Flooring Adventures (Chester, VA), makers of Tuff-Seal™ Interlocking Floor Tile, says it has the first flooring product to enhance its sustainability using BioVinyl™, made with DOW ECOLIBRIUM™ bio-based plasticizer. Made from virtually 100 percent renewable ingredients, DOW ECOLIBRIUM™ bio-based plasticizers are derived from the non-food portion of crops. When used in flexible vinyl compounds, DOW ECOLIBRIUM™ can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 40 percent if used instead of traditional phthalate ester-based PVC plasticizers. Tuff-Seal with DOW ECOLIBRIUM™ is now 70 percent derived from natural resources (salt, minerals, and plants) and formulated without the use of phthalates or lead.
