PVC-U (polyvinyl chloride) is an amorphous, thermoplastic, plasticizer-free plastic, also known as hard PVC. The “U” stands for “Unplasticized”, so it’s “plasticizer-free”. PVC-U is primarily characterised by its excellent chemical resistance, processability and bondability, and is self-extinguishing after the flame source is removed. This means that PVC-U is suitable for a variety of applications with differing requirements.
