First of all, let’s say some good things about PVC-U that your customers may not know. The largest ingredient in PVC-U is common salt. The balance currently comes from oil reserves but could easily be made from organic biofuel crops. PVC-U is a thermoplastic which means it can be reformed. It has a long life and at the end of that can easily be recycled to produce another product. In other words it’s not destined for landfill. Many of our products already contain an amount of recycled materials but you would never know from their appearance or performance. Easy-to-maintain PVC-U uses no harsh chemicals, wood preservatives and paints to keep it in tip-top condition, so doesn’t pose hazards for the natural environment. And of course, PVC-U is a great insulator so helps to reduce energy consumption.
