rubbery soft to semi-rigid.
  • Flexible PVC is widely used for plastic profile extrusions because of its resistance to abrasion and ability to insulate.
  • Flexible PVC is commonly used for impact resistant buffers, gaskets, cushioning devices, and flexible tubing.
  • PVC is a polymer used in the building industry for ecological purposes (for example saving energy) thanks to its excellent thermal insulation and weathering properties. It is suitable for indoor and outdoor applications.
  • PVC makes a major contribution to the quality, safety and cost-effectiveness of construction materials, as well as contributing to lower environmental impacts of completed projects.
  • It is the most widely used polymer in building and construction applications and over 60 per cent of Western Europe‚Äôs annual PVC production is used in this sector.
  • PVC makes the most of valuable resources by using the minimum amount of raw materials and energy during manufacture and processing. Today, PVC is lighter, stronger and more adaptable than ever before thanks to continuing technological innovation. This means that product for product, proportionally less of the world’s oil and energy resources are being used with lower overall impact on the environment.
