PVC offers competitive solutions to the challenges that we face as we build a sustainable and innovative future. Such solutions range for example from the design of modern and comfortable low-energy buildings to enabling mega infrastructure for the transportation of water and electricity. Furthermore, PVC meets a key challenge for a sustainable future by ensuring the recyclability of essential products used in our daily lives.
As a result of industry-wide innovations in recovery and recycling, PVC is the polymer that truly fulfills the requirements of a circular economy, meeting key sustainability goals. PVC provides maximum value during its life cycle and has a low carbon footprint through the sustainable use of resources and energy during production.

PVC is a versatile polymer valued for its distinctive properties, making it an excellent choice for industrial and consumer products. It can be easily transformed through a wide range of manufacturing processes including extrusion, calendering, injection, slush and blow moulding. PVC is inherently flame retardant and can be fully recycled into new products while keeping its key performance properties.
With K-values (a measure of the molecular weight) ranging from 57 to 70, our PVC resins can be blended with additives such as plasticisers, thermal and UV stabilisers, pigments, fillers, impact modifiers and others. The resulting range of finished products extends from soft articles such as films, roofing membranes and flooring to rigid films, pipes and window profiles.
PVC is an essential material used in the building & construction industry. It is a durable polymer that can be readily processed into pipes, fittings, windows, flooring, cladding, fencing, and roofing elements. The versatility of PVC architectural components has helped spur innovation by architects and designers, enabling universally used, modern design concepts. PVC window profiles are long-lasting, durable and easy to maintain. They provide highly effective insulation and are extremely robust against mechanical as well as environmental influences such as UV radiation.
The automotive industry has embraced PVC as a functional material that improves the design and longevity of vehicles. It possesses a wide range of desirable material properties for the automotive sector, as it is light, aesthetic and insulating. The applications are numerous. PVC is used in door trims, seats, dashboards, sealing and soundproofing caulks as well as for roof panels, cable sheaths and many more applications.
PVC is now the most widely used polymer for medical devices. It is light, almost impossible to tear and can be formed into nearly endless shapes of rigid or flexible medical devices: blood bags, dialysis bags and other non-breakable single-use fluid containers, catheters, tubing, examination sets and surgical gloves. It enables easy fabrication at a low cost for safe single-use products and is resistant to chemicals and fluids. Even more importantly, PVC-based medical products can easily be sterilized, making it indeed an unbeatable material for medical devices, playing an essential role in providing access to safe and affordable healthcare.
PVC has excellent thermoforming and good intrinsic barrier properties making it a superior material for packaging applications. Not only does it remain physically stable under normal use conditions, it is also resistant to chemical, oil, and grease infiltration and has good clarity and impact-resistance.
PVC is a sturdy food packaging material, preventing contamination while preserving taste and quality. Applications include containers, trays, bottles, can linings, and flexible film. PVC packaging is also used for its excellent tamper resistance and transparency, for example in blister packaging for consumer products.
PVC provides endless opportunities to improve our everyday life. It is a uniquely versatile and cost-effective product used in day-to-day products including cards, printing panels, furniture, stationery articles, garden hoses, inflatables and toys.
PVC poses no health risks to consumers and its ability to create organic shapes in an infinite array of colours makes PVC a material of the future.

PVC pipes have been used to establish safe drinking water systems since the 1930s and most of these are still in use. In addition to their long expected lifespan – in excess of 100 years – recent research conducted by Vynova has also once more demonstrated that PVC pipes are very suitable for recycling.
The flat roofs of commercial buildings and apartment blocks have historically been notorious for water problems. No roof is ever completely flat, causing water to pond in certain areas. Eventually this water finds its way through to the building below.
Although it may be hard to believe, biofuels have been around for as long as the automobile. Original diesel engine designs were built on the principle of using peanut oil as a fuel source. Henry Ford actually intended to use ethanol as a fuel, but the rise in availability of fossil fuels at low costs led to their dominance as a fuel source.
It may seem unusual to link innovations in PVC with hospital interiors. PVC has long been known as a hard-wearing product, which is easy to clean. However, innovations involving antimicrobial additives have now made PVC interiors an integral part of the international public health strategy to prevent the transfer of infections.
Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) are made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The growth in LVT flooring has come about because of the unique properties of this product, which make it ideal for home and commercial applications. Not only does it meet the creative demands of designers, but it is also extremely durable and sustainable.
We use chlorine in pharmaceuticals, medical devices, windows, flooring, insulation and piping. Water purification and swimming pool disinfection are also well-known applications for chlorine. Vynova produces chlorine and uses it in the manufacture of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and sodium hypochlorite.
Representatives of the Polymers for Europe Alliance travelled to Vynova’s site at Wilhelmshaven (Germany), to present the new criteria for the upcoming Best Polymer Producers Awards for Europe, and to discuss the future of the industry. The visit facilitated a productive exchange on the state of the polymer industry, best practices, and the future of polymer production.
One of the latest innovations in the quest to improve PVC piping properties is a process called molecular orientation - a process that results in PVC-O. PVC-O has all the original advantages of PVC, but its properties are even more enhanced, resulting in several economic and practical benefits.
