Aurora Material Solutions offers rigid & flexible PVC compounds, like AuroraTec, that are ideal for furniture applications such as stand-alone compounds or in 2-part systems


Aurora Material Solutions offers rigid and flexible PVC compounds that are ideal for furniture applications.

  • Our AuroraTec™ RPVC compounds are highly versatile, and can be used as stand-alone compounds or as structural substrates, along with capstock, in two-part systems. Either way, these compounds provide a wide processing window and excellent impact resistance. Designed for the extrusion process, they are available in pellet or powder form in a wide range of colors. AuroraTec RPVC can be either clear or opaque. opaque PVC has additives, such as fillers and pigments to block transparency and impart a specific color. Clear rigid PVC is the same compound, just without the fillers and pigments.
  • With AuroraTec PVC composites, enhanced dimensional stability is achieved. At more than twice the tensile or flexural modulus of typical PVC substrates, higher performance-engineered profiles are possible. Combined with a lower coefficient of expansion, you also get significantly less contraction or expansion due to temperature fluctuations. They can be used as stand-alone compounds or as structural substrates, along with capstock, in two-part systems for applications that require high weatherability.
  • AuroraTec TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) composites are thermoplastic elastomers consisting of linear segmented block copolymers composed of hard and soft segments. These TPU grades are fiberglass-reinforced at varying levels. The fiberglass reinforcement offers excellent stiffness and mechanical strength while maintaining excellent abrasion, chemical, and oil and grease resistance, with improved heat resistance over an unreinforced TPU.
  • AuroraGuard™ TPOs (thermoplastic polyolefins) are multiphase compositions in which one phase consists of a material that is hard at room temperature and fluid when heated, and the other phase consists of an elastomeric material that is soft and rubberlike at room temperature. Aurora Material Solutions offers both halogenated and non-halogenated TPO based materials through its AuroraGuard product line.
  • AuroraFlex™ flexible PVC is a cost-effective alternative to our thermoplastic elastomers. These compounds provide flexible PVC from 35A to 95A Shore A durometer* to semi-rigid, with specific gravities ranging from 1.15 to 1.65. We use various types of compound additives to promote plasticity and flexibility to meet specific needs, such as renewable non-phthalate, improved low temperature tolerance and biocides. When you’re looking for a compound that offers high-abrasion resistance and excellent processing properties, AuroraFlex SL is designed to produce longer-lasting materials, with no tearing.
  • Unlike rigid PVC, AuroraFlex SBS and SEBS compounds utilize multiple TPE/TPR chemistries to impart high-performance properties for durability and easy processing. TPE options are available as low as 10A* up to 50D durometer hardness. Some of our TPEs are offered in clear, as well as oil free grades.
  • Auroralite™ cellular foam rigid PVC products make an excellent wood replacement, particularly in decking applications. They combine the maintenance-free features of vinyl with the matte finish look of painted wood. They allow easy nailing and screwing, while providing mildew resistance, rot resistance and weight reduction properties.
  • Our team will also work with you to complete the formulation, with fillers to offer more specific properties.
* NOTE: Durometer hardness is measured with a calibrated durometer using the Shore Type-A scale in a room of consistent temperature. The indenter is inserted for 15 seconds to determine if it passes the ASTM D2240-Durometer Hardness test for the desired durometer.
