A cost-effective, low-
Maintenance, light weight, strong, versatile, fully recyclable materials-
Unplastic PVC (uPVC)—
Make Architecture ecological
Friendly and sustainable development.
Let's look at the features and uses of it in construction and construction: Manufacturing process
UPVC is a product of the petrochemical industry, known as Hotplastic.
Shripal Munshi, the chief architect of Shripal and Venkat Architects, explained the process and said that the molten PVC passed through the mold and profile and then cut, fused
The door and window are welded and screwed together.
It's from ethylene (
From natural gas)and chlorine (From salt water).
The stabilizer is added to improve the resistance of upvc to heat and sunlight.
A new generation of stabilizer based on calcium.
What is the reason for its popularity?
Upvc is considered a more sustainable option because they are unlikely to be affected by climate change for a longer period of time. S Kalidoss, GM-
The project at Hiranandani House says the industry has come to terms with uPVC being more durable and energy efficient --efficient.
In addition to a wide range of uses, UPVC products can also withstand pipes and drainage more effectively than traditional pipes (
GI, rough pottery, RCC)
Because the friction loss is small.
In addition, the uPVC Pipe is easy to use and can withstand high operating pressure.
"These products are able to resist sunlight, oxidation and a variety of chemicals.
"They are able to resist fire, Frost, electricity, and do not adversely respond to any building material," Kalidos said . ".
Compared with solid wood doors and windows, wooden windows and doors, Italian aluminum wood windows and aluminum hot broken windows, the price of uPVS products is also cheaper.
The material is dust-
Proofand is a product under extreme conditions.
It has better sound insulation, heat insulation and fire resistance than aluminum.
"UPVC doors and windows have greater energy saving potential than any other window material, ranking first in the ecosystem
Efficiency Analysis . "
Compared with other frame materials such as aluminum, wood, they have the highest thermal insulation properties, and their extrusion process is relatively energy-
High efficiency compared to aluminum.
Rangvc vc has multiple uses and is not limited to the construction department.
In the construction industry, uPVC is mainly used for windows, doors, water pipes, irrigation pipes, sanitary pipes, pipe pipes, water tanks, partition panels, temporary shelters, rolled concrete formwork materials, and fake ceilings.
In the transportation industry, it is used externally for the manufacture of body, caravan, and also internally for the creation of plastic aesthetics.
In the retail sector, uPVC produces sales monitors, storage racks, ticket strips and sea newspaper clips. N.
General manager Kalyanaraman-
Navin's housing technology company says uPVC is suitable for projects in areas close to the sea.
"It's easier to use because it won't be corroded.
It is also easy to use because it is light weight.
The doors and windows are made of UPVC, cut into the required size and connected with fusion welding.
Then fix the necessary hardware, glass and washers.
"UPVC, as a green material based on physical and chemical properties, has proven that uPVC is a green material.
One of the main benefits is that these products can be completely recycled for production.
These products are recyclable and can be transformed into new products at high temperatures.
Shushmul Maheshwari of RNCOS said, "at the end of their lives, they can convert into other useful products and even re-process the waste generated during the manufacturing process, this will help create a reliable and sustainable future.
Munshi explained that the basic PVC molecules come from salt, an element with sufficient supply and an estimated £ 50 trillion (
There is a large amount of dissolved salt in the world's oceans alone, and the rest comes from oil. “PVC is inert;
This is a quality that is very suitable for use in medical products and environments, and the modern production process of PVC is also very eco-friendly.
"It takes an average of 30,000 years for a PVC production plant in Europe to produce the same amount of dioxin on a bonfire night.
Chandan Jain, MD, Vijay Shanthi builder, said that today, doors and windows are indispensable energy-saving components.
The thermal conductivity of the UPVC is low, which makes it not affected by heat transfer and energy use
Efficient doors and windows can help you reduce almost 7-15 per cent.
"There are three kinds of energy in UPVC doors and windows --
Save on features that minimize heating and cooling costs, "he said.
According to a study conducted by RNCOS, uPVC doors and windows are affordable and help to save on cooling or heating costs.
If the structure is equipped with uPVC doors and windows, they help to save about 20 bills.
In addition to this, uPVC can replace wood and is considered a popular frame material.
Its manufacturing industry is relatively energy.
Compared with aluminum production, the efficiency is high.
Its sealing quality excludes environmental pollutants such as sound, dust and smoke from the home, reducing health hazards and improving the environmental quality within the home. T.
Chitty Babu of Akshaya says uPVC is a great alternative to wood, steel and aluminum. “It is a by-
The product of the oil cracking process, thereby minimizing waste.
While everyone says plastic is not a "green" product, it is possible to recycle uPVC.
While there are many benefits to this material, there are also its drawbacks.
The strength and weight ratio of UPVC is low, and the extrusion process is energy-saving, but also toxic.
Its life is different from that of aluminum or steel, and it often changes color due to the lack of appropriate additives and protection against ultraviolet radiation.
Yaazhini Ramchandran, designer of Shripal and Venkat Holdings, said that uPVC is not recommended for use above 70 °C, although it can withstand 80 °C in a short period of time.
The material is sensitive to UV and oxidation degradation.
Its thermal properties are limited and its density is higher than that of many plastics.
While none of the modern building materials match the uPVC, there are some materials that have similar advantages.
Fiberglass concrete (GFRC)
Fiber reinforced plastic (FRP)could be used.
Why is uPVC popular? High Density Polyethylene pipes, aluminum plates, calcium silicate plates, gypsum and fiber plastics are other alternative materials.
Hygienic Means of high mechanical strength and persistent fluid transport, anti-fungal, not contaminated by most acid, alkali, organic chemicals, oil and fat concentrations, able to withstand deformation due to the slow moving density of the earth, lower transportation costs, easier fire prevention and self-installation
