AURORA PLASTICS MATERIALS

PVC/Nitrile

Aurora Plastics offers a complete line of flexible PVC products that include PVC/Nitriles.

Unlike rigid PVC, AuroraFlex™ flexible PVC introduces a plasticizer into the formulation to give properties that are required for non-rigid applications. Aurora Plastics can provide flexible PVC from 35A to 95A Shore A Durometer* to semi-rigid, with specific gravities ranging from 1.15 to 1.65. We use various types of plasticizers to meet specific needs, such as renewable non-phthalate, improved low temperature tolerance and biocides.

Our team will also work with you to complete the formulation, with fillers in order to offer more specific properties, like reduced shrinkage, increased weight, pigment, lubrication, biocides, UV and chemical resistance.

AuroraFlex™ products can be used in a wide range of applications across many markets, including the automotive aftermarket, construction, furniture, footwear, hose and tubing, recreational and wire coating. For the footwear market, the PVC/Nitrile blends allow for excellent oil resistance, abrasion and slip resistance.

* NOTE: Durometer hardness is measured with a calibrated durometer using the Shore Type-A scale in a room of consistent temperature. The indenter is inserted for 15 seconds to determine if it passes the ASTM D2240-Durometer Hardness test for the desired durometer.
