BERLIN, GERMANY: PolyOne Corporation introduced reFlex 300 bioplasticizer at the European Bioplastics Conference on 6 November 2012. Derived from rapidly renewable feedstocks and certified to contain 99 per cent bio-based content, this non-phthalate alternative provides a one-for-one replacement for general-purpose plasticizers used in flexible vinyl formulations. This new material was developed to help customers meet their sustainability goals with a non-phthalate, bio-derived solution.

PolyOne reFlex 300 bioplasticizer can help customers reduce their carbon footprint and eliminate phthalates without compromising in-service performance. Further, this new technology assists manufacturers and brand owners in satisfying the requirements of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), which bans certain phthalates in products used by children.

“We continue to see increased marketplace demand for renewable technology for plasticizers. Our reFlex 300 bioplasticizer enables customers to expand their offerings with differentiated alternatives that heed consumer calls for eco-conscious solutions,” said Rob Rosenau, President, Performance Products and Solutions, PolyOne.
