What is polyvinyl chloride
Polyvinyl chloride is the third-most widely produced thermoplastic after polyethylene and polypropylene. With two basic forms – rigid and flexible – PVC is made up of raw materials derived from oil and salt. PVC is made with less crude oil and natural gas than other plastics, making it more environmentally friendly.

As a popular thermoplastic, PVC is highly suitable for welding in several applications. Industries such as awning, sign, banner, ducting, and tent manufacturers choose PVC welding for reasons such as:
