What's the difference between u-pvc and pvc-u?

Is there really any difference, one supplier claims better ageing, particularly colour, for pvc-u.

Basically there is no difference.
All that happened is that in our country uPVC changed it's name to PVC-U in the late 1980's to fall in line with our European friends. It seems that they were all calling it PVC-U because European languages mostly place the noun (being PVC in this case) before the adjective (U).
