  • Polyvinyl chloride, (IUPAC Polychloroethene) commonly abbreviated PVC, is a widely used thermoplastic polymer.
  • Vinyl chloride is a colourless gas with a characteristic mild, sweet odour. A toxic and hazardous material, vinyl chloride has been classified as a group A, human carcinogen.
  • PVC is a thermoplastic material. Thermoplastic materials are those that can be melted again and again.
  • PVC is strong, lightweight, durable and versatile.
  • Vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) is used almost exclusively in polyvinyl chloride (PVC) manufacture.
  • The basic raw materials for PVC are derived from salt and oil.
  • Polyvinyl chloride is produced by polymerization of the monomer vinyl chloride.
  • The chemical process for making PVC involves three steps: first, production of the monomer, vinyl chloride; then the linking of these monomer units in a polymerisation process; and finally the blending of the polymer with additives.
  • There are four polymerization routes for the manufacture of PVC. They are as follows : Suspension Polymerization, Emulsion Polymerization, Bulk or Mass Polymerization, Solution Polymerization.
  • PVC is commonly used as the insulation on electric wires; the plastic used for this purpose needs to be plasticized.
  • Polyvinyl chloride is also widely used for producing pipes.
  • It can be used for flooring, windows and door frames and shutters, water and waste pipes, electrical applications such as cable and wire insulation materials, architectural glazing systems, wallpaper, etc.
  • PVC has been widely used for surgery, pharmaceuticals, drug delivery and medical packaging.
  • Worldwide PVC is the leading raw material for window frames when it comes down to the fact of comparing weather resistance, mechanical properties and price.
  • PVC itself is highly dependent on the construction market, which reflects the ups and downs of the world economies.
  • Existing and projected demand for high-quality PVC is still expected to be supplied by ethylene-based manufacturers.
  • China has a very dominant role with almost 65-66% of the Asian consumption and about 27% of the World consumption.
  • China leads the world in both production and consumption of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and demand will rise 8% annually through 2010.
  • PVC can be processed into various products in a number of ways. The range extends from heat-insulating, energy-saving windows to sturdy pipes and easy-to-clean floor coverings. Approximately seventy percent of PVC materials are used in the building sector, many of
    which are long-life products
  • The major consumption sectors are Irrigation/water supply (38%), Buildings and Construction (23%), the remaining being used in medical, footwear, profiles, packaging etc.
  • In 2012, worldwide production
    capacity for PVC was 54 million tons, an increase of 9 million Tons since 2009.
  • In the emerging markets, e.g. China or the Indian subcontinent, growth is expected to be between 5 and 8 % per year, while only slight growth is expected for Western Europe.
