PVC plasticizers forbidden in 2020

In 2020 and 2021, several new bans will begin to apply for chemicals within the European Union. In its latest issue, “Miljö & Utveckling” has listed which chemicals will have a particularly significant impact on the market.

These include, among other things, plasticizers for PVC plastic that are very common in the transfer market. After July 7, 2020, products containing DEHP, DBP, BBP and DIBP may not be found individually, or in a content of 0.1% by weight or higher, in the plasticized material. These substances are used to make PVC plastic soft and can affect reproduction and hormone balance.

In 1996 Perma Press stopped using PVC and dangerous plasticizers in our production. Now, 24 years later, others in the industry are being forced to actively distance themselves.
