Pittsburgh, PA (April, 2009) - Many people have never heard of phthalates (pronounced 'tha-lt'), and even more are unaware of what they are or what they do. Phthalates are plasticizers that make flexible vinyl softer. They have been used in the production of vinyl products, including flooring, shower curtains, and children's toys for decades. A recent ban of children's toys containing phthalates in the EU and in California has caused a number of issues. Bans that pass in California, like Prop 65, usually gain momentum and move across the country. There has been an increased demand for non-phthalate products, including PVC and fabrics. Where can manufacturers find vinyl and fabrics that contain no phthalates?
TMI, LLC, the nation's leading manufacturer and supplier of flexible PVC products, is the first supplier in the United States to carry a full line of non-phthalate flexible vinyl. To help manufacturers meet stringent production requirements, TMI has non-phthalate clear flexible PVC film, strip, and sheet, as well as a line of PVC coated fabrics.
While research shows that phthalates pose no health risk to humans, researchers hypothesize that exposure to phthalates, especially at a young age, may cause reproductive problems. Until now, many manufacturers have had no choice but to use vinyl and PVC coated fabrics containing phthalates. The TMI Group of Companies is the first to offer a broad line of non-phthalate products. Our ongoing commitment as a market and innovation leader is to develop next generation flexible PVC product solutions that meet and exceed market and government demands.
