Because of their corrosion resistance, the ease with which they can be worked and their ready availability, PVC and polythene are now widely used in the construction of plant and equipment ranging from beakers and valves to large gas‐washing plants. Here the author discusses first the limitations of these materials and then describes how they are applied to fabricated structures and equipment, linings, coatings and cements. Brief mention is made of other modern plastics. This article is substantially the paper which the author gave at a symposium on the fabrication of PVC and polythene at the College of Technology, Birmingham, on April 8.
