PVC has distinguished itself especially with its wide range of applications. PVC products are often cost-effective in terms of purchasing and maintenance. At the same time, they contribute more and more to sustainable development throughout their entire life cycle: this occurs by means of state-of-the-art manufacturing and production methods, the responsible use of energy and resources, cost-effective manufacturing and processing, as well as established recovery possibilities. This progress has led to a continuous increase in the demand for this plastic material. Moreover, through cost-effective PVC products, society saves money which can be spent on further sound ecological and social investments.
