UPVC and PVC pipes are very similar in many ways, the difference in them is how they are used. Regular PVC pipes are used in situations where resistance to corrosive materials is desired. UPVC is used in situations where a sturdy low maintenance material is desired. It can also be noted that one major difference does exist between the two, PVC is more flexible than UPVC making it a better choice for a number of applications where that property is valued. And one more major difference is that PVC is most often used for plumbing while UPVC can be used for a wide variety of purposes such as decorative protective trim.

PVC is popular due to its relatively low cost and is valued for its chemical inertness and flame and smoke retardant properties. It is used for a wide variety of plumbing applications such as pumps, filters, duct, strainers, and valves. PVC has amazing strength and can withstand high impacts and can be used in hot and cold low pressure systems. It is a great substitute for metal in places where corrosion is causing high maintenance costs.

UPVC is most often the choice of the building industry as a low-maintenance and relatively low cost building material. It can come in a wide range of finishes as well as colors and as such is often used as a substitute for wood in places such as window frames, siding, and weatherboarding. It can also serve the traditional PVC roles in plumbing, waste pipes, gutters, and downpipes.

Both PVC and UPVC are crucial in helping contracting builders and construction companies stay under budget while doing a solid and reliable job in new construction projects as well maintenance jobs of all shapes and types where strong and sturdy drainage and plumbing solutions are required.

PVC is the acronym for polyvinylchloride. It is a thermoplastic polymer. It is one of the most commonly used thermoplastic polymers, and is one of the highest revenue-generating products in the chemical industry. It is used to make electric wires, polyvinylchloride (PVC) pipes and unplasticised polyvinylchloride (uPVC) pipes.

The most common use of polyvinylchloride (PVC) is to make pipes. The pipes are most commonly used for the purposes of drainage and for protecting or containing the cables in buildings.
Unplasticised polyvinylchloride (abbreviated as uPVC) is a low maintenance material. It is used in the construction industry. It is available in a variety of colours and finishes. The photo-effect wood finish of unplasticised polyvinylchloride is used in window frames and window sills as a substitute for painted wood. It is also used as a replacement for older windows which have been installed with a single glazing or while installing double glazing in a new building.

PVC means Poly Vinyl Chloride which is name for an organic compound. With the further development, Ultra Poly Vinyl Chloride (UPVC) compound was formed. The pipes made by these compounds are named so.
