PVC is one of the most important plastics in the world due to its ability to be formulated and to acquire different physical and mechanical properties, which is why it has found application in several industries and is considered one of the most widely used plastics. It finds great application in the construction industry as it is a relatively inexpensive material against other plastics, as well as being an excellent flame retardant.
By nature, PVC resin is a fine, porous, colorless and odorless powder, which by itself is useless. It requires additives, that here at Chemical Additives we offer, to be transformed into a finished product. There are functional additives that help PVC processing and there are those that give properties to the finished product. These are integrated into the resin by a mixing process where high speeds and temperatures are involved.
Our experience has taught us that polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a complex polymer to formulate, where a lot of technical knowledge is required to be able to understand the interaction between all the variables involved. Among its benefits is the power to change its physical properties to make it a very flexible or rigid plastic depending on the need of the product to be manufactured.
