ApplicationsFlexible PVC is a soft, flexible material that ranges in appearance from transparent to opaque. PVC is manufactured with plasticizers, which confer rubbery properties on the end product. By adjusting the type and amount of plasticizers, plastic molders can achieve a large range of flexible compositions. Common applications in which Flexible PVC is used include:

  • Wire & Cable Jacketing

  • Pool Liners

  • Flooring

  • Garden Hoses

  • Rainwear & Boots

  • Medical Tubing

  • Automotive Interior Trim

  • Plumbing

  • Electrical Cable Insulation

  • Inflatable Products

  • Imitation leather

  • Signage

AdvantagesFlexible PVC offers a number of advantages, such as:

  • Good Strength

  • High Abrasion Resistance

  • High Clarity

  • Good Outdoor Weathering Characteristics


  • Poor Thermal Capability

  • Sensitive to UV Degradation
