PVC flooring was used in Germany because of its high resistance to scuffing. PVC’s ability to withstand attack by acids was utilized in the chemical industry prior to World War II. 7). Today PVC, in both rigid and plasticized forms, comprises one of the largest tonnage plastics materials, despite doubts about its stability and concerns since the 1980s about the potential of its plasticizers to damage children’s health and its manufacturing processes to damage the environment. Like PVC, polystyrene also experienced a long delay between synthesis and commercial development.
