Cryolite & the Environment



 

PVC & Halogen Free - Our Cryolite boot range contains no Halogens (Halogens include Chlorine, Fluorine, Bromine and Iodine), commonly used in the production of PVC boots. When halogens reach their flammable temperature, they release dangerous plumes of toxic gases, such as hydrogen chloride. 

Phthalate Free - Cryolite boots are also phthalate free (these are mainly used as plasticizers, primarily to soften PVC) - Research suggests that Phthalates may be endocrine disruptors that can interfere with hormone systems and may cause cancerous tumours, birth defects, and other developmental disorders.

Biodegradable - Cryolite boots will degrade in UV light or by natural oxidation or ozonolysis over a number of years (steel toe caps and mid-soles, if fitted, will not degrade, but pose no risk to the environment).
