Denver, Pennsylvania-based Sylvin Technologies, Inc. has developed a new and innovative series of biobased flexible pvc compounds made with only FDA sanctioned ingredients.
Formulated from renewable feedstock, Sylvin’s new 39 series compounds are formulated with a plant-based plasticizer rather than traditional petroleum-based plasticizers such as phthalates. The 39 series incorporates only ingredients that are sanctioned for use by the FDA and the compounds have the same feel, flexibility and ease of processing as traditional flexible vinyl products. “With today’s increasing regulations, we recognized the need for eco-friendly alternatives that are also compliant with the FDA’s stringent requirements,” said Chris O’Connell, Vice President of Sales. “These products allow FDA applications to offer a lower carbon footprint without compromising performance.”
39 Series compounds are suitable for both injection molding and extrusion processing and are available in 55-95 Shore A hardness. Compounds can be purchased clear or in custom colors and can be tailored to meet the specific performance and regulatory requirements of a wide variety of applications including tubing, toys, food processing belting and medical devices.
