Is Vinyl Rubber?


Answer by  fatimawafy (14)

No, Vinyl is not rubber. Vinyl is not a natural substance but is a synthetic man-made material. It is a type of plastic that is made from ethylene and chlorine. During the process both the substances are combined to form Polyvinyl Chloride resin, which is what we call "Vinyl".

No. Vinyl is generic term that covers many different formulations of plastic and polymers. Chemicals and petroleum products make vinyl. Rubber is a natural product that comes from rubber trees. Then it's refined.

Vinyl is not rubber. Rubber is stretchable, whereas vinyl is not. If anything, vinyl is probably more similar to leather.
