POLYVINYL CHLORIDE RESINS (PVC – SUSPENSION GRADES)
PVC is an acronym for polyvinyl chloride. It is a synthetic resin belonging to the family of polymeric organic compounds, manufactured by bulk, solution, suspension, and emulsion polymerization of vinyl chloride monomer, with free-radical initiators (peroxide catalyst), usually in aqueous suspension or emulsion. PVC Resin is a white powder commonly used to produce thermoplastics.
LOW DENSITY POLYETHYLENE FILMS (LDPE)
LDPE film is an abbreviation for low density polyethylene film. The varieties of Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) film resins have evolved to match the myriad applications for specific large markets for LDPE films. A few examples of resins which work only for specific LDPE plastic film applications are – dry cleaner bags, bread bags, paper towel overwrap, shipping sacks and so on.
ETHYLENE VINYL ACETATE COPOLYMER (EVA)
Ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA), also known as poly (ethylene-vinyl acetate) (PEVA), is the copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate. The weight percent vinyl acetate usually varies from 10 to 40%, with the remainder being ethylene. EVA is used as padding in equipment for various sports such as ski boots, bicycle saddles, hockey pads, boxing and mixed martial arts gloves and helmets, wakeboard boots, waterski boots, fishing rods and fishing reel handles.
Polycarbonate resin (PC resin) is a type of thermoplastic component used in the manufacturing of certain plastics. While the specific attributes of each resin differs according to its exact composition and extraction method, each is synthesized via catalyst from monomers called hydrocarbons, in a process known as condensation polymerization. These properties make polycarbonate resin suitable for manufacturing a wide variety of products that require exceptional stress and heat resistance, such as compact discs, hockey masks, eyeglasses, automobile parts, etc.
ABS is a terpolymer made by polymerizing styrene and acrylonitrile in the presence of polybutadiene. The proportions can vary from 15 to 35% acrylonitrile, 5 to 30% butadiene and 40 to 60% styrene. The nitrile groups make ABS stronger than pure polystyrene. The styrene gives the plastic a shiny, impervious surface. The polybutadiene, a rubbery substance, provides toughness even at low temperatures. ABS’s light-weightedness make it useful for manufacturing products such as drain-waste-vent (DWV) pipe systems, musical instruments (recorders, plastic clarinets, and piano movements), golf club heads, automotive trim components, etc.
THERMOPLASTIC POLYURETHANE (TPU)
Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) is any of a class of polyurethane plastics with many properties, including elasticity, transparency, and resistance to oil, grease and abrasion. Technically, they are thermoplastic elastomers consisting of linear segmented block copolymers composed of hard and soft segments. TPU has many applications including automotive instrument panels, caster wheels, power tools, sporting goods, medical devices, drive belts, footwear, inflatable rafts, and a variety of extruded film, sheet and profile applications, and so on.
Bitumen is a sticky, black, and highly viscous liquid or semi-solid form of petroleum. It may be found in natural deposits or may be a refined product, and is classed as a pitch. Bitumen Penetration Grade 60/70 (VG. 30/40) is a standard penetration grade. Bitumen is usually used as a paving and grade bitumen is suitable for road construction and for the production of asphalt pavements; mainly imported from different refineries from U.A.E.
