We Innovate to Walk With Durability and Comfort
- Alve-One® - A hazardous-free and eco-friendly chemical foaming agent for footwear and sports equipment (e.g. yoga mats), Alve-One® is Solvay’s solution for the polymer foams industry to meet some of the strictest market and regulatory requirements. Using Alve-One® you will be reducing exposure to SVHC thus contributing to improving working conditions with a positive impact on the health of those producing foams. You will also be producing foams that (i) are healthier for the consumers (lower VOCs emissions and no odors), (ii) that have a positive impact on the environment (replacing 1 kg of ADCA by Alve-One® you’ll be saving 10 kg of CO2-eq) and (iii) that are easier to be recycled as Alve-one® is not generating any harmful decomposition residues. Alve-One® is an undeniable success case of SSbD, supporting the goals of the EU Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability. Alve-One® is a mineral-based product formulated with 100% safe, raw materials, and is free of SVHC substances.
