The scientific name of PVC is polyvinyl chloride, which is a general-purpose synthetic resin, a polymer with a random configuration structure. Different additives can be added according to different uses. Due to different components, PVC products have different physical and mechanical properties, so they have different applications.
The common PVC products are PVC pipes, which occupy a large proportion of plastic pipes. PVC pipes can be divided into PVC hoses and PVC rigid pipes.
PVC hose is made of PVC resin with a large amount of plasticizer, a certain amount of stabilizer, and other additives. It is extruded after granulation. It has excellent chemical stability, excellent electrical insulation and good flexibility. and colorability, this kind of tube is often used to replace rubber tube to transport liquid and corrosive media and is also used as cable casing and wire insulation tubes.
PVC rigid pipe (UPVC pipe) is made by mixing PVC resin with stabilizers, lubricants, and other additives, and then extruding it after granulation. It can also be extruded from powder at one time. RPVC pipes have good chemical resistance and insulation and are mainly used for conveying various fluids and as wire casings. UPVC pipe is easy to cut, weld, glue, heat, and bend, so it is very convenient to install and use.
