BENEFITS of PVCu: World’s Oldest Polymer
The Material of Choice

One of the world’s oldest polymers, polyvinyl chloride, or PVC, has evolved since the 1940s to become a universally used, cost effective, adaptable, safe and environmentally efficient material. PVC’s unique properties make it the material of choice for many applications, including construction, transportation, electronics and health.

BENEFITS of PVCu: Energy Efficiency
Lower Heating and Cooling Costs

Heating and cooling is the largest energy expense for most buildings, accounting for 56% of overall energy use. With vinyl windows keeping heated and cooled air sealed tightly within your home or building, heating and air conditioning units don’t have to work as hard to maintain the desired temperature. You conserve energy – and save money. An investment in vinyl windows can often be recouped in as few as two years.

PVC is the ideal material for recycling

During the manufacturing process, PVC is easily chipped into reusable waste material and extruded into new products. Ninety-nine percent of vinyl’s manufacturing waste can be reprocessed. In addition, millions of pounds of post-consumer vinyl are recycled.
