PVC is a material that has number of useful features. This makes it very valuable and widely used – typically, you will see it as some kind of protective covering. It works as a good covering because it is waterproof and it can protect items or areas from the elements. You will see it used as tarpaulin, a marquee, lorry side curtains and as a cover for boats and caravans (among plenty more applications). It is also cheap to manufacture and can look attractive too, making it a very useful material to use. You will see a lot of PVC coated fabrics now being used as a protective sheet – to create these sheets you will need a special set of tools to join and hem the materials together.
