Q. What is polyvinyl? What is PVC?
A. Crude oil, natural gas, and chloride are the raw materials used in the production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin. Vinyl compound is formulated from raw materials that include PVC resin, UV inhibitors (TiO2), impact modifiers, stabilizers, and toners.
PVC is probably best known as the plumbing pipe at the hardware store. The plumbing in your house is probably PVC pipe, unless it’s an older home. There’s more to PVC than just pipe. Vinyl siding and vinyl windows used on homes are made of polyvinyl chloride, as are Digger Specialties, Inc. vinyl products. Inside the home, PVC is used to make linoleum for the floor. PVC is useful because it resists two things that hate each other: fire and water. Because of its water resistance, it is used to make raincoats, shower curtains, and of course, water pipes. It also has flame resistance because it contains chlorine, which inhibits combustion.
