The Many Different Applications of PVC Piping

Plastics evolved several times to become what they are today. When PVC was first introduced, the world didn’t know what to do with it or make of it until it discovered that the applications this substance had were limitless.

Today, most industrial atmospheres use PVC for virtually anything that needs parts manufactured. This specialized polymer can mold itself into a highly functional tool or part for practically any use. Read on to learn more about the many different applications of PVC piping that we know of and use today.

PVC Molding and Tool Making

One of the most basic things made of PVC today is the many millions of different plastic parts. PVC can be molded into just about any tool or part. These parts are extremely durable, too, which makes them even more valuable. Manufacturing of PVC to make parts was one of the first applications of PVC used industrially.

Coatings and Cable Insulation

For Internet cables, coaxial, Ethernet, and most basic lines, using PVC creates a protective sheath to insulate these cables from radio wave interference. PVC also serves the purpose of helping the signal get to the desired location through its protection.

Medical Equipment Applications

Modern medicine relies heavily on PVC to manage its ever-growing need for medical supplies. PVC is all throughout medicine, from syringes to lab tubes. Crash carts, ventilators, oxygen mask applicators, and basic splints and braces are all made with PVC, so you can see the need for this product worldwide.

Water Plumbing and Pipes

Because plastics are corrosion resistant, most water piping in urban areas of the world has been replaced with PVC piping. Not only is it resilient, but it will not rot and can last a lifetime. This is true with sewage waste management, as it serves as a perfect replacement for old sewage pipes.

Building Infrastructure

Most buildings these days are insulated with PVC. If not, then the piping will be secured with PVC of some form. This is now the new standard in plumbing.

Of all the many different applications of PVC piping, there isn’t one that is more important than the other. Without PVC, we would go back to using more primitive materials that don’t hold up as long and would cause more problems over shorter periods of time.

Noon briefing by Stephen Dujarric, Spokesperson for the Secretary-General. Highlights: - Ethiopia - Yemen - Libya - Sudan - Solomon Islands - Myanmar - Venezuelan Refugees - Shipwreck/English Channel - Covid-19/World Health Organization SUDAN The UN Integrated Transition Assistance Mission in Sudan (UNITAMS) said yesterday that it is gravely concerned by the significant rise in tribal and intercommunal violence, which has resulted in the loss of civilian lives and livelihoods, most recently in North Darfur and West Darfur. The UN Mission welcomes initial efforts reportedly taken by local authorities to respond to the situation and calls on regional and national authorities to immediately step-up efforts to de-escalate tensions, investigate the recent incidents, and prevent further violence. It stresses that the persistent insecurity in Darfur underscores the need for the Government and armed groups that have signed up to the Juba Peace Agreement to prioritize the protection of civilians in Darfur. UNITAMS reminds the Sudanese authorities’ that their responsibility to protect civilians is not diminished despite the current political situation. MYANMAR In a joint statement marking the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women yesterday and the beginning of the 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence, the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) and UN Women in Myanmar called for greater action to ensure the protection of women and girls and to increase the availability and accessibility of quality, multi-sectoral services, including health care, justice, safety, protection and social services for survivors, regardless of the political and security situation. In Myanmar, this requires support for the many civil society organizations – women civil society organizations and health civil society organizations in particular – who are running prevention programming and delivering services day in and day out in often incredibly complex circumstances. Myanmar’s continuing state of emergency following the military takeover of 1 February or COVID-19 restriction measures are not an excuse for violence against women and girls, UNFPA and UN Women said. In times of crises such as humanitarian crisis, conflicts, climate disasters and the COVID-19 pandemic, the prevalence of gender-based violence increases. A new report from UN Women, based on data from 13 countries, shows that 2 in 3 women reported that they or a woman they know experienced some form of violence during the pandemic. COVID-19/WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION The World Health Organization (WHO) is convening a virtual meeting with experts around the world on the recently reported COVID-19 variant, B 1.1.529. WHO anticipates it will take a few weeks to understand what the variant means and how it might impact diagnostics, therapeutics, and vaccines. Later today, the WHO will announce whether the variant will be classified as one of interest or of concern. WHO stresses the need for more people, everywhere, to be vaccinated.

United Nations Video: 'Human cost of war in cities is not inevitable, it is a choice' - UN Chief in Security Council


Related Videos On: 'Human cost of war in cities is not inevitable, it is a choice' - UN Chief in Security Council


