Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is one of the most versatile thermoplastics in use today. It is used extensively from food packaging to home construction.
Its excellent strength to weight ratio and superior flame resistance, coupled with its low cost, make it the material of choice for the most demanding applications. Ralloy™ polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is usually an amorphous thermoplastic material with excellent chemical resistance and dielectric properties, good tensile, flexural and mechanical strength.
PVC has a very high resistance to many chemicals including concentrated acids, alkalis and alcohols. Its excellent mechanical strength and ease of machining also makes PVC an exceptionally useful plastic for pipe fittings and components where chemicals are used in industry. Ralloy™ PVC (Polyvinylchloride) is the oldest and probably most widely used of all plastics. A rigid plastic, it is usually grey or white in colour.
