Homopolymer PVC


Kanevinyl™ S and KS Series, Kaneka's Homopolymer PVC products, come in a wide range of polymerization, from low to high degrees, and can be used in many different molding methods as rigid and soft applications.


Detailed Data


Wide-ranging applications, including building materials, electric wires/cables, leather sheeting, industrial materials, lifelines and packaging.

Advantages of Homopolymer PVC

We have provided a lineup extending from low K values (low polymerization degree) to high K values (high polymerization degree) which can be used in a wide range of applications by blending in plasticizers and/or lubricants.
Low K value (low polymerization degree) grades have outstanding transparency and hue, and are particularly well regarded in the plate and rigid sheet applications. Their excellent fluidity in a molten state means that they can also be used in injection molding.
Soft applications grade, which are used as electric wires/cables and as flexible sheets, have excellent plasticizer absorption, and an outstanding fisheye level.
Our lineup also contains a high K value (high polymerization degree) grade which can be used in cold-resistant cables.
