Calcium & Zinc Stabilizers Manufacturing Business
Calcium-based stabilizers (including Ca-Zn) are largely used in wires and cables, in window and technical profiles (also foamed ones), and in any type of pipes (such as soil and sewer pipes, foam core pipes, pressure pipes, corrugated pipes, land drainage pipes and cable ducting) as well as the corresponding fittings.
Calcium-based stabilizers have also been introduced in PVC rigid calendering film production when improved organoleptics characteristics are required, for instance as alternative to tin mercaptides in transparent food packaging application or as alternative to tin carboxylates in PVC blown films shrinkable and for candy wrap. Similarly, calcium-based stabilizers are now an alternative to Liquid Mixed Metals (LMM) for several flexible applications, especially for the indoor ones, when stringent air quality requirements are in place (VOC).
Calcium Zinc Stabilizers are widely used in PVC rigid and flexible objects. Calcium Zinc Stabilizers are used for manufacturing products like pipes, medical applications, footwear, cables, profiles, as it is a metal free stabilizer. Calcium Zinc Stabilizers are also suitable for non-toxic and food grade PVC items that require FDA and/or similar approval, under food regulatory acts. With high heat stability, it also provides low odour and the most compelling attribute of Calcium Zinc Stabilizers is that they are highly cost effective.
The use of calcium/zinc stabiliser systems has been common in PVC. Because of the characteristics of calcium/zinc stabilised materials they are widely used in many flexible and rigid PVC applications. This type of stabilising system can give products which have a high degree of clarity, good mechanical and electrical properties, excellent organoleptic properties and good outdoor weatherability.
Calcium Zinc Stabilizer is stringently tested on various parameters of quality in order to ensure quality. Offered range can be used in wide range of applications such as toys, healthcare products, such as blood bags, semi-rigid and flexible foil for food packaging. Calcium/zinc stabilizers have been used in a wide range of applications. These include toys, health care products, such as blood bags, semi-rigid and flexible foil for food packaging, bottles for potable water, as well as for potable water pipe.

Application:- PVC pipes -fitting, electric wire and cable, uPVC pipes-fittings, PVC clothing, PVC furniture, PVC medical tubes and parts, PVC flooring, PVC door-window, PVC footwear, PVC stretch film, PVC celuka foam board/sheet and other many application. Calcium-Zinc based stabilizers (Ca-Zn) are new generation stabilizers which gained importance in PVC market.
The global market for stabilizers to increase to approx. US$5.3 billion in 2021. Calcium Zinc stabilizer for PVC are used direct or combination to prevent the various effect such direct or indirect impact of heat and ultraviolet light. This is lead free stabilizer so from last 10 to 15 year due to health and environmental concern. Its consumption is increasing in Europe, USA and Asia.
Calcium, zinc and lead are among dominant product segment for stabilizers. Calcium based stabilizers dominate the global demand for stabilizers and the trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period. Cadmium based stabilizers dominated the global demand for stabilizers however owing to environmental concerns; cadmium was completely substituted with other materials such as lead. Calcium and zinc stabilizers not only have good compatibility and control of viscosity, but also provide good initial coloring and color retention.
Major players in the stabilizer market include Eastman Chemical Products Inc., BASF Wyandotte Corp., Chemipro Kasei Kaisha LTD and American Cyanamid Co. among others.
