The history of PVC and UPVC

Polyvinyl chloride is a  type of polymer that was first prepared by the German chemist Eugen Baumann in 1872, it was not until later that is was patented in 1913  by Friedrich Klatte.PVC is made of a combination of vinyl chloride monomer and ethylene dichloride.  PVC is available two versions which are distinguished as flexible and rigid. The rigid version is known as PVC. The flexible version of PVC is known Unplasticized polyvinyl chloride or PVC.UPVC is created from the PVC when additives called phthalates are added to PVC during the production process.UPVC was first derived and developed from PVC in  1926  by Waldo Lunsbury.

UPVC and the manufacturing of Facias, soffits and guttering

UPVC is ideal to use in the manufacturing of facias, soffits and guttering because it is flexible and strong it can be shaped into pipes and downspouts quite easily. The main advantage of installing a UPVC  FSG roofline to your home is that is longlasting, requires little maintenance and most importantly it will not rust, crumble or flake away because it does not contain any metallic elements that will become oxidized throughout the decades of harsh weather conditions it will be exposed to.

UPVC and the production of canopies


UPVC canopies cost considerably less than wooden canopies and glass canopies. Click here view the complete article on canopies 

The following is a list of the other advantages of installing a UPVC FSG rooflines  and  canopies from Future Renovations UK™ :

  • Lightweight and easy to install
  • Non-toxic does not contain elements that
  • Inert, does not react to the outside elements it is exposed
  • Flexible, you can bend it for drainage pipings and other waterworks
  • The fittings and reducing connections are readily available in the market
  • Long lasting since it doesn't corrode due to a chemical reaction inside and outside the pipe
  • Cheaper than concrete pipes and metal pipes
  • Easily identifiable
  • Replaceable in less time compared to wood
  • Requires little maintenance
  • Non-flammable and fire retardant
  • Good dimensional stability, and distributes the force of pressure uniformly
  • Good resistance to weathering, corrosion and rust resistant
  • Comparatively, low cost when compared to the alternative materials used in the production of the roof lines and canopies  such as wood, copper and aluminium
