What is the plastic on binders made out of and how is it made?

Dec 23rd, 2014

Polyvinyl chloride or PVC is the plastic used on binders.

The chemical process for making PVC involves taking the simplest unit, called the monomer, and linking these monomer molecules together in the polymerisation process. Long molecular chains are formed called polymers (which are also called macromolecules).

The suspension polymerisation process is most widely used process to manufacture PVC.