Briefing by António Guterres, United Nations Secretary-General, on Protection of civilians in armed conflict - Security Council, 8953rd meeting. Mr. President, Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre, Excellencies, ladies and gentlemen, I thank Norway and Prime Minister for convening this open debate. I am pleased that Mr. Peter Maurer, the President of the International Committee of the Red Cross, has been able to join us. Today more than 50 million people are affected by conflict in urban areas. They face a number of distinct dangers. When hostilities take place in cities, civilians face a much higher risk of being killed or injured. In some cases, they may be mistaken for combatants. In others, harm to civilians is often entirely foreseeable, but parties to conflict do not take measures to avoid and minimize it. When explosive weapons are used in populated areas, around 90 per cent of those killed and injured are civilians. Mr. President, Excellencies, The use of explosive weapons in urban areas, particularly those with wide-area effects, carries a high risk of indiscriminate impact. Civilians can suffer devastating harm both in the immediate aftermath, and in the long-term. Many victims face lifelong disabilities and grave psychological trauma. Water, electricity and sanitation infrastructure are often damaged. Healthcare services are severely disrupted. To mention some examples: Scores of schools and healthcare facilities were damaged during fighting in Gaza last year. Nearly 800,000 people were left without access to piped water, increasing the risk of diseases and further hampering healthcare. In Afghanistan, an explosive attack outside a Kabul high school last May killed 90 students, mainly girls, and left another 240 people injured. Beyond the immediate pain and suffering, the indirect effects of damage to schools range from disruption to education to increased likelihood of early marriage and recruitment into armed groups. And a 2020 study in Yemen showed that the use of heavy explosive weapons in populated areas disrupted every resource and system in the country. From Afghanistan to Libya, Syria, Yemen and beyond, the risk of harm to civilians rises when combatants move among them and put military facilities and equipment near civilian infrastructure. Conflict in urban areas goes far beyond its immediate impact on civilians. It also puts people at risk of sieges and blockades, which have had a horrific impact on civilians, up to and including starvation. Urban warfare forces millions of people from their homes, contributing to record numbers of refugees and internally displaced people. Four years after the destruction of 80 per cent of housing in Mosul, Iraq, an estimated 300,000 people were still displaced. Warfare in cities creates millions of tons of debris that poses risks to both the environment and to people’s health. Unexploded ordnance make it too dangerous for people to return home. And mass destruction in urban areas sets development back by decades, undermining progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals. Mr. President, The frightening human cost of waging war in cities is not inevitable; it is a choice. I would like to outline some of the measures that prevent and mitigate its horrific impact. First, all parties must fully respect international humanitarian law. Recent years have seen increasing concern over compliance with these laws. Attacks against civilians or civilian infrastructure, indiscriminate attacks, and the use of civilians as a human shield, are prohibited. Parties to conflict must take steps to minimize incidental civilian harm. Respect for these rules is all the more critical when armed conflict is waged in urban areas. Moreover, accountability for serious violations is essential. Member States must demonstrate the political will to investigate and prosecute alleged war crimes to the maximum extent, whenever they occur. We owe that to the victims and their loved ones – and it is also crucial to serve as a powerful deterrent. Second, parties to conflict have options. They should adapt their choice of weapons and tactics when they wage war in cities, recognizing that they cannot fight in populated areas the way they would in open battlefields. Even when explosive weapons are used in compliance with the laws of war, they can cause devastating harm to civilians. The facts on the ground underline the need for warring parties to avoid the use of explosive weapons with wide-area effects in populated areas. I urge states to follow good practices to reduce the humanitarian impact of such weapons. The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs has published a compilation of military policy and practice in this regard... Full remarks: https://www.un.org/sg/en/node/261580

As the Omicron COVID-19 variant continues to drive increased cases and hospital admissions in Canada, several jurisdictions have changed the way they report hospitalizations. They now separate between those who are admitted due to COVID-19 and those who are admitted for another reason but test positive during screening. This is often being referred to as an "incidental COVID hospitalization" which means people in hospital with the disease are not necessarily there because of COVID-19. But doctors say there is a lot more to an incidental case than someone testing positive despite coming in for something like a broken arm or a fall. Sean Previl breaks down what "incidental COVID" means and why medical professionals are saying the numbers don't tell the whole story.

NASA’s $10-billion James Webb telescope – the successor to the famous Hubble Space telescope – is due to be launched into outer space this week. Rather than operating in the visible light spectrum and ultraviolet, as Hubble did, it will be able to look at the Infrared slice of the light spectrum, allowing it to see objects previously hidden to the Hubble's gaze. Astronomers say it will kick off a new era into the discoveries of the universe. Alyssa Julie explains why.

On Dec. 3, NASA announced three U.S. companies that would receive over $400 million in government funding to develop commercial space stations – Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin, Nanoracks and Northrop Grumman. The International Space Station, which is now more than 20 years old, is facing retirement within the next decade and the agency is turning to the private sector in its search for a replacement. NASA has increasingly tapped private companies, like Elon Musk's SpaceX, to shuttle its astronauts into space. As the private space race heats up, it's allowed the agency to turn its attention to new frontiers, but it also presents its own set of challenges. Alyssa Julie reports.

From viral vector vaccines like AstraZeneca to mRNA vaccines like Pfizer and Moderna, they all have the same goal: to train your body how to fight off COVID-19. But, they use different strategies to create antibodies. For example, AstraZeneca uses a crippled virus to deliver the coronavirus spike protein, while Pfizer and Moderna use mRNA, the part of the coronavirus' genetic code and teaches your cells how to make a protein that will trigger an immune response. Global’s Gloria Henriquez explains how the different COVID-19 vaccines available in Canada work.
