Polyvinyl chloride, PVC, is produced by polymerization of the monomer vinyl chloride, a widely used plastic in construction due to its durability. This material can be made softer and more flexible with the addition of plasticizers and can be used in clothing and upholstery, electrical cable insulation, inflatable products, and many applications as a substitute for rubber.
