polyvinyl chloride

 
a tasteless, odorless, clear hard resin with many industrial uses, including as packaging, clothing, and insulation of pipes and wires. Workers in its manufacture are at risk primarily because of the toxicity of its parent compound, vinyl chloride. Excessive inhalation of its dust can cause pneumoconiosis.

pol·y·vi·nyl chlo·ride (PVC),

(pol'ē-vī'nil klōr'īd),
A polymer plastic used as a rubber substitute in many industrial applications; suspected of being carcinogenic in humans.
