Covestro's Platilon thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) films have been certified with Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex, which indicates their high level of product safety. They are breathable, waterproof, tear-resistant and skin-friendly which makes them the material of choice for sports articles and outdoor clothing, and also for furniture and seat covers for cars.

The films were awarded certification for Product Class I. This applies to articles with direct skin contact for infants and young children up to three years of age. This means that they are associated with the highest demands placed on the skin-compatibility of the products. Therefore, these films are ideal for many smart and pollution-free textile applications.

Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX is a globally uniform, independent testing and certification system for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products at all stages of processing. The test criteria and limit values often go far beyond national and international specifications. The certification guarantees high and effective product safety. (SV)
