Non Phthalate Flexible PVC Information

Phthalates are a family of compounds that have been used safely in plastics for over 40 years. Their main purpose is to make plastics softer and improve their performance. Find more information on phthalates:

Phthalates are colorless, oily liquids with little odor and low volatility used in a wide variety of everyday products. Their main purpose is to be used as a plasticizer in plastic products manufacturing. They make hard plastic, including polyvinyl chloride (PVC), flexible and soft without affecting the durability and lifespan. Global GP phthalate plasticizer production was developed over the last 60 years and has a capacity of 10-billion pounds.

Harman Corporation vigorously supports the extensive safety record associated with DIDP and DINP, two high molecular weight phthalate plasticizers used in the company’s flexible vinyl products. DIDP and DINP have a safety record that dates back over 50 years and has been objectively reviewed in studies conducted by:

  • Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)
  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
  • European Chemicals Bureau, EU
  • For a summary of related studies, please see the attached PDF:

Why Non Phthalate?

Many plastic products contain compounds called phthalates, which make plastics flexible and soft while extending their life. With the recent CPSIA ban of phthalates in children’s toys, non phthalate plastics are in greater demand for specialty applications. Read more to learn about non phthalate plastics and why they may be appropriate for your application.

Currently, there are many products that do contain phthalates including artificial leather, automotive interior components , garden hoses, vinyl flooring, personal care products and more. Toys and other children products have also been manufactured with phthalates. In 2008, Congress passed the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), which included a permanent ban on the use of 3 phthalates (DEHP, DBP and BBP) in toys and children’s products and a temporary ban in the same products of DIDP, DINP and DnOP pending further evaluation by a Chronic Hazards Advisory Panel. The ban includes child care articles for children age 3 and under and toys for children age 12 and under, all of which can be placed in the mouth.

As an active member of the Society of Plastics Industry – Vinyl Products Division, Harman Corporation has developed considerable knowledge of current scientific and regulatory environment surrounding these materials. While we vigorously defend the safe use of DIDP and DINP, we also developed non phthalate formulations and have been manufacturing products for some of the most recognized US toy manufacturers and other specialty applications for 2 years. These non phthalate formulas have been proven effective and compliant and are available in a range of colors and textures.
