This unique green technology is exclusive to Phifer for the window treatment industry.

DOW ECOLIBRIUM™ Plasticizers are made from 98% renewable feedstock and offer a phthalate-free alternative to shades constructed with traditional petroleum-based plasticizers. Redefining vinyl sustainability, these new compounds meet tough regulatory requirements, providing a reduced carbon footprint and compound that can be recycled in a standard vinyl stream. DOW plasticizers reduce greenhouse gases by 40 percent versus traditional plasticizers.
