Vinyl Window Material
Vinyl window material for windows & doors
Vinyl is the common name given to a polymer called Poly-Vinyl Chloride. There are SO many things that contain PVC, but in the case of the window specifically, the polymer (PVC) is blended with additives that allow it to be molded into window frames, and also helps to resist sun degradation. This process of creating a frame differs with other materials.
Window framing is typically composed of either wood, aluminum or vinyl. So yes, a vinyl window is one where the framing is made up of vinyl.
