PERSTOP, Sweden — October 11, 2016 — Perstorp, a provider of PVC plasticizers and other specialty chemicals, has been awarded ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX® for its Pevalen™ (pentaerythritol tetravalerate or PETV) true non-phthalate plasticizer. This certifies that Pevalen can be used in sustainable textile production and verifies that using Pevalen in textiles has no harmful effects on human health or the environment.
“We are very proud to have received this important independent certification!” says Håkan Björnberg, Perstorp’s vice president of Innovation. “It confirms that Perstorp is on track with its ambitions to create safe and sustainable solutions.”
”Along with a continuously increasing demand for Pevalen because of its non-phthalate nature, we have also seen an increased demand for OEKO-TEX certification from the coated fabrics industry,” Björnberg notes. “This certificate assures customers requiring a high-performance non-phthalate plasticizer for their PVC coated textiles that Pevalen is the choice for them.” Perstorp is the first company to introduce PETV to the market.
Perstorp representatives will be discussing Pevalen — and other sustainable innovations for the plastics industry — at K 2016, on the stand of the company’s distribution partner Nordmann, Rassmann in Hall 8b (stand H29).
