PVDC Resins (a.k.a. Polyvinylidene Chloride Resins, Vinylidene Chloride Copolymer) are clear semi-crystalline thermoplastic polymers, were among the first synthetic ones to be commercialized. They are produced by the polymerization of a vinylidene chloride monomer with other monomers such as acrylic esters and unsaturated carboxyl groups. Their most valuable property is low permeability to a wide range of gases and vapors. These copolymers are mostly used in the packaging of food, drugs, cosmetics, and other perishable or delicate products to extend shelf lifeto provide a good barrier to mass transport.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining PVDC Resins production. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (2019/20).
