Apex RM 8002 and RM 8004 rigid vinyl compounds for injection molding small- to medium-sized parts are NSF-61 certified. The compounds exhibit lower levels of thermal degradation during processing than many other PVC-based materials, have high heat-deflection temperatures, and resist impact. The compounds, which are made in NSF-certified plants in Rhode Island and California, are available in black, white, and the full range of colors.
