The only PVC-free solution for metal vacuum closures

Our brand PROVALIN® covers the PVC-free sealing compounds used for metal vacuum closures, for glass jars containing food. PROVALIN® is the only existing PVC-free alternative to the conventional PVC-materials.

Neither PVC nor plasticizers are used in the production of PROVALIN® compounds. This prevents the migration of harmful substances - such as plasticizers - into food.

PROVALIN® compounds have successfully undergone long-term testing and are commercially proven in the market. In combination with ACTEbond BPA- NI interior coatings, ACTEGA offers a complete package solution.
