UPVC windows are widely used nowadays, but false beliefs have also been widely known. Here are some things that you need to know the truth about!
MYTH #1: UPVC windows are made from plastic and not strong enough.
TRUTH: The “u” in uPVC stands for “unplasticized” which means it contains if not zero, only a little amount of plasticizing agent. Salt is the primary chemical found in uPVC windows, NOT cheap plastic.
MYTH #2: uPVC windows tend to crack or warp due to direct sunlight especially during summer season
TRUTH: Plastic is prone to expanding in hot temperatures. BUT! uPVC contains no plasticizer (that’s why it’s unplasticized). uPVC windows are all-season windows and can withstand any harsh climatic conditions. Double-glazed windows are created using galvanized iron. So, even in the hottest summer months, these wouldn’t expand. They can retain their shape and size regardless of the weather conditions.
MYTH #3: uPVC windows are bad for the environment
TRUTH: uPVC materials has greater positive environmental impact since it has no plasticizing additive, NO PLASTIC! It’s eco-friendly with outstanding insulation properties resulting in reduced energy bills. uPVC can also be easily recycled after use, leaving no useless materials behind.
