What is the difference between EVA and PEVA?
PEVA is a nontoxic vinyl (it doesn’t have the chlorine molecule that makes PVC toxic). I used a PEVA shower curtain in a rented apartment for three months. It worked great and doesn’t smell at all. EVA is Ethylene vinyl acetate, a copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate.
Is PEVA biodegradable?
PEVA is neither biodegradable, nor is it “made without chlorine and other toxins”. PEVA is made by adding carcinogen monomer vinylacetate to ordinary polyethylen (wich is in turn absolutely un-biodegradable!)
Is polyethylene harmful to humans?
