With regard to the production of PVC pipes and their stabilization, the U.S. pipe market is still dominated by tin-based stabilizers. In comparison, Ca-based stabilizers offer a number of advantages. As a result, they are standard in Europe, and the South American pipe market is on the change to Ca-based stabilizers.

Baerlocher has been the main protagonists worldwide in the development and establishment of sustainable Ca-based stabilizers. In his speech, Dr. Udo Anders, Technical Product Manager PVC Additives for Pipes at Baerlocher, will explain the differences in markets and technologies as well as the cost drivers.
