For more than 50 years, PVC has been very successful throughout the world. Today, this versatile material is one of the most important plastic materials recognised internationally and proven on the market.
PVC has distinguished itself especially with its wide range of applications. PVC products are often cost-effective in terms of purchasing and maintenance. At the same time, they contribute more and more to sustainable development throughout their entire life cycle: this occurs by means of state-of-the-art manufacturing and production methods, the responsible use of energy and resources, cost-effective manufacturing and processing, as well as established recovery possibilities. This progress has led to a continuous increase in the demand for this plastic material. Moreover, through cost-effective PVC products, society saves money which can be spent on further sound ecological and social investments.
Strong and lightweight
PVC’s abrasion resistance, light weight, good mechanical strength and toughness are key technical advantages for its use in various applications.
Easy to install
PVC can be cut, shaped, welded and joined easily in a variety of styles.
PVC is resistant to weathering, rotting, chemical corrosion, shock and abrasion. It is therefore the preferred choice for a range of customers for many different long-life and outdoor products
PVC has been a popular material for construction applications for decades due to its physical and technical properties which provide excellent cost-performance advantages.
Excellent thermal insulation of PVC windows, cladding and roofing helps to significantly increase the energy efficiency of buildings. PVC piping systems help prevent leakage and their exceptionally smooth surfaces reduce the cost of pumping fluids.
Easily recyclable and can be recycled several times without losing their technical properties
