Today's pipe made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is used as basic good in different industries. The thermal stability of the PVC while is filled with ZnO nanoparticles was studied in this paper. This paper show that the stability of the PVC resin mixed with ZnO nanoparticles solution and Sn was better than that of the PVC resin mixed with Sn alone. The UV (ultraviolet)–vis spectra is showed that under certain heat treatment conditions, the PVC samples without ZnO nanoparticles solution embodied relatively high content of the conjugated double bonds with the chain length of about 3–5. However, the content of the conjugated double bond with the chain length of about 6 was greatly increased when the nanoparticles was filled into the PVC resin. This work shows the ZnO nanoparticles could inhibit the thermal degradation process of PVC resin in ionic mechanism.
