Acrylic Processing Aid is an innovative technique to enhance the quality of plastics. Different fabrication processes such as extrusion and injection molding are used to process plastic material with acrylic processing aid. The acrylic processing aid based polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plays a major role for manufacturing strong, flexible, durable, and cost-effective plastics.
PVC is the largest polymer type segment of the Acrylic Processing Aid Market. Asia Pacific was the largest market for acrylic processing aid in 2019, in terms of both volume and value. Factors such as the replacement of conventional material with PVC and rising demand for acrylic processing aid from Asia-Pacific will drive the Acrylic Processing Aid Market.
PVC is a synthetic resin, which is made from the polymerization of vinyl chloride. It has an amorphous structure with polar chlorine atoms and possesses fire retarding properties, durability, and oil & chemical resistance. It is an odorless and solid plastic, mainly used in automobile instrument panels, sheathing of electrical cables, pipes, and doors. PVC provides flexibility that is helpful in making modern automobiles cost-effective, safe, and of high quality. The composition of this material varies depending on requirement of various grades. It also helps in reducing the weight of vehicles because of its lightweight components in comparison to other materials. Most of the PVC resins are fabricated through extrusion, injection molding, thermoforming, calendaring, and blow molding to produce PVC products. This process requires a small amount of Acrylic Processing Aid during fabrication, depending on the type of application; for example, manufacturing of PVC pipes and window components requires less than 1.5 kg of Acrylic Processing Aid for 100 kg of PVC resin.
