Covestro?s TPU Films Receive OEKO-TEX? Certification

Platilon® thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) films have recently been certified with Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX®, thus providing high level of product safety to consumers.

Suitability of Covestro’s TPU Films
The films were awarded certification for Product Class I. This applies to articles with direct skin contact for infants and young children up to three years of age. This means that they are associated with the highest demands placed on the skin-compatibility of the products.

These TPU films are also ideal for many smart and pollution-free textile applications. They are breathable, waterproof, tear-resistant and above all skin-friendly making them the material of choice for sports articles and outdoor clothing, but also for furniture and seat covers for cars.

OEKO-TEX® - An Independent Testing and Certification System
Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX® is a globally uniform, independent testing and certification system for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products at all stages of processing. The test criteria and limit values often go far beyond national and international specifications. The certification guarantees high and effective product safety.

Focusing aqueous, solvent-free raw materials in textile coatings, Covestro recently introduced Impranil® DLN-SD, aqueous polyurethane (PU) dispersion which according to initial findings facilitates production of biodegradable textile coatings.
