PVC, Plasticizers and Sustainability

PVC additives and modifiers play a significant role in creating safer, cleaner and durable PVC solutions. Additives such as heat and light stabilizers help improve resistance of PVC products at high temperature and shield them from UV degradation.

Another important additive, plasticizers improve the flexibility, extensibility and processability of PVC. But, despite these important attributes that they provide to PVC, there is an increasing amount of regulatory actions coming up against these products and companies are finding solutions towards development of phthalate alternatives.
