PVC is replacing traditional building materials such as wood, metal, concrete and clay in many applications.
Versatility, cost effectiveness and an excellent record of use means it is the most important polymer for the construction sector.
Polyvinyl chloride, PVC, is one of the most popular plastics used in building and construction. It is used in drinking water and waste water pipes, window frames, flooring and roofing foils, wall coverings, cables and many other applications as it provides a modern alternative to traditional materials such as wood, metal, rubber and glass. These products are often lighter, less expensive and offer many performance advantages.
Since the uses of PVC vary, it’s important to ensure that you are using the correct printing and coding equipment on your particular product. At Griffin-Rutgers, we understand the importance of durable, reliable labeling within the building and construction environment. We offer a wide range of high-performance labelling solutions that work well within every sector of the building and construction industry that are suitable for all applications of products constructed out of PVC.

The average car today has more than 1,000 plastic components and roughly 12% of them are made of soft PVC. The main uses include underbody coatings and sealants, wire harnesses, synthetic leather for seats, passenger compartment parts and small exterior trims and fittings. Vehicle manufacturers clearly recognize the performance at both low and high temperature, the design, weight and cost […]
