Flexible PVC Applications :

Flexible PVC covered wire and cable for electrical application has customarily been stabilized with lead but these are being replaced, as in the rigid area, with calcium based systems.

Liquid mixed metal stabilizers is able to use in different PVC flexible applications such as calendered films, extruded profiles, injection moulded soles and footwear, extruded hoses and plastisols where PVC paste is spread on to a backing (flooring, wall covering, artificial leather).

Liquid mixed metal stabiliser systems are primarily based on Barium, Zinc and Calcium carboxylates.
In general liquid mixed metals like BaZn, CaZn need the addition of co-stabilisers, antioxidants and organo-phosphites to offer optimum performance.

BaZn stabilizers have successfully switched Cadmium-based stabilisers in Europe in many PVC semi-rigid and flexible usages according to the European manufacturers.
