PVC is a versatile thermoplastic polymer with a very wide range of potential uses. Flexible PVC has a significant presence in medical applications and is used in food packaging whereas rigid PVC has a dominating position in the building and construction industry and in general is a preferred option in many applications for outdoor usage. PVC needs additives for both processing and functionality in the final application and the polymer will not be of much use without a basic formulation of additives. Lubricants for processing are important. Anti-stats and anti-fogs are used in PVC for certain applications, but they are mostly in smaller volume applications in food and medical. Nevertheless, it is important that these additives have the necessary functionality to be migratory in PVC and be able to interact with atmospheric moisture levels or condensing water in packaging applications in order to reach acceptable performance levels.
