Automotive Compounding Industry (ACI) was established in Portugal in 2011 by the family run Perplastic Group, which dates back to 1986 and manufactures compounds for the footwear industry. ACI's main area of activity is the manufacture of compounds for the production of cables and wiring, primarily for the automotive industry. In 2015, it started production of PVC compounds for automotive cable applications at a new manufacturing site in Mexico.


Product line:


ACI specialises in production of PVC and polyolefin compounds. It offers a portfolio of 29 basic compounds, which includes PVC-based composites and speciality polymers such as silicone that meet the specific application requirements of the automotive electrical wiring sector.


Product strengths:


ACI compounds are formulated to provide good stability and balanced mechanical properties. Key performance characteristics include low volatility and self- extinguishing fire behaviour, allowing them to be used in the most demanding automotive applications.
