Polyvinyl chloride refers to the third most preferred and produced plastic. Its main application is in construction as is very durable, easily assembled as well as cheap. The main use of PVC is in coating the wires; PVC coated wire and PVC insulated wires comes with great benefits. PVC is most commonly used for insulation of electric wiring. One of the most important aspects of PVC is that it prevents fire hazards; this aspect makes it very popular in the electrical domain.
When you are dealing with electrical wiring it is essential to ensure that safety is given first priority. Risk for fire increases greatly where electricity wiring is not done properly. Wire with PVC-coating can release HCl fumes; chlorine assists in eliminating free radicals and cause fire retardation. HCl on the other hand liquefies. As a result PVC coated wire orPVC insulated wire serves a vital purpose in the electrical domain to create power cable, etc. Power cable which is PVC coated not only prevents fire hazards but also remains preserved from moisture and water.
PVC is low in cost and serves as an excellent corrosion resistance. It has retarded oxidation properties, insulating, and resilient properties which makes it an excellent material to coat copper and aluminium wires in power cables and electrical power cable. PVC coated wire has a longer service span and comes in various colors in case the customers gets more choicy. They mostly come in lack, white and green.
PVC coated iron wire also has a common use as chain link fences used mainly in industrial security fences, tennis courts as well as freeways. PVC coated fencing is known to be one of the bets kind of fencing providing an aesthetic look. It can also face extreme harsh weather including heat of up to 50 degree Celsius; it is also resistant to ultraviolet rays. The PVC coated wire comes from 2.0 mm to 6.0 mm. They are resistant to corrosion, aging and different kinds of weather.
There are various metals used in making wiring which are coated by PVC. The wire products include copper, iron wire, stainless steel wire, galvanized iron wire as well as brass wire. However the main use of PVC coating is still in making electrical wiring using copper. PVC coated wire drastically reduces fire hazards and makes wiring safer. With the increasing utility of PVC the overall PVC manufacturing is assumed to exceed 40 million tons in few years.
