Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) was one of the first thermoplastics developed. Despite the fact that PVC has a low thermal stability, processing at elevated temperatures is possible by adding specific heat stabilizers. This is one of the main reasons PVC has become a major bulk plastic.

BASF offers specific additives particularly suitable to control polyvinyl chloride (PVC) polymerization. They protect the substrates against thermal degradation of PVC during manufacturing, processing and end-use.
