Plasticizers controversy renewed!Not long ago, Jiangsu Province, quality supervision department store and from the electronic business platform altogether sampling of 120 batches of samples plastic bag book cover, slipcase package which 67 batches, 53 batches of the film package of books. Risk monitoring results show that 49 batches does not comply with the relevant requirements, accounting for 40.8% of the total sample does not meet the project as solvent residues, phthalates and PAHs.March 3, the CPPCC National Committee, Dean of Sun Yat-sen Institute of Food and Health Engineering Liu Xin said that he would submit "recommendations on possible human reproductive capacity to reduce environmental hormone pollutants should cause great concern" during the two sessions this year proposal.
He suggested, should first do a good job of environmental protection plasticizers industrial planning and introduction of the project to promote environmental protection plasticizer chain growth and development. Actively develop non-toxic, environmentally friendly, biodegradable and good plasticized performance plastic additives, contain and reduce phthalates plasticizers like environmental hormone pollution from the source, for the benefit of the people.Speaking of plasticizers, everyone's feeling is "Laoshuguojie people cry, but why it has been used? What in the end plastic products used? I am here to explain in detail.What plasticizing agent is?Plasticizing agent (plasticizer) is a polymer material aid, but also environmental estrogens in phthalate esters (PAEs phthalates), its wide range of the most common varieties are DEHP (trade name DOP). DEHP phthalate chemical name bis (2-ethylhexyl) ester, a colorless, odorless liquid, the material is a polymer additive widely used industrially important plastics additives industry PVC products, are widely used in people's lives, such as infusion, respiratory equipment, children's toys, cosmetics, flooring, plastic wrap, bags, garbage bags. Contact material such as industrial rubber tubes, rubber seals, gaskets, plastic containers, as well as bottled drinks and food products such as caps seals may also be present during the production of food and drug industry phthalate ester plasticizer. Add in PVC processing this material, so that it can enhance flexibility, easy processing, can be legally used for industrial purposes. Not all plastics containing plasticizers are!Not all plastics containing plasticizers are, common in everyday life of polyethylene recycling, polypropylene, polystyrene recycling, polycarbonate, polyester, nylon, polyurethane, ABS plastic, etc., in the production process does not need to add plasticizers, they are "plasticizers" is not detached.Not all plasticizers are poisonous!And on the plasticizer itself, the more variety, there are also different kinds of toxicity moderately toxic, low toxicity, micro-toxic, non-toxic distinction, any contact with food containers, tableware and packaging, PVC film production if then this PVC must meet national standards for health indicators, other additives, including plasticizers also conform to the national standard health indicators, they are safe to use, not the use of the plasticizer are poisonous.Not all bosses are using plasticizers!The plastic products, using the occasion to choose a safe plasticizer is a basic principle of safety in production of plastic products, should also be entrepreneurs conscience resides, using regular manufacturers of formal products are safe. We are a big waste plastics boss conscience!
