Vinyl Is All Around You
Without even realizing it, vinyl products can be easily found around you, even at your own house. Vinyl, which then more commonly known as PVC, is a highly versatile material that can be used in many products. Water pipes in your house are mostly made of PVC or at least PVC-coated. So are your electrical wires, “plastic” chairs, and outdoor tablecloths. If you don’t believe that, we can give you some time to look around and check.
Vinyl is so versatile that it can be used as a coating on any surface. Even vinyl fabric itself is cotton, polyester, or other fabrics coated by vinyl material to make it more durable, waterproof, and fire-resistant. It offers better quality in general. Back in the days, before the invention of vinyl in the 1920s, coatings were usually done with plastic or rubber. Cost-effective production and materials availability convinced manufacturers to switch to vinyl.
