PVC is one of the most technically and scientifically researched products, certified to meet special requirements aimed at ensuring its compatibility with environment and human health. Suffice it to say that the technological advancements in the PVC industry have become the reference point for international institutions. Unlike other plastic polymers, PVC consists of 57% salt and only 43% oil (38% carbon and 5% hydrogen). The electrolysis of sodium chloride (the common table salt) results in the manufacture of caustic soda and chlorine, the most abundant halogen compound in nature. As only 38% of its molecular weight is carbon, PVC is intrinsically a low carbon plastic, which means significantly reduced CO2 emissions than other plastic polymers. The use of all the additives necessary to achieve the significant properties are standardized by the Reach Regulation and most of them are of biological origin. Sidef does not make use of any toxic raw materials in the production of its compounds. The packaging consists of 60% recycled paper and the industrial process water is recovered, filtered and reused continuously to avoid waste.
