5.2 PVC Architectural Membranes

PVC - Polyvinyl Chloride

The construction industry uses over half the PVC manufactured as it is inexpensive, durable and easy to work with. PVC membranes are thermoplastic polymers and while the surface is non-stick, it is less so than ETFE or PTFE. Architecturally popular for canopies, awnings and roof shelters, PVC can last from 15 to 25 years, depending on the application and climate. A highly flexible and translucent material, with a wide variety of color and printing options, PVC works especially well for trade fairs and interior applications. PVC membranes come in different grades and are resistant to fires and tears.
