PolyVinyl Chloride

 

Polyvinyl Chloride

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a chlorinated hydrocarbon polymer produced commercially from vinyl chloride monomer (CH2=CHCl) by free radical polymerization in an aqueous suspension process.

OxyVinyls offers a full product line of PVC resins suitable for most vinyl production applications and maintains the highest quality standards in its manufacturing plants, all of which are ISO 9002 certified. Its reliable manufacturing operations lead the industry with an integrated raw material position. The resulting low-cost production position enables us to supply customers consistently, even through major swings in the commodity business cycle.

All products are manufactured under stringent safety and environmental standards and guidelines.

PVC products from OxyVinyls are available as a dry powder in bulk (railcars and bulk trucks) and packaged in bags. Export shipments can be in bags, bulk bags, and other semi-bulk packages.
