Modification of poly(vinyl chloride) by chemical crosslinking has aroused wide interest because of the improvements of the elevated temperature properties of PVC.
This improvement is most clearly observed at high temperatures, because at room temperature there is a physical network present produced by the presence of crystallites as well as the covalent network produced by chemical crosslinking.
