PVC Tubing

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is the third most widely used thermoplastic polymer after polyethylene and polypropylene. Around the world, over 50% of PVC tubing manufactured is used in construction. PVC tubing is cheap, durable, and easy to assemble. It can be made softer and more flexible by the addition of plasticizers. In this form it is used to make flexible hoses and tubing, flooring, and electrical cable insulation. PVC's intrinsic properties make it suitable for a wide variety of applications. It is biologically and chemically resistant, making it the plastic of choice for many biomedical applications where corrosion and biocompatibility would limit the use of metal. By adding plasticizers it can become flexible enough to be used in cabling applications as a wire insulator.
