Extrusion Compound Apex 1545-D40 ST

Self-Texturing PVC Compounds

The new polyvinyl chloride (PVC) compounds Apex 1545-D40 ST by Teknor Apex Company, Pawtucket, Rhode Island, USA, are well-suited for the extrusion of smooth, structured surfaces of, e.g., molded parts and decorative trims to be used in vehicle bodies. According to supplier information, they will remain blemish-free, even after prolonged outdoor exposure. Their built-in self-texturing function makes further steps such as coating or embossing unnecessary. The compounds can be processed by co-extrusion. They adhere well to metals, and their physical properties are comparable to those of a standard PVC.

Typical properties include Shore C and D hardness in the 60 to 70 and 34 to 44 ranges, respectively, as well as specific gravity of 1.37 to 1.43, tensile strength 8 to 18 MPa, and elongation at break 150 to 250 %.

The compounds can be applied for the roof ditch moldings between roof and body sections, window lace trim between A pillars and windshield, and belt-line body trim. Current OEM approvals for the compounds include General Motors GMW 16084 and Chrysler MSDC 543. They are in commercial use on General Motors’ 2014 model year K2XX truck platforms.
