Aurora Plastic's AuroraTec™ interior/exterior grade rigid PVC compounds are ideal for use as ventilation components in HVAC systems.


Aurora Material Solutions provides a variety of compounds for HVAC applications, including AuroraFlex™ flexible compounds, AuroraTec™ rigid PVC compounds, and AuroraGuard™ heat-resistant polymers.

  • AuroraFlex flexible compounds are available in clear TPE, flexible PVC, SBS/SEBS, TPE, TPO an TPR.  Unlike rigid PVC, flexible PVC 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.
  • AuroraTec interior grade rigid PVC compounds are ideal for use as ventilation components in HVAC systems. They provide a wide processing window and excellent impact resistance.
  • AuroraTec PC/PBT (polycarbonate/ polybutylene terephthalate) compounds are made from alloys of amorphous polycarbonate and the semi-crystalline polybutylene terephthalate resin. They offer good chemical, impact and heat resistance, as well as outstanding aesthetic and processability characteristics. AuroraTec PC/PBT has Impact-modified grades that can provide a high level of impact strength at low temperatures. Impact-modified AuroraTec PC/PBT grades can provide a high level of impact strength at low temperature. There are also flame-retardant grades (both non-halogenated and brominated), glass filled grades, and UV (ultra-violet) stabilized grades for painted applications like automotive body panels. Designed for either extrusion or injection molding, they are available in pellet or powder form in a wide range of colors.
  • 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.
  • Our AuroraGuard PBT (polybutylene terephthalate) is an engineering polymer that is thermoplastic, semi-crystalline and a type of polyester. PBT provides excellent chemical resistance, shrinks very little during forming, is mechanically strong, heat-resistant up to 150°C (or 200°C with glass-fiber reinforcement), and can be treated with flame retardants to make it noncombustible. It is often used in automotive applications, including bumpers, tailgate outer panels and door handles.
  • AuroraGuard PC (polycarbonate) compounds are amorphous, thermoplastics that possess outstanding impact strength, excellent colorability, and superior heat resistance with good electrical and thermal properties, low- temperature toughness, and superior dimensional stability. They can be provided unfilled or filled with specialized fillers, mineral or fiberglass reinforcement. PC compounds are available in flame-retardant grades (both non-halogenated and brominated), a wide range of melt viscosities, and can be offered with recyclable PC content and ultraviolet (UV) stabilized grades for outdoor weatherable applications. The polycarbonate (PC) product family complies with FDA (Food and Drug Administration), REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals), NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) and UL listed (UL 94).
  • Our compounds are developed by a professional R&D staff with decades of formulating experience. We will work with you to determine the formulation that best meets your needs.
* 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.
