Polyvinyl Chloride, better known as PVC

You’ve probably heard about PVC and you surely have some items at home with that polymer. Polyvinyl Chloride is one of the plastic materials most widely used in the world by different industry sectors, directly impacting our quality of life  and contributing to a more sustainable future.


Unique features, infinite versatility

Among PVC’s main properties, the most important ones are its excellent durability, its high resistance to deterioration by chemical or physical agents, and its impermeability and no flame spread, which make it a very safe, 100% recyclable material.

PVC is the first option for many industry sectors

One of PVC’s most known applications is civil construction. The material is used to manufacture tubes, wires, windows, roofs, laminations, paints, floors, drainpipes and siphon pipes enclosures. In our homes, we can also find it in the furniture and decorative items such as cabinets, chairs, carpets, lamps, curtains and more. 

The material is also essential for the textile industry, in the manufacture of laminates and the application of prints, in the production of toys and sports elements, in the manufacture of packaging, sealants and labels and even in industrial machines, among others.

The medical field is another important area that benefits from the use of this versatile resin. In this sector, PVC is used to produce hoses, tubes, bags and other surgical and hospital materials. In the automotive industry, the polymer is considered a commodity and is present in many parts of a vehicle. It has so many applications, hasn’t it? But PVC’s applications do not end there!

It is also critical for the textile industry, in the manufacture of laminations and in printing applications, in the production of toys and sport items, as well as in packaging, sealers, labels and even in industrial machines.

Sodium Hypochlorite Reactor

 Hypochlorite is produced by a reaction between gaseous Chlorine and a Caustic soda solution being cooled down.


EDC Reactor

EDC (Dichloroethane) is obtained through a reaction between liquid chlorine and ethylene (inserted through a tube) and it is purified by distillation.


Hydrochloric Acid Reaction Furnace

Hydrochloric acid is produced by a controlled combustion reaction of Chlorine and hydrogen, followed by absorption in treated water.



Caustic soda is produced by electrolysis and reduced through the evaporation process.



 Then, the Soda is cooled down and stored in tanks, before being shipped.


(8) Cooling Chlorine

(9) Chlorine Withdrawal

(10) Chlorine Compression

(8) The produced gaseous chlorine is cooled down, (9) dried out and (10) compressed. After being compressed, it turns into a liquid state at low temperature.

(4) Filtration

(5) Control

(3) The PICKLE is about eliminating foreign bodies; it is filtered (4) and undergoes a strict control (5) before feeding the ELECTROLYTIC CELLS.

(5) Control

(3) La salmuera se trata para eliminar impurezas, se filtra (4) y pasa por un estricto control (5) para alimentar las CÉLULAS ELECTROLÍTICAS.



If there are salt (sodium chloride) and water in stock, you need to supply our transformers with electricity.


(11) Licuefacción de Cloro

(12) Almacenamiento de Cloro

(11) El cloro en esta forma se almacena en tanques (12) donde se carga en camiones especiales


Sala de Celdas

La ELECTRÓLISIS tiene lugar en la celda. Y así, la energía eléctrica actúa sobre la salmuera y la transforma en SODA CÁUSTICA, CLORO E HIDRÓGENO.

News coming soon



A Soda Cáustica é produzida na eletrólise e concentrada pelo processo de evaporação.


Cell Room

The ELECTROLYSIS takes place in the cell. This way, electric energy acts on the brine and transforms it into CAUSTIC SODA, CHLORINE AND HYDROGEN.

(3) A SALMOURA é tratada para eliminar impurezas, filtrada (4) e passa sob um rigoroso controle (5) para alimentar as CÉLULAS ELETROLÍTICAS.



Next, prepare the PICKLE obtained from dissolving the salt in the water to use afterwards in the ELECTROLYSIS.
