What are UVPC Windows?

If you work in window machinery, it’s essential to know about your products. One potential product is a UPVC window, which is in many applications. So, what is a UPVC window?

UPVC (Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride) is a substitute for painted wood. It is mostly around window frames as an inexpensive building material. UPVC is also a type of vinyl.

In the rest of the article, we will detail common uses for UPVC. We will also compare them to PVC windows so you can determine your options in machinery.

What Makes UPVC Inexpensive?

Whether placing them on your window sill or wrapping them around the frame, UPVC is a cheap alternative to wood. What makes VVPC inexpensive is the vinyl material. As a result, the material is less desirable than a window with a wood frame.

However, suppose we know anything about the exterior of housing and fencing. In that case, we cannot undersell the usefulness and attractiveness it offers. UPVC windows are incredibly cost-effective, making them an easy investment for people who are looking for a pretty replacement. 

Also, UPVC has much lower maintenance costs than wood, as they typically require less care. They are also not made of plastic, making them great for working with steel. Their construction needs to follow specific building codes that also make them great at energy efficiency. 

What’s the Difference Between UPVC and PVC?

PVC is not allowed for children’s toys and baby products, but PVC is still part of fencing in some parts of the world. PVC is an unhealthy building material due to being made of a plastic product.

UPVC acts as a replacement to sustain a quality product without inferior building materials in your manufacturing process. 

If you find that someone is trying to sell something made of PVC material, you know not to buy it. UPVC window frames are not under the same restrictions. 

How Do You Color UPVC Windows?

Some people note that it can be challenging to paint your window frame with this material. If you need some help selecting the right paint to brighten up your tired windows, here are some suggestions: 

  • Spray Paint: Spray paint sticks to UPVC easily, especially when done as a professional job. If you have a window machine that provides spray paint, you already have this covered. 
  • Vinyl Wrap: While typically for automobiles, some people have done with a level of success. While there is always a chance that this might fall off, it works as a temporary solution.
  • Liquid Dip: Liquid dip is another temporary solution that applies a clean layer of color. Some people don’t like the results, given that it is more likely to flick away. 

While there is a wide variety of ordinary paints and paint brushes, they typically work as a permanent solution for UPVC. 

Wrap Up

While there’s some love for the natural wood appearance of a timber window, UPVC still provides you the option of keeping quality windows. Otherwise known as unplasticized polyvinyl chloride, the material is a bit tricky to paint. However, it offers an inexpensive solution for creating windows cheaply for your customers.
