Plastics Utilized In Various Applications

In the modern world plastic parts are all around us, from the wires and cables that connect us to the internet, to the conduits and wiring that wind around our houses and businesses, to the endless plastic pieces on the consoles of our cars. The majority of plastics are created using PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) and manufactured by PVC manufacturers in facilities in many countries and across the US.

Plastic specialists have the ability to change the chemical properties of rigid vinyl composition to produce rigid PVC compounds that maintain their shape or flexible PVC that wraps around other objects. The applications for PVC plastics are varied and infinite and reach across residential, commercial and industrial items including:

Industrial - handles, grips, hoses, tubing, knobs, suction cups, grommets, parts

Automotive Parts - shifters, gaskets for doors, window and sunroof seals, console moldings, trim, wires

Construction Industry - window stripping, window sealing, outside trim

Medical - tubes, bendable tubing, intravenous feeding. Compounds used in medicinal applications use medical grade PVC plastics developed to maintain sanitary and safe environments.

Electric - power supply cording, harnesses for wires, battery terminal boots, shields

Cables & Wiring - refrigerator wires, telephone/internet cables, automotive cables and wiring

All these industries are able to manufacture components without resorting to metals, glass, and other materials. This allows businesses build lighter, less expensive products. Another benefit of chemical composition is their resistance to corrosion.

Consciousness for the environment in today's world have spawned the creation of phthalate free pliable polyvinyl chloride plastics that are safer for use in toys and vinyl compounds involved in food processing.
