Our TPU films are tested safe and skin-friendly for sportswear & outdoor gear

Many Platilon® and Dureflex® thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) films carry the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certification, ensuring they are free of harmful substances. The films are ideal for manufacturers who need skin-friendly, safe and durable films for use in sports apparel and outerwear.
Our solutions also enable smart athletic clothing to integrate performance measurement through printed electronics and sensors applied to our films.

Independent certification system ensures consumer-safe textiles

OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certification means that every fabric, button, coating, lining and outer material in a textile product has been verified as harmless to human health.
 
This independent safety certification system sets limits on and verifies the amount of harmful substances and chemicals found in clothing, leather and textile products. The 18 independent OEKO-TEX® institutes in Europe and Japan apply consistent criteria and limits worldwide; ones that are often more stringent than national and international standards. 
Skin-friendly solutions for sportswear and demanding outdoor apparel.

From sports apparel to outerwear, skin-friendly TPU films unlock a variety of applications

Many of our Platilon® and Dureflex® films are certified to meet the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100, making them a smart choice for safe, skin-friendly products.
 
Rain gear, tents and sleeping bags often integrate Platilon® or Dureflex® films because they are tear-resistant and couple external waterproofing with internal comfort. Safety certification provides added peace of mind for suppliers, manufacturers and the final customer.  
 
Platilon® and Dureflex® solutions also enable smart athletic clothing to integrate performance measurement through printed electronics and sensors that can be applied to our films. 
 
The in-built reassurance of OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certification also makes Platilon® or Dureflex® films a popular choice for skin-friendly mattresses, sheets, pillows and outdoor furniture.
