PVC halogen free products
What are halogens and why should you care? Elements like fluorine, chlorine, bromine, iodine and astate are found in many chemical compounds like in PVC (polyvinylchoride).
As we know, PVC is used in many technical products to make them more durable and for insulation while other halogens are added to improve flame protection.
However, halogens are harmful to human health particularly in a situation where halogenated plastics and particularly PVC, burn. In a case of fire these halogens react with water or fluids and create a dangerous hydrochloric acid, other mixtures of dioxins and toxic chemicals. These can seriously damage health or even cause some mortalities. This is why all UNIPRO connectors, adapters and 3-phase DALI tracks are manufactured completely using PVC- and Halogen free plastics.
Plastic free packages
Humans are sinking the world with plastic. This is an enormous challenge for our environment. We need to act!
We at UNIPRO decided to remove as much plastic as possible from our packages and today, UNIPRO has reduced the use of plastic already by 1 000 kg annually. This was achieved by re-designing the adapter-, connector- and track packages. Now all our adapters and connectors are packaged in certified and recycled cardboard. The new packages are sealed, easy to store and transport. They also give the best possible protection for the products.
