One of the world’s oldest plastics, Polyvinyl chloride (U-PVC) has evolved since the 1940s to become a universally used, cost effective, adaptable, safe and environmentally efficient material. U-PVC is a versatile and safe material for the modern world. Its unique properties make it the material of choice in many applications, including construction, transportation, electronics and health. It is claimed that U-PVC is not recyclable. This is simply not true. U-PVC is an ideal polymer for recycling, unlike many other materials U-PVC can be recycled simply by chipping the waste material and extruding into new products.
