Abstract: The mixtures of poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) with thermo-oxidatively modified poly(vinyl alcohol) (B) or acetalized poly(vinyl alcohol) (D) were used as the dispersants in suspension vinyl chloride homopolymerizations in compositions at wr(total, VC) = 0.1 mass %. Unmodified commercial PVA Alcotex 72.5 (A) produces porous poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) grains with fast plasticizer absorption and low bulk density. Modified PVA B or D produce less porous PVC with substantially higher bulk densities. Defined mixtures of A with B or D can be used for the manufacturing of tailor-made PVC grades with required grain morphology, characterized by the grain size, porosity, and the bulk density.
