As the only sun control fabrics in the market to use DOW’s unique ECOLIBRIUM bio-based plasticizer, Styles 4000/4100 and 4400 combine the durability of vinyl coated polyester with the latest in green PVC technology. 
ECOLIBRIUM is a renewable alternative to traditional plasticizers that lowers greenhouse gas emissions as much as 40% vs existing PVC compounds.
