PVC is the most widely used polymer in the world. A highly flexible and cost effective material, has distinguished itself internationally as a durable plastic material and with the widest range of applications of any plastic.
PVC can come in various forms, which allows it to be very versatile. Conductive PVC material (Also known as “ วัสดุพีวีซีนำไฟฟ้า “ in the Thai Language) can be shaped and reshaped quite easily by heating the material, and it always hardens again after cooling.
These and other adaptability made possible by the insertion of an additive which can change its colour, elasticity, conductivity, and chemical resistance.
Before PVC can be made into a certain product, these various speciality additives combined with the original polymer base. These additives may consist of lubricants, stabilisers, fillers, pigments, and others.
The preferred additives are mixed with polymers in a process called compounding which can be achieved through different methods which combine blending and / or melt.,
The two main types of this material are rigid and flexible PVC compounds. For a variety of flexible, plasticisers should be included. Once added, plasticizers allow the material to become more elastic while still retaining its shape.
This form has properties similar to rubber. Soft PVC is distinguished by its ability to be used in a variety of ways.
