Innovative Mexichem Solution -- Vestolit Flex

February 25 2019

A patented alternative to PVC resin made by Mexichem’s Vestolit brand in Germany is producing safer, longer-lasting and more energy efficient flexible plastics.

Mexichem’s Vinyl Business Group has been investigating how to make better PVC resins at its Research and Development laboratory in Marl, Germany, and has created and patented a new generation of intrinsic plasticized PVC – Vestolit Flex.

Vestolit Flex is a new type of flexible PVC, made with a non-liquid alternative to plasticizers. The plasticizing component is chemically bound to the PVC structure and will not leach over time.

That means insulation that will protect telecom and datacom cables for decades, even in the toughest conditions. At the Marl research lab, chemists are also working to develop new Vestolit Flex resins that are more resistant to ultraviolet rays and heat resistant, which could lead to products that last even longer in tough conditions, as well as generating cooler vehicles and energy savings elsewhere.
