Plasticised Polyvinyl Chloride - Plasticised PVC - PPVC (100 - 300%) Elongation

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Soft and flexible, better flammability characteristics, tensile strength and modulus than PVCs with higher levels of plasticisation.

Disadvantages

Lower tensile strength and modulus than PVCs with lower levels of plasticisation.
