Why should you view this course?

In the PVC industry, the long-standing needs include efficient processing, enhancing product quality and cost-cutting. Experts recommend that you select the stabilizers carefully in order to achieve the same. But due to the lack of efficient knowledge transfer between the older & newer generation, the stabilizer one-pack is often viewed as a “black box”! And the added regulatory pressure (lead and tin stabilizers) makes the selection process more challenging. Join this course to:

  • Ease your selection process by getting a clear understanding on the various additives within the PVC stabilizer one-pack (co-stabilizers, lubricants, light stabilizers, processing aids, colorants...) their effects and unwanted side effects.

  • Solve unexpected problems faster (unwanted deposits during extrusion i.e. plate out, discolorations, formation of surface defects...) by applying systematic investigations

  • Meet today’s processing & quality needs while saving time, trials and money with expert guidance

Who should view this course?

  • Engineers, technicians, chemists in development, production, application engineering and quality control of PVC production and processing.
  • Participants from suppliers of stabilizer industry will get a chance to understand side effects with other additives while their materials are used.
