Not if you just heat it up in sections, nothing says you have to do the entire length at once.

And I know you can use heat to form ABS too, I used to know someone that made his own suit of armor from grey ABS plastic but I never got around to finding out how he heated it.

At least I think it was ABS... this was a very long time ago at an SCA event and there was wine involved.

The only time I've seen PVC shatter was when it'd been left out where it'd be in the sun for a very long time, like years.
