CUSTOM POLYVINYL CHLORIDE COMPOUNDS FOR AUTOMOTIVE INTERIORS
Americhem has supported the automotive industry for decades with PVC compounding solutions that help original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) provide high-quality, durable and aesthetically pleasing car interiors. Our V Series™ PVC Compounds line is one of several dedicated brands within our robust automotive interior materials offering. What makes the V Series™ so attractive to this competitive market is its exceptional strength, durability, weatherability, impact resistance, chemical resistance and stain resistance.
Superior resins are carefully selected and modified with PVC additives to maximize performance, longevity and colorfastness. V Series™ products are designed for easy processing during extrusion and injection molding. These polyvinyl chloride pellets have superior flow characteristics, allowing them to produce thin-walled parts while keeping PVC molding cavity pressures down.

EXPLORE THE BENEFITS OF PVC COMPOUNDS FOR CAR INTERIOR APPLICATIONS
Whether you are producing auto components with an extrusion manufacturing or injection molding process, Americhem V Series™ PVC Compounds can be enhanced to impart impact resistance, abrasion resistance, chemical resistance and UV resistance. Using functional additives, fillers, stabilizers, plasticizers and softening agents, our material scientists transform base PVC resins into unique formulas that push the innovation envelope while maintaining key physical properties and low weight. V Series™ PVC compounds can be engineered in hardness ranges from 55 Shore A to 79 Shore D to meet your automotive interior material needs.
PRE-COLORED SOLUTIONS WITH HIGH AND LOW-GLOSS FINISHES
Like many features in a car, the color of an automobile’s interior plays a crucial role in the consumer’s buying decision process. Americhem continually researches automotive industry trends to develop color palettes that align with consumer preferences. We offer a 60-year history of producing color concentrate and masterbatch solutions for automakers, employing these same proven color science technologies in our V Series™ brand of PVC compounds. We collaborate with our customers to create custom PVC color formulas that achieve exact color matching and duplication with excellent dispersion for even, long-lasting color. High gloss and low-gloss finishes are attainable for a distinctive look and durable, resilient performance.
PVC MATERIALS THAT MEET OR EXCEED AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY SPECIFICATIONS
Automotive interiors are subject to extreme temperatures, frequent user interaction, spills, cleaning chemicals and harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. The V Series has been designed with all these considerations in mind. We carefully select PVC base resins in superior grades to meet or exceed our customers’ expectations and specifications. Working within defined cost parameters, we develop PVC compounding solutions that allow you to produce both rigid PVC and flexible PVC components. Major automotive OEMs specify Americhem’s V Series™ for their vehicles’ center consoles, armrests, headrests, grab handles, parking brake handles, brake pads, heal pads and other internal parts and assemblies.
