What is PVC
Jul 08, 2018

All PVC products are made from a combination of vinyl resin and various additives, which gives these products their particular properties.

Some of the additives commonly used in PVC include the following:

  • Impact modifiers improve impact strength, or resistance of the profile to cracking or breaking.

  • UV inhibitors protect the finished product from damaging rays of the sun. Titanium dioxide and UV absorbers are the most common materials used to screen or absorb UV radiation, which would otherwise cause rapid degradation of the product.

  • Pigments provide consistent color throughout the product, but darker colours tend to absorb more heat and are subject to fading at a faster pace than lighter colours.
