Ensuring safety of all products for both consumers and the environment is of a vital importance for Rains. Our pledge is based on strict European legal requirement and voluntary initiatives acted in accordance with in all our operating countries.
None of Rains’ products contain hormone disrupting, hazardous chemicals such as perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) or phthalates (PVC) that are listed as chemicals to avoid. PFC-coatings also called Durable Water Repellent (DWR) are made to bead up and disperse moisture from rainwear but are considered highly harmful for the environment. As an alternative, Rains’ water repellency comes from an innovative and specially developed PU-fabric that is water repellent in itself and therefore does not need to be coated with chemistry.
All components of Rains’ products stand confidently under the standards of REACH; the European legislation regulating registrations, evaluations, authorizations and restrictions of chemicals. Together with international testing centers, we are demonstrating our compliance, based on a rigorous environmental audit protocol that includes chemicals management.
When we test, we are testing for mg/kg levels of:
Phthalates Content, Dimethylformamide (DMFa), pH Value, Carcinogenic Dyes, Allergenic Disperse Dyes, Organotin Compounds, Pesticides, Phenol, PFOS (2006/122/EC), PFFOS & PFOA, PVD Identification, Beilstein (FTR), Material Identification, Azo Dyes, Formaldehyde, Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs), Flame Retardants, Chlorinated Organic Carriers (COC), Alkylphenols, Alkylphenol ethoxylates, Heavy metals extractable, Nickel release, Lead and Cadmium, Perfluorinated and polyfluorinated compounds (PFC’s), Perfluorinated tensides (PFOS / PFOA), Tinorganic compounds.
