This is how our company initiated the marketing and sales of various PVC ADDITIVES in Turkey. Sales are either in form of Proforma invoices when serving our large capacity customers, or they are conducted out of our own stocks in our Istanbul storage. Sales from our storage are designed perfectly for a swift delivery of shipments in small quantities.

Mexichem Specialty Compounds (formerly ALPHAGARY): Our company has traditionally been providing PVC compounds to the cable sector and had been advising those companies for many years. In recent years, there has been a new trend in Europe and in the United States. HALOGEN FREE FLAME RETARDANT (HFFR) was a new technology and started gaining in popularity. Polivinil Plastik has identified this trend and took leadership in introducing this special product to the cable sector. This was possible through our partnership with ALPHAGARY (new name is MEXICHEM Specialty Compounds) as we have started to introduce their products since 1998. MEGOLON trademarked ALPHAGARY's HALOGEN FREE, FLAME RETARDANT (LOW SMOKE) (HFFR) product is used in applications that have a different OXYGEN INDEX. The mechanic values in addition to HM-2 and HM-4 are suitable in particular for LTS 1, 2, 3, 4 category cable production. For our large capacity customers, we conduct our sales on proforma basis. Again, for small quantity customers, we always make sure to keep sufficient stocks in our storage. HFFR (Halojen Free Flame Retardant) is a special compound that does not contain any halogen or any chlore. It belongs to the polymer group such as poliethilen(PE), polipropilen (PP) ve etilen vinil asetat (EVA). It also contains flame retardants in its composition.
Since 2011, MEXICHEM Specialty Compounds is a sister company of Mexichem and is specialized in flame retardant PVC, Low Smoke Zero Halogen, Termoplastics, Elastomer ve products that belong to olefen group. Through the merger with Mexichem, the product pallette of AlphaGary increased to more variaties than previously: Megolon®, Garaflex®, Smokeguard®, Evoprene®, Garathane®, Alphaseal®, Micraflo®.
Other Suppliers in the Plastics Additives Sector: POLİVİNİL PLASTİK also provides its customers with internal and external lubricants which are crucial in PVC production process. For Lubricants, Antibloking ve Antistatic agents are supplied through EMERY's LOXIOL trademarked product.
Finally, the category of UV ABSORBERS ve ANTIOXYDANTS, another key component in the production process, are sourced from BASF (formerly Ciba Geigy) with trademarks called TINUVIN and IRGANOX. POLİVİNİL PLASTİK keeps stocks of these products in its storage at all times.
POLİVİNİL PLASTİK does not hesitate to help all institutions involved in PVC Compounds, especially supports companies with formulas regardless if they are preparing themselves to enter the market as producer company or if they already have experience in their own areas of specialization.
