It is imperative that both construction and electrical work is done correctly, as a high level of functionality and safety is required by the nature of these lines of work. This is why Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is a common plastic material that many construction and electrical companies use, and for good reason. It is an inexpensive and has a low risk of corroding, meaning it is reliable and safe to use. Plasticut are available to design PVC cut to size products to suit the requirements of your job, and we will explain how this type of plastic can benefit tradesmen working in the construction and electrical industries.

PVC For Construction

Construction work is naturally work that needs to be done exactly right for the safety of the occupants of the building being built. This means that high-quality materials need to be used to complete this work. Construction companies regularly use PVC for piping due to its durability and effectiveness. PVC is preferred over copper, iron, and wood for pipeline construction and implementation. It is also used in door and window frames, and in applications where metal may corrode due to environmental conditions.

PVC For Electrical Work

As plastic does not conduct electricity, it can be used for various applications where their insulating properties are needed. PVC is widely used to insulate electric wiring in buildings due to its waterproof and rigid qualities.

What makes PVC a great option to work with:

  • Electrical insulating properties
  • Resistance to chemicals
  • Easy fabrication
  • Non-conductive
  • High moisture resistance
  • Dimensional stability
  • Thermoformable
  • Bondable
  • Self-extinguishing
