Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) usage has gained a huge popularity among other polymers in industries, building sites, electrical, mechanical and household materials. The areas in which polyvinyl chloride (PVC) materials are needed, will determine the type of polyvinyl chlorides (PVCs) to be employed. This thesis work is based on the mechanical and structural changes of properties of the different polyvinyl chlorides (PVCs) when subjected to heating and load force on the heater and testometric tensile test machine in the laboratory. The results show that temperature changes have great impact on the different polyvinyl chloride (PVC) due to difference in additives. The mechanical properties like stress, strain etc. were affected. The structural appearances too were distorted when mounted on the testometric tensile testing machine by subjection of loading force.
