Think Pipes. Think PVC is a joint initiative set up to promote and encourage the use of PVC pipes.
Polyvinyl Chloride, otherwise known as PVC or Vinyl, the polymer derived from a combination of common salt and hydrocarbon feedstock, is one of the most versatile plastic materials available.
Compared to other polymers, PVC consumes significantly less non-renewable feedstock, such as crude oil or natural gas. Other plastics such as PE, PP, PET and PS are traditionally totally dependent on oil or gas. Hence PVC can be regarded as a natural resource saving plastic.
Versatility, cost effectiveness and an excellent track record makes PVC the most important polymer in plastic piping and its quality and safety helps to contribute to the environmental sustainability of completed construction projects.
