PVC

PVC is extremely cost effective in comparison to other plastics with a high degree of versatility in end-use applications. It is durable, easily maintained, and can be produced in a large range of colours. Outdoor weathering is also extremely good from suitably formulated material. Similarly, PVC can be used for food contact and medical applications. Clarity is good. It has a good combination of stiffness (particularly at low wall thickness) and impact strength, linked to non- flammability in rigid use. The dimensional stability is also good at ambient temperatures. It has resistance to many different chemicals, oils, and greases, and also has good water vapour barrier properties. In its flexible form, it has good electrical insulation properties.

Flexible or plasticizer PVC has been used to produce cable and wire insulation and sheathing for more than 50 years. The performance specification for PVC formulations employed for wire and cable coating or jacketing depends upon the nature of the wire and cable and the use to which it is to be put. Typically, wire and cables in automobiles are required to withstand temperatures as high as 150°C due to the heat generated by the passage of electricity through the cable and as low as -40°C to ensure the insulation is preserved if the automobile is subject to extreme weather conditions. Low temperature performance is also required for cables such as outdoor extension cables that are used in cold climates.

ACI has been produce PVC compounds or semi-finish product for the automotive sector. With the combinations of the right additives we have been developed compounds that fulfilled the high requires of the automotive standards.
