Eldon James materials and processes have been purposefully chosen to minimize the pollution caused during their life-cycle.

We don’t manufacture any PVC or Polyvinyl Chloride, a material whose production can negatively affect water and air quality. During PVC’s useful life it will leach DEHP or Di (2-Ethylhexyl) Phthalates which are not chemically bound to PVC and have the ability to leach, migrate or evaporate. Phthalates are additives widely used in the production of PVC to make it soft and flexible.

The use of phthalates as an additive has raised concerns in recent years due to the fact thatphthalates have been associated with an increased risk of cancer and other health issues.Phthalates (and sometimes BPA and lead), and most damaging of all, high levels of hazardous gases, dioxins and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are generated when PVC is incinerated in the disposal process.These compounds could be released into the air, water and soil contributing to health concerns. In addition, the hydrogen chloride released could also cause damage to the incinerators, shortening the life cycle.

Eldon James Corporation has worked hard to develop a full line of replacement resins that are eco-friendly, cost effective, and high quality.
