What is PVC?

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is one of the most widely used plastic polymers in the world and is made from a mixture of additives and vinyl resins to create desired properties. A few of these additives are pigments (to provide even colour), impact modifies (to improve strength and toughness) and UV inhibitors (such as Titanium Dioxide, which protect the material from degradation).

What is 100% Virgin PVC?

PVC or Timber?

Timber fences give you splinters, they rot, they're prone to vermin, they crack, peel, fade, warp and eventually, they fall down. To make a timber fence look even half decent, you need to stain it or paint it... regularly. No more. Timer fences are a thing of the past. A PVC fence will be looking fresh and new long after you've watched your neighbours fences rot away.
