Castor Oil for PVC-P with reduced carbon footprint

AgenziaChimicaItalianaPVC-P compound for injection of products based on BIOVYN 264PC as polymer matrix. In order to further reduce the carbon footprint of the product, the plasticiser used is integrally bio-based from hydrogenated castor oil sources. For a broad field of uses, from leisure clothes to sink gaskets. Over several years we tested different solutions of bio-based plasticisers on PVC-P compounds. Using this specific grade of bio-based plasticizers we achieved the final good result, including after oven tests.
