Plastic is one of the widely used materials in various applications whether it is domestic uses or it is industrial uses. In 1855, Alexander Parkers invented first human plastic. By doing some chemical reactions plastic is being given some modification and forms time by time.
Today we have a range of common plastics that are used in our daily life. Below are some plastics:
o Polyester (PES): Textiles, Fibers, etc.
o Polystyrene (PS): Disposable plate cup, cutlery, CD and cassette box etc.
o Polypropylene (PP): Appliances, food containers car bumpers etc.
o Poly vinyl chloride (PVC): Window frame, pipe etc.
o Polyethylene (PE): Poly bags, bottles etc.
o Polycarbonate (PC): Eyeglasses, CD, Lenses etc.
Below are some special purposes plastic:
o Polymethyl methacrylate: Fluorescent light diffusers, contact lenses, glazing etc
o Polytetrafluoroethylene: plumber’s tape, frying pans, heat-resistant etc
o Polyetheretherketone: commercial polymers, aerospace mouldings etc.
o Polyetherimide: Polymer that does not crystallize etc.
Numerous researches have been made to develop variety of application of plastic in which UPVC is one of them. Today upvc is used manufacturing doors and windows. UPVC stands for ‘Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride’.
UPVC is one of the plastics that has many benefits if used in manufacturing of windows and doors. As it is available in different colors, we can have windows or doors of our interest. UPVC doors and UPVC windows can be given different designs of texture finish.
Moreover, UPVC doors and UPVC windows have the nature that it doesn’t corroded by the time. Weather doesn’t do anything to its products. It has anti corrosion nature that makes it very durable.
