What is the full form of PVC
PVC: Poly Vinyl Chloride
PVC stands for Poly Vinyl Chloride. It is a synthetic plastic polymer which is produced by polymerization of vinyl chloride. Its chemical formula is CH2=CHCl.
PVC is a thermoplastic material. This type of plastic melts on heating and solidifies on cooling. It is used in the manufacturing of wide range of products such as pipes, bottles, cables and raincoats.
PVC: Permanent Virtual Circuit
PVC stands for Permanent Virtual Circuit. It is a logical communication path between two terminals in a frame relay and asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) based networks. Unlike switched virtual circuit (SVC), PVC does not need to be reestablished each time data is to be sent as it does not disappear after sending the data. Once PVC is established, data path is maintained between terminals.
