What is a PVC Patch?

If we were in a room full of people and we were to ask the question:

Who Know What a PVC Patch is?

We could predict one of two things:

  1. A long silence
  2. Many guesses as answers

The reality is PVC patches are a fairly new promotional item and not many people are familiar with them.

Besides the technical term PVC is often times associated with a hard material use for piping.

In all fairness, the most accurate technical term for this products is Soft PVC Patches (or Soft Rubber Patches) which helps illustrate it in a more visual manner.
