Mar 31, 2017 The process for making PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is a mystery to most. Words like ethylene dichloride and VCM are not typically used in daily conversation. You may be surprised to find out what two naturally occurring ingredients are the base for all vinyl compounds. Teknor Apex has been an innovator in the PVC compound industry for more than six decades.
The VCM Production Process Overview. Producing sales quality PVC from raw materials involves several steps. Initially, ethylene dichloride (EDC) must be produced from the feed stocks of ethylene and chlorine. The EDC is then thermally cracked to produce vinyl chloride (VCM), which is the chemical precursor to the PVC polymer.
Oxychlorination occurs when hydrogen chloride, produced as a by-product of the thermal cracking of EDC, reacts with ethylene in the presence of catalyst and air (or oxygen), and EDC is again obtained. When EDC from the oxychlorination process is dehydrated and then thermally cracked (together with the EDC from the direct chlorination process), VCM is obtained.
