PVC Type I

PVC Type I


What is the Material: PVC Type I is an amorphous material.

Key Material Features: This material is resistant to weathering, corrosion, and fire.

Other Considerations: It is beneficial in applications requiring corrosion resistance. It is more chemical resistant than PVC type II, but impact resistance is improved in PVC Type II.
