uPVC or PVCu?

It’s a common question in our industry, uPVC or PVCu, what’s the difference? Both refer to the same material and there is no difference whatsoever.

In the late 1980’s uPVC was changed to PVCu so that it would fit with term being used by the rest of the European market. European languages mainly place a noun (PVC) before an adjective (U) and so the ‘U’ changed ends.

PVC stands for Polyvinyl Chloride whilst the U stands for Unplasticised.
