PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is a functional and durable polymer. It has been used for many years for applications as diverse as blood donation bags and truck tarps. However, PVC has been considered controversial with regards to ecological and health aspects, due to phthalates and other plasticizers added to make the material softer. These softeners accumulate in the environment and are suspected to cause cancer.
The discussion about the general advantages and disadvantages of PVC are well known. ORTLIEB uses PVC laminations because PVC is extremely functional, and it is regarded as one of the most intensely investigated polymers. In particular, plasticizers used to soften PVC have been the subjects of long-term studies. However, ORTLIEB also sees the ecological risks in manufacturing and disposal. Therefore, ORTLIEB’s PVC fabrics are exclusively manufactured in Europe, and the plasticizers are made in Germany. DINP and DIDP are the only plasticizers (phthalates) used by ORTLIEB.
ORTLIEB’s aim is to provide a collection entirely free of phthalates and this ‘Free’ collection is just the start of that journey in employing alternative plasticizers with reduced impact on people and environment while guaranteeing at least the same product quality and product life as now.
