Flexible PVC RYT® Compounds for FOOTWEAR

Because of its physical strength and variety of colors – either transparent or opaque – soft or hard – PVC RYT® compounds are widely used in footwear manufacturing. These are high mechanical performance materials with an unmatched appearance.

The footwear industry requires materials with high mechanical resistance, efficiency in processing, innovation and superior appearance. PVC RYT® compounds are tailor-made to meet these demands.

The formulation of PVC compounds corresponds to the process under which polyvinyl chloride is modified by adding other ingredients and allows the use a great variety of plasticizers, stabilizers, lubricants, colorants and other modifiers. This is the reason why PVC is such a versatile raw material for this industrial sector.

The designer can select a soft material like skin, micro-porous for padded shoe soles, or fully rigid for the heels... Crystalline, translucent or opaque, sparkling shine, or matte finish, tints or solid colors, metallic, pearlized... With a scent of leather, lavender. or vanilla!

The following technical characteristics are important to the footwear industry:

  • Strength, flexibility, and rigidity
  • Specific gravity, density, and performance
  • Resistance to elongation and traction
  • Resistance to bending and abrasion
  • Color and appearance of the surface to the touch
  • Efficiency in the injection cycle
  • Adherence to leather, fabrics and other materials
  • Resistance to solvents, grease and other aggressive environments
