PVC is a bad material for pens. It's very reactive. It stains easily. Prolonged contact with other plastics can leech plasticizers out of them and soften them to the point that they tear. PVC plasticizers are even known to be carcinogenic (cause cancer).

I do not think anyone use PVC for fountain pen at all, its just not the most appropiate material and its cost these days ( after ban on use of DEHP ) is also not enticing for any mass market type production either. in short you can had far better material at lower cost , so why use it. All those so call PVC fountain pen people keep reading about or seeing on the trade site are just thermo plastic / injection molded one
