uPVC Recycling

uPVC stands for unplasticized polyvinyl chloride. uPVC is most commonly used in creating window and door frames for double glazing because of its properties and strength. It is also used for making pipes.

What is the difference between uPVC and PVC ?

PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is a strong and lightweight material used in a multitude of building works. PVC is made softer and made more flexible by introducing plasticizers in the manufacturing process. If these plasticizers are not added the material is known as uPVC (unplasticized polyvinyl chloride) which is a more rigid substance used mainly in window and door frames.

Which is better uPVC or PVC ?

Both have different uses based on their relevant properties. uPVC is a more rigid substance and is better for making door and window frames, whereas PVC is softer and more flexible and is better used in pipes and other building components.

Can I recycle PVC?

Yes you can recycle PVC. Thanks to to its durability PVC (polyvinyl chroride) can easily be recycled. It can be reduced to polymer at high temperatures which can then be reused in other products.

How do you dispose of PVC?

uPVC recycling is the first choice as this is environmentally friendly. The only other alternatives are incineration which produced toxic gases although plants can be fitted with filtering equipment or burying uPVC in Landfill sites.

Reclamet picks up your uPVC and disposes it for you without sending it off to landfills. Upon collection, uPVC materials are mixed with virgin polymer to produce new long-life products including window profiles.
