Rigid PVC feedstock foils have wide applications. Typical examples are rigid foils for packaging medical devices, enabling a wide variety of sterilisation, barrier and sealing processes. Other applications include credit cards, key cards, ID cards, furniture decoration and protection foils, or printable foils for labels and signs. On-line degassing of films is also possible with the calendering compounder by BUSS in order to ensure production of film without voids.
Feedstock foils made of soft PVC also have widespread applications. A prominent example is soft foil for medical use as blood and transfusion bags. Due to the excellent chemical resistance of soft calendered PVC foils, they are also used for making protective suits. Another example is in the construction industry, as sealing foils that can withstand extreme pressures. And last but not least are their wide applications for all kinds of floor coverings, whether single or multi layered, printed, sealed, etc.
