PVC – Polyvinyl Chloride

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a thermoplastic material having outstanding corrosion resistance, excellent electric insulating properties, and good mechanical strength. It is easy to see why PVC rollers are attractive to some industries and businesses. This can be especially true on machinery that holds, distributes, or comes in contact with water or other liquids. The properties of the PVC can change with the addition of fillers, plasticizers, stabilizers, and colourants. The material is most commonly used in the electrical and chemical sectors. It is generally unplasticized in these applications because plasticizers negatively affect PVC’s chemical and electrical properties.

PVC is also versatile and can work effectively in a range of environments. It is dark grey and available in basic shapes, such as sheets, rods, hollow bars, pipes and specialty profiles. PVC materials are easily cemented and welded using hot air. Also, when you purchase rollers made of PVC from a trusted plastic rollers supplier, you won’t have to do as much maintenance.
