PVC(short for polyvinyl chloride) is a plastic commonly used in construction. Plasticizers make it more flexible so it can be used to form pipes. It’s also used as an insulator for electrical cables. There are some concerns about toxins and radiation, and three of the chemicals used in PVC have been banned by the EU.
uPVC is polyvinyl chloride without the plasticizers. It remains highly durable and stays rigid instead of flexing, making it a common wood replacement. It’s also fire resistant and recyclable. It also lacks any serious toxins or radiation—the chemicals used to transform it into PVC are what create the toxins.
