Plastex Matting News
All of our PVC matting products are made from plasticised polyvinyl chloride formulation.
There has been some controversy about the use of PVC, but all detailed scientific studies have concluded that it has an environmental impact similar to, or better than, other plastics.
The raw materials for PVC are salt (57%) and oil or gas (43%). Because of its relatively low oil or gas content, the production of PVC involves using less of our limited oil reserves than is necessary for most other plastics.
