Summary

PVC window frame applications have been discussed including ecological and economical aspects. The situation in Austria and Germany has been presented in more detail. Multiple (more than tenfold) recycling of quick-aged PVC window frames makes it possible to incorporate up to 80% of the recyclate into new window frames. Technical (cheap raw materials, easy production), ecological (negligible impact) and economical factors (no maintenance, no degradation) render the PVC excellent as a material for window frames.
