What that means is:
- A material free of heavy metals (excluding white profiles)
- A high renewable carbon content
- A low carbon footprint that has up to 50% reduction in CO2 emissions and improved environmental impact versus phthalate plasticized vinyl
This also results in improved physical properties versus phthalate-based compounds
- Low temperature properties
- Improved thermal stability
- Dynamic color hold
- Outdoor weatherability
