Molding and Extrusion Compounds, Flexible PVC is a subcategory of Polyvinylchloride. It is specially formulated to molding and extrusion compounds, flexible. Its tensile strength ranges from 500 to 3000 MPa at break. Its elongation at break ranges from 150 to 450 %. Its hardness ranges from 10 to 100 Rockwell A. Its molding pressure ranges from 0.5 to 3 MPa.
Polyvinylchloride, also known as PVC, is a thermoplastic polymer. Common trade names are Geon and Viclon. poly(vinyl-butyral) Its flexible grades are easy to process; and its rigid grades are low cost and have high dielectric strength, excellent outdoor stability, good chemical resistance, and good moisture stability. Both grades have low heat resistance. It is commonly used in pipes and fittings, wire and cable insulation, extruded films and sheets, and medical applications.
