It is a polymer known as polyvinyl chloride. This plastic polymer, which has many uses and applications, is the third most-produced synthetic polymers in the world. They generally and only use the name PVC in-product notifications and product promotions made by PVC producers and sales dealers. However, pvc and u-pvc or pvc are different materials. Therefore, it is more appropriate to call and use u-pvc.
What is Upvc?
Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which is used as a raw material in the production of many plastic door or window systems, is added and strengthened with substances such as resins, fillers, colourants, UV absorbers and chemical additives that increase durability by preventing deterioration. These reinforced raw material products are subjected to cutting, welding and assembly processes after moulding. To be used and applied in U-pvc windows and upvc doors systems, equipment such as frame ventilation chambers, protective gaskets, sealing additions and heat-protective wool strips are added to make the product more robust. In order to increase the strength of U-PVC profiles, reinforcing reinforcement steel bars are added at certain distances to the profile gaps.
Benefits of Upcv Doors Systems
It is one of the most used systems in plastic steel frame and steel door systems. Among the systems, the main benefits of using u-pvc or pvc-u to this extent can be listed as follows:
Durability Feature: The durability feature of Upvc is one of the main reasons for preference. This feature brings a feature such as being long-lasting one after the other. Resistance to damage due to internal and external factors such as rust, salt corrosion, rotting, abrasion, mould, blistering, shedding and resistance to UV rays makes upvc doors systems preferred. Long-lasting conditions of use can be counted among the superior features and benefits of other products and materials.
Economic and easy maintenance feature: It can be cleaned with the help of clean and pure water or by washing with soapy water, which ensures that pvc-u, upvc doors and u-pvc windows systems remain clean and look new for many years. It is not needed for additional protection such as painting operations, sanding applications, varnishing or protective applications.
High sound insulation feature: They are preferred for their sound insulation feature up to eighty-five per cent, mostly used in double-glazed window systems. They are preferred to provide a quiet, calm and peaceful environment in homes and workplaces or in environments that need to be protected from external sounds (such as cinema, theatre, library, study halls) thanks to their insulation against high-intensity sounds.
High-security feature: It is possible to increase the security level by installing plus security and locking mechanisms, which are applied in addition to the lock systems found in U-PVC doors systems. In addition to their reinforced structure, they can be made stronger and safer with unbreakable safety glasses.
Thermal insulation feature: Upcv doors and upvc windows systems are produced from insulating materials. In addition, it is a material that insulates to low temperatures and high temperatures due to its strengthening. With its non-leakage feature, they protect the air in the indoor environment, provide breathing and regulate the air. It also helps the budget positively with the energy efficiency and savings it provides.
Multi-purpose feature: It provides the opportunity to use and apply in many areas as well as U-PVC, steel door and window systems. With the various features provided by these systems, it is preferred in many places, from home and workplaces, with its features such as opening from all directions and sizes. The main usage areas of UPVC, which is used in almost all indoor and outdoor areas; Wide usage and application areas such as door and window systems, shower cabins, balconies, gardens and hotels, restaurants, ventilation systems can be counted. High protection feature: U-PVC systems, which are resistant to severe and heavy internal and external factors, are highly resistant to fires, winds and freezing. They offer long-lasting and healthy use under the most severe conditions. They are referred to as environmentally friendly products and are preferred.
