A homopolymer of PVC describes a polymer chain that is solely polyvinylchloride repeat units with no other co monomers or blended materials.  (the PVC homopolymer will still be a homo polymer if blended, but it will be a mixture not solely the homopolymer on its own).

Extenders are used in the form of other polymers or fillers to alter/adjust/effect the physical properties of the PVC. Some fillers will give better impact and scratch resistance, some polymers will improve gloss or adhesive properties etc.
Tonight I’m going to party like it’s on sale for $19.99!
