Despite of the bad reputation of PVC this plastic is almost essential, hundreds of applications are based in this material due to its high degree of modification. Understanding all the additives and fillers and how the act in the PVC matrix is mandatory to obtain compounds with good quality to fulfill customer requirements.

Mixing it properly selecting the right mixing device will complement the goodness of the formula. These technical concepts are linked with the current scenario were PVC additives can be banned and the introduction of recycled plastic, circular economy and how it can affect to new formulas and applications.
