Cons of PVC:In conclusion, PVC coated fabrics are versatile, durable and cheap and are therefore widely used in a range of applications. However, PVC coated fabrics also pose serious health and environmental issues. For this reason we have committed ourselves to develop new and more sustainable fabrics.

One of these developments is Rivercyclon®, a revolutionary range of non-toxic, lightweight, heat-sealable and 100% recyclable coated fabrics. Rivercyclon® can replace PVC coated fabrics at similar cost.
If PVC coated fabrics would be replaced by more sustainable alternatives like Rivercyclon® our reliance on non-renewable resources and pollution will be hugely reduced.
