Introduction At present, rigid polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipes and fittings are one of the application fields of polyvinyl chloride products. After years of vigorous development, domestic special pipe resins such as spherical resins and green building materials resins have been developed to meet the needs of users. However, compared with developed countries, there are fewer special materials for PVC pipe fittings currently developed in China, and the market has yet to be developed. At present, plastic processing manufacturers generally use PVC resin with a polymerization degree of 1000 to process pipes, and the matching pipe fittings and valves generally use low polymerization degree SG-7 or SG-8 resin to manufacture PVC pipe fittings. The WS-800 grade resin produced by our company’s imported equipment is not only used in sheet and packaging material processing, but also used in pipe fittings processing. According to users’ feedback, the molecular weight of the 800PVC resin with a degree of polymerization is relatively high, and the dry fluidity and processing rheology of the resin used for processing pipe fittings are relatively poor, which is likely to cause poor surface finish of the product and uneven mold opening during injection molding. Therefore, users strongly hope that Chlor-Alkali Company can provide pipe fittings with a degree of polymerization of 700 to overcome the shortcomings of PSOOPVC resin processing pipe fittings. In view of the above shortcomings, the easy-to-process PVC resin for pipe fittings developed by our company’s technical center is undoubtedly another gratifying step in the development of the company’s special PVC resin. Together with the special resin for pipes, it becomes a series of products. Based on the successful development of the 10L kettle for PVC resin for pipe fittings, this project further optimized the process formula through the expansion test of the 300L kettle. The characteristics of the special PVC resin particles for pipe fittings with a degree of polymerization of 700 produced by the 300L reactor expansion test are close to the measured quality level of Shin-Etsu TK700 PVC resin.

2 Test results and discussion
2.1 Basic research on small test
2.1.1 The influence of the initiator system on the polymerization reaction and the degree of polymerization. The degree of polymerization 700 low molecular weight resin is manufactured at a higher polymerization temperature in the presence of a chain transfer agent. Therefore, the selected initiator activity must match the higher polymerization temperature. , It is necessary to consider the small effect with the chain transfer agent and low polymerization inhibition effect. At present, the initiators suitable for the manufacture of low molecular weight PVC can be provided by initiator manufacturers at home and abroad mainly include the following types, as shown in Table 2.
