The main methods of physical modification of PVC materials is the combination with other polymers, including PS plastic, and the creation of polymer (nano) composites containing metal and silicate fillers. Modification of polyvinyl chloride by polystyrene plastic leads to obtain materials with reduced degree of plasticizer release out of matter volume, adjustable elastic-plastic characteristics, and enhanced physico - mechanical and thermal properties. Physical modification of vinyl chloride polymers by other polymers or nanoscale particles of inorganic nature enables predictable affect on the morphology of these materials and directed regulate their technological and performance properties.
