PVC – Polyvinyl Chloride


PVC-MZ is similar to PVC-CAW in terms of most properties, but it has better resistance to low temperatures and greater impact strength. This rigid plastic has good weather resistance and mechanical strength, and it offers excellent chemical‑resistance properties. T We deliver PVC-MZ as plastic sheets, hollow rods, rods and components such as pipe parts, valves and welding wire.
