Durability. When you invest in PVC, its durability gives you lasting value. Signs made from PVC are Semi - dent and scratch resistant. They can withstand high levels of moisture, making them great for outdoor use.
Expanded PVC (polyvinyl chloride), also known as foam PVC, Trovicel® and Sintra®, helps you project a high-quality, professional image. Medium-weight and durable, expanded PVC can be installed and transported easily and is great for long-term indoor or short-term outdoor use
Generally, PVC is resistant to UV rays and will not immediately deteriorate in sunlight. But consistent exposure to the sun will weaken the pipe with time. Generally, PVC pipe has a lifespan of 50 to 80 years under the sun.
Handling: As mentioned above, the impact strength of PVC pipe decreases during cold weather. At 32°F, however, the pipe still maintains 70% to 90% of its strength at 73°F. Abusive procedures that may work in warm weather may not be as successful in the winter.
PVC is a durable material that's resistant to weathering, which is why it's so often used in building and construction. It's also resistant to chemicals and doesn't conduct electricity, making it crucial for use in high-tech applications.
