Post-chlorinated polyvinyl chloride, popularly known as PVC-C. It is a material with a particular resistance to corrosive agents and high temperatures. It displays excellent UL-94V-0 fire-retardant properties and flame propagation less than 20 for ASTM E-84.
It can be used (based on the chemical use) up to 180°F and, therefore, is particularly suitable for support constructions. For these reasons PVC-C is used under these conditions in replacement with the most common PVC.
- An excellent thermal shock resistance
- A good workability: it can be processed, cut and welded.
- High thermal stability
- Excellent chemical resistance to acids and alkali
- Excellent mechanical properties at operating temperatures ranging from 0°C to over 100 °C.
SOME FIELDS OF APPLICATION
- Electroplating industry and petrochemistry
- Paper industry
- Industrial pipes
- Microelectronic industry
N.B. PVC-C complies with ASTM-D-1784-95 Class 23447-B (formally IV Type , Grade 1) and it is produced without additives or plasticisers.
