1. Discover the countless combinations offered by vinyl-based materials. Vinyl enables the architects’ free rein in their creativity, offering them almost infinite design options to meet aesthetics, functionality, safety, affordability and sustainability needs in healthcare environments.

    Every day, new hospitals and healthcare centres are being built. These significant investments often aim to create architectural projects that participate in ensuring efficient, flexible and qualitative patient treatment, in addition to optimising working conditions for staff. The architectural challenge of these new hospitals is for aesthetics and functionality to form a perfect match while being cost-efficient.

  5. Today, phthalates are widely used as plasticisers in medical devices manufactured in the plastic material PVC.
    Actually, 40 % of all plastic based medical devices are manufactured in soft PVC (blood bags, catheters, oxygen masks, tubing, ostomy bags etc.). The use of classified phthalates in PVC applications has attracted attention because of its known reproductive and endocrine disrupting effects. The key concern is migration from DEHP in the medical device into the patient. Therefore, substitution of DEHP used in medical devices has been subject to a lot of attention both nationally and internationally, and therefore in Denmark, business trade organisations together with national authorities are focusing on identifying relevant alternative plasticisers to be used as replacements for DEHP.
