Leverkusen, Germany – Some Covestro TPU films used in clothing have gained the 100 Certificate by Oeko-Tex.
Combined with other materials, the films make clothing breathable, waterproof, tearproof, said the company.
The films have product class 1 rating, which means they are skin-friendly. So much so they can be used next to the skin of children aged up to 3 years old, Covestro said.
The company added that the 100 Standard is globally standardised by Oeko-Tex. This is an independent body made up of a test houses. 'Test criteria and limit values often go well beyond national and international requirements. That is why the certification guarantees high and effective product safety,' said the firm.
