Plastic Profiles made of Polyvinylchlorid – PVC

PVC, short for polyvinyl chloride, is one of the amorphous thermoplastics. Pure PVC is a very hard and brittle standard material. Only by adding plasticizers and stabilizers does it become softer, malleable and usable for technical applications. Properties such as durability, corrosion resistance and chemical resistance to a wide range of substances characterize this plastic. Other significant properties of PVC include low flammability, good insulation properties, weather resistance and low material costs.

Basically, polyvinyl chloride is divided into rigid and flexible PVC.

Rigid PVC, or unplasticized PVC, is used, for example, in the construction industry, medical and electrical engineering and is used as a plasticizer-free variant. For example, for pressure pipes, pipe connection elements, ventilation ducts, gutters, insulating pipes, cable ducts, hollow chamber profiles and much more.

Applications for flexible PVC include cable insulators, flooring and hoses in mechanical engineering, construction and many other industries.

Binder + Wöhrle processes PVC both in the field of plastic extrusion and plastic injection molding. B + W has different types in use and produces customized plastic pipes, hoses -profiles, -sheathings, ¬connections and much more in the diameter range of 0.5 – 50 mm.
