The main objective of the present work is to study of the inherent degradation of PVC due to the effect of ultraviolet solar radiation. Another part of this paper used the change in electrical properties of PVC due to solar radiation exposure to determine the service life of PVC. The experimental results showed the relative dielectric constant whereas the relative permittivity of PVC due to increase time exposure of solar radiation according to Sudan Meteorological Authority Climatologically Normal in Khartoum Station (SMACNKHS 1981-2010).
