PVC

OMEGA-CHEM ® Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is the product of the polymerisation of vinyl chloride and was one of the first fully synthetic materials developed nearly 70 years ago.

OMEGA-CHEM ® Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is manufactured into products by the injection moulding process, extrusion, blow moulding and calendaring. Joining and fabrication of OMEGA-CHEM ® can be easily accomplished by using standard metal and woodworking equipment with tools specifically prepared for PVC. Fabrication includes joining by solvent cementing process, hot gas welding, machining, vacuum forming, thermoforming, milling and drilling. The wide range of formulations, processing characteristics, fabrication abilities, durability and relatively stable cost provide an economical material for a broad range of applications.
