Phthalate-Free Technology Makes Omnisports Unique Among Sports Floors

Tarkett Sports' Omnisports is now one of the only resilient sports surfaces available in North America to use phthalate-free technology.

Calhoun, GA, June 16, 2015 --( Omnisports, a popular multi-use sports surface manufactured by Tarkett Sports, is now one of the only phthalate-free resilient sports floors available in North America. Beginning in 2014, Tarkett began utilizing phthalate-free plasticizers in production across Europe and North America. As part of Tarkett’s initiative for sustainability and eco-innovation, this new phthalate-free manufacturing process improves the indoor environment and air quality. The phthalate-free plasticizers used in Omnisports are identical to those approved for food containers and children’s toys intended to be placed in the mouth.

In addition to utilizing phthalate-free manufacturing technology, Omnisports is also the first sports surface to be certified asthma & allergy friendly™ by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. As a key component of environmental control (the active management of indoor environments to minimize asthma and allergy symptoms), Omnisports can provide a healthier sports flooring solution for asthma and allergy sufferers. It achieves this through exceptionally low VOC emissions and low allergen retention.
