First Plasticizer Included in CleanGredients Database

Eastman 168 SG is the first plasticizer to be listed in GreenBlue’s CleanGredients that meets the criteria of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Safer Choice program . All current ingredient listings have been specific to cleaning products, but Eastman 168 SG presents a new category of CleanGredients not specific to cleaning applications, thus broadening the reach of the Safer Choice program into new industries and applications.

“We find it encouraging that a company like Eastman is proactively assessing its products against EPA’s objective and widely recognized criteria for green chemistry” says James Ewell, senior director of sustainable materials at GreenBlue. “We are getting inquiries from other companies who have developed safer alternatives but are lacking a consistent method of evaluation as well as trusted outlets to market their products. CleanGredients can be a resource for these manufacturers.”

Eastman 168 SG is a non-phthalate plasticizer, and is globally recognized and accepted by competent authorities, regulatory agencies, and private organizations as an excellent alternative to phthalates in applications such as flooring, wallcoverings, toys, medical devices, and many other applications that require flexible vinyl. Eastman 168 SG can also be used in some waterborne adhesives and in some rubber formulations, and has several US FDA and European food-contact clearances in adhesive and plastics applications.
