PVC plastic (chemically known as Polyvinyl Chloride) is sold by Ensinger in standard stock shapes for machining. PVC is one of the most commonly used plastic polymer globally. PVC is a unique semi-crystalline, engineering thermoplastic that also offers excellent chemical compatibility. With very high density, rigid PVC is extremely strong and exceptionally hard, in addition to, low water absorption, good flammability and weather resistant properties. Furthermore, PVC is easily machined, allowing close tolerances without great difficulty. This material is also readily available and very cost effective, making it an ideal choice for a number of industrial, construction and laboratory applications.
