PVC Poly Vinyl Chloride is an abbreviated form of the word. PVC is a thermoplastic made with carbon derived from petroleum or natural gas and chlorine derived from industrial salt. After blending with various additives, it is made into plastic and used by shaping at high temperatures. The flammability temperature of PVC is high because it contains chlorine and when it burns, it goes off by itself.
PVC window systems are manufactured from hard plastic with extruder technology at a temperature of 200 ° C. It is not possible to dissolve the carbon bonds of PVC, which takes shape, at ambient temperature. Therefore, it does not release any gases around. It is friendly to human health since it does not contain any varnish or paint-like chemicals.
PVC doors and windows used in solid state do not emit any gas at room temperature. The smell of a new PVC material may be the odor that has penetrated on it during production or during transportation, as in other materials. This fragrance passes in a short time. The fact that it is very effective in air and water tightness may cause the stench occurring inside to not come out at all. It will be beneficial to ventilate the environment by opening the windows from time to time.
There is always some water vapor in the air in our environment. When the warmed and moving air comes to cold surfaces in the interior, some of the water vapor in it is condensed and released as water on the surface and sweating occurs.
PVC profile manufacturers produce profiles with different dimensions and different features within each brand they produce. Each of these is called a series. The series differ from each other by differences such as shape, thickness, durability, longevity and insulation properties.
The number of chambers affects the thermal and sound performance value of the window. As the number of chambers increases, the insulation values increase. However, this cannot be achieved with profile width alone. In addition, efficiency can be achieved by changing the outer wall thickness and the structure of the support sheet.
Your window can be made with a white cloth using liquid detergents. Cleaning the water drain holes from time to time allows you to get better results for draining possible water inlets. During cleaning thinner, acetone, bleach, hydrochloric acid, with benzine, methylene chloride, kerosene and diesel, solvent type materials, bleach and abrasives such as dust and liquid detergents comprising solid particles must not be used .
Protective foils protect the window from impacts that may occur during transportation. As it is written on the foils, it must be removed immediately after assembly. If it is not removed immediately, the adhesive and paint on the foil can pass to the profile surface after a while under the influence of the sun and weather conditions. It is not possible to clean these spots and traces afterwards.
Making the right choice when changing windows means a trouble-free and quality life for many years. In addition to aesthetics, the window should also protect your home from external factors such as rain, snow, wind, noise, cold or hot weather.
First of all, the continuity and reliability of the brand you will choose
