What is U-PVC ?

U-PVC” is the abbreviation of the technical name for “Unplasticized Poly Vinyl Chloride”.

U-PVC is a leading material that can withstand the atmospheric conditions for its high durability sustainability along with it is an environmentally friendly material.

It is composed by mixing certain percentages of constituents, as provided for in the international standards, and the final material is composed of the following primary materials :-

  •       PVC
  •       Titanium Dioxide
  •       Calcium Carbonate.
  •       Impact treatment and stabilizers.

After mixing certain percentages of the above primary materials, section is produced and formed under certain temperature and standardized high qualities according to the international standards of quality in order to be characterized with its high resistance to each of UV, high temperature acids, heavy rains and soil.

Windows and doors made from UPVC materials are used in all types of buildings regardless of height, shape and various designs for the buildings.

Why UPVC ?

UPVC sections have designed and formed with high quality to withstand harsh conditions, indoors and outdoors, of all atmospheric forms and conditions. UPVC is characterized  with several characteristics compared to wood and aluminum.

To answer the above question “Why UPVC”, we provide the some of the said characteristics:-

  • Excellent Thermal Insulation
  • Impact Resistance
  • Sound and Noise Insulation (-30/-40 db)
  • Confirmed protection of acids
  • Complete insulation of electricity.
  • Rust resistance
  • Minimal escape of air.
  • Fire resistance “self-extinguishing”
  • High ability to rationalize the power used by conditioners.
  • Increase the efficiency of cooling and heating in consideration of the thermal insulation capacity reaching 1250 times larger than aluminum.
  • Minimal factor of expansion and shrinkage.
  • Attractive appearance.
  • High accuracy.
  • Withstanding the welded corners under pressure of 854 kg/cm2.
  • PVC sections used in windows and doors will give you the best sight that you did not see before and provide you a quiet place for residence or work.

Technical Specifications :-

UPVC physical characteristics :

Density 1.46 g/cm2
U-Value 1.9 watt/Flat Meter
Coefficient of Shrinkage 1.50% – 1.80%
Breakage Resistance (at 100) No breaks
Resistance of Atmospheric factors (change of colours) Delta E 2(no change in colour)


UPVC chemical characteristics :

UPVC material is designed from materials chemically-characterized with hih resistance to acids, alkalis, all kinds of fats, carbon acids, petrol and diesel. They further characterized with high resistance against high temperature, water and different chemical detergents.

The internal reinforcement for sections is composed of galvanized iron with galvanized thickness of 50-70 microns. Such reinforcement is put inside sections to fix accessories and also to give the required force straitness ; especially to with stand against wind strength which reaches to more than 130 km/h.


UPVC Coefficient of Thermal conductivity (K-Value) :

When UPVC is practically compared with other materials in labs, the following values are resulted :

U-PVC 0.13 Kcal/m2.hr.
Wood 0.12 Kcal/m2.hr.
Aluminum 175 Kcal/m2.hr.
Iron 50 Kcal/m2.hr.


With regard to double glass, it is notable that there are phase sections of three internal rooms and with simple mathematical processes after determining that K-Value for U-PVC is 1/1250 of aluminum, do provide 30% at least of the consumptive power and its loss.

Sound and Noise insulation rates :

Phase systems for U-PVC with its various designs and rooms absorb 30 to 40 dB more than aluminum with regard to the undesirable peripheral noise and sound because of special designs of internal and external rubber and double glass option.
