Vinyl and Vinylidene Chlorides

Poly(vinyl chloride) is often highly plasticized to improve rheology for melt processing. It is highly susceptible to UV and high-temperature degradation and stabilizers (see Stabilizers in the Polymer Additives section) are commonly added. Copolymers are made with vinyl acetate and ethylene to improve rheology properties. Poly (vinylidene chloride), and some of its copolymers, are crystalline. Poly(vinylidenechloride) copolymers have self-adhesive (clinging) characteristics.
