Super-Flexible Vinyl Compounds For Injection Moulding And Extrusion
01 May 2003
'Super-flexible' vinyl compounds for injection moulding and extrusion
Teknor Apex has introduced a range of 'super-flexible' pelletised vinyl
compounds called Apex, which have the softness and rubber-like traction
of plastisol-based PVC grades, yet can be processed through standard
injection moulding and extrusion equipment. Apex comes in three clear
grades with Shore A hardness levels of 39, 45 and 50.
In contrast to paste-like plastisols, which are dispersions of PVC
polymer in a liquid plasticiser carrier, Apex vinyl in pellet form avoids
plastisol related handling and quality control problems. The company
recently supplied a custom formulation of Apex for use in a commercial
application where traction was deemed to be a crucial requirement.
