ESPA represents the majority of the PVC stabiliser producers across Europe.
It includes the European Calcium Organic Stabilisers Association (ECOSA), the European Liquid Stabilisers Association (ELISA) and the European Tin Stabilisers Association (ETINSA).
Stabilisers are added to PVC to allow its processing and to improve its resistance especially in outdoor applications, weathering and heat ageing and have an important influence on the physical properties of PVC finished articles. Factors such as process technology involved, technical requirements of PVC end product, regulatory requirements and cost, influence the choice of the stabiliser used.
