PVC is a widely used plastic which is cheap to produce and hard enough to be used as a component parts construction material.
PVC in a plasticised form is a softer, more flexible material, and is used to manufacture coatings, fabrics and linings.
PVC is durable, weatherproof and is a good electrical insulator, hence its use as a outer coating for electrical signal cables on pressure sensors.
PVC can be used to manufacture the process connections and housings for pressure sensors which are designed to be used with acidic and alkali solutions, which would otherwise cause metal equivalents to corrode and fail.
PVC has good resistance to alcohols, ammonia, antifreeze, beer, fruit juices, freshwater, seawater, chlorinated water, detergents, diesel, fuel oils, gasoline, kerosene, hydraulic oil, hydrochloric acid and sulphuric acid.
