PVC Living Hinge Description
Polyvinyl chloride is the world's third-most widely produced synthetic polymer of plastic. About 40 million tons of PVC are produced each year. PVC comes in two basic forms: rigid and flexible. The rigid form of PVC is used in construction for pipe and in profile applications such as doors and windows.
PVC foam offers many advantages, such as superior impact resistance, high strength, great durability, low water absorption, high corrosion resistance, and fire resistance to name a few. These benefits provide the perfect material to withstand all types of indoor and outdoor conditions, including harsh weather. PVC foam is also a great alternative to other materials, such as wood or aluminum, and can often last 40 years without experiencing any damage.

PVC does not require any extra maintenance to keep the material in optimal condition, and they are super easy to clean. However, it is important to use non-abrasive cleaning agents. For light cleaning such a dusting, a soft cloth will be just fine. If you want to clean it with a general cleaning product make sure it’s a non abrasive agent so that your PVC will not get messed up.
