PVC compounds

Polyvinyl chloride compounds purpose-designed for a wide variety of applications

Since the early days of Mexichem and Alpha Chemical & Plastics in the 1960s, our PVC compound portfolio has grown extensively, both through acquisition and by formulating next-generation materials.  Today, we have literally thousands of formulations, many custom-designed to meet specific customer requirements.  To stay in compliance with today's regulatory requirements, we offer materials formulated without reportable phthalates and materials that are REACH, RoHS, and Prop 65 compliant.  Bring us your requirements and we'll offer a solution!

Throughout numerous acquisitions, we have bolted-on several product brands and have kept the heritage brand names to support our customers who have approvals with legacy products.   ​

PVC compounds designed for unique market sectors

We understand each market sector is unique and requires different performance criteria.  Choose from off-the-shelf options or bring us your unique requirements and watch us work!  

 

Over the decades, our portfolio has expanded through innovation and acquisition.  We have kept heritage brand names to support customers who have approvals with legacy products.   The Alphagary group includes Alphagary, Bayshore, Mexichem, Sylvin, Vinyl Compounds, and a shared partnership with Shakun Polymers. ​
