PVC COMPOUNDS FOR RIGID TO SEMI-RIGID PARTS
As part of Americhem’s versatile line of high-performance thermoplastic compounds, Trivin™ rigid and semi-rigid PVC compounds are tailored to help original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and processors achieve specific requirements while offering exceptional strength, durability, hardness, weatherability and chemical resistance. For extrusion, engineered high heat, rigid and semi-rigid polymer compounds, Trivin™ ensures manufacturing ease, even for complex shapes. Its use in PVC injection molding permits the resin to be molded into thin sections.
Both extrusion and injection molding processes benefit from Trivin’s™ capability to produce high or low gloss finishes, lasting color, low shrinkage and excellent outdoor aging. You can count on Americhem to help you meet all your PVC molding or extrusion challenges when producing rigid or semi-rigid parts.

PVC PRODUCTS THAT OPTIMIZE PART PERFORMANCE
The automotive industry relies on PVC as a replacement for metal due to its light weight and functional properties. Trivin™ helps elevate PVC’s performance by modifying it with PVC additives that impart impact resistance, scratch resistance, abrasion resistance, chemical resistance and UV resistance. Our material scientists have the technical expertise to integrate specific ratios of additives that result in meaningful improvements while maintaining key physical properties and low weight. Trivin™ hardness levels range from 58 Shore D to 79 Shore D. Plasticizers can be added for semi-rigid applications that require a softer, more flexible design.
COLOR COMPETENCE WITH THE EXACT FINISH YOU NEED
Americhem continually monitors industry trends to develop color palettes that align with consumer preferences. We take the worry out of complex color challenges, collaborating with our customers to create custom PVC color formulas that yield exact color duplication in every lot of high-quality PVC compounds that we supply. Trivin™ combines our proven color science technologies with high gloss and low gloss finishes to assure brand harmony and help you shine in the marketplace.
