DOI: dx.doi.org/10.14314/polimery.1999.356


A review covering the stabilizers and plasticizers used in PVC compositions in relation to their environmental impact. Phthalates are discussed most extensively. Heavy metal (e.g., Pb) containing stabilizers and plasticizers are permissible, provided WHO recommendations are strictly observed. Prior art knowledge was used to describe interactions between the auxiliaries and the environment and living organisms.

Keywords: metal-containing PVC stabilizers, safety of application, phthalate plasticizers, phthalate impact
