PVC-U is the acronym for unplasticised polyvinyl chloride an ultra-high-density polyvinyl chloride rigid plastic material (polymer) that offers sufficient strength and weather resistance to be used for products in external building work. The primary applications of PVC-U are in the fabrication of windows and doors, in forming fascias, claddings and roofline products.
There are features of PVC-U as a material that offer many benefits when used in the manufacture of windows and doors. Modern technology has been employed to produce slim, feature profiles that are robust and versatile.
