What is PVC made of?

Answer

For making PVC involves, the monomer molecules are put together in the polymerisation process then Long molecular chains are formed called polymers. At first production process of PVC, ethylene and chlorine are linked to which results to an intermediate product called ethylene dichloride; which is then transformed into vinyl chloride, the basic building block of polyvinyl chloride or PVC.

PVC is made by linking monomer molecules together in a process known as polymerisation. It is made from Vinyl chloride monomer also known as VCM which form long molecular chains called polymers.
PVC- Polyvinyl Chloride is a thermoplastic that is made up of 43% carbon and 57% chlorine. It is considered a natural resource saving plastic because unlike other plastics it is less dependent on natural gas or crude oil.
PVC is a thermoplastic polymer that is usually made under high temperatures. The main constituent of PVC is Polyvinyl chloride. Its constituent product is made up of numerous vinyl groups, which have a chloride atom taking the place of a hydrogen atom.
