8 Benefits of PVC-Free Polypropylene Binders

May 18, 2015

When it comes to binders, we are the source for responsible, sustainable options. Along with standard vinyl binders, we also offer PVC-free polypropylene binders. They are durable and eco-friendly, benefitting both you and the world around you. Let us help you discover the advantages of purchasing PVC-free clear overlay binders.      

  1. Polypropylene is earth-friendly.
    Polypropylene contains only two elements, carbon and hydrogen, and is a neutral plastic. As an added benefit, using polypropylene in place of PVC helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  2. Polypropylene is nontoxic.
    Using polypropylene makes you a good steward because it is safer for the environment.

     
  3. It’s 100% recyclable.
    Yet another sustainable benefit, polypropylene is a 100% recyclable material.
     
  4. The material is temperature resistant.
    Polypropylene shows greater resistance to cold crack and temperature fluctuations. Polypropylene also tolerates heat better, surviving temperatures up to 200°, and resists a variety of acids, alkalis, and solvent solutions.     
  5. Toner transfer resistant.
    Clearview binders made with polypropylene resist toner transfer when printed sheets from laser printers are inserted into covers, meaning you can reuse the binder for years without ruin. Your designs will weather the rain or any accidental spills because polypropylene is water-resistant as well.
  6. It’s more durable.
    PVC-free polypropylene binders are almost impossible to rip or tear. With a high tensile strength, polypropylene is impervious to breakage caused by stretching and pulling. Additionally, polypropylene binders can last as much as 10 times longer than vinyl binders.
  7. Polypropylene conforms to CPSIA and Prop 65 standards.
    Because it’s a toxin-free material, polypropylene meets the standards of The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act and Prop 65. Both initiatives address the need to eradicate toxic chemicals in the environment and the products people use.
  8. It’s efficiently made in the USA.
    Vulcan assembles its products in the USA, ensuring quality by keeping production in-house. Our company supports the country’s workforce by employing hard-working Americans.
