Rubber-Cal is fully committed to providing safe and environmentally friendly products to our customers. Due to the industrial nature of our product line available on Ducting.com, not everything is able to qualify as environmentally friendly. Our ducting products are made from a diverse range of materials such as PVC, Thermoplastic Rubber, Polyester Fabric, and Polyurethane just to name a few. As a result, Rubber-Cal has chosen to provide a warning based on the possibility that one or more of the chemicals listed by Prop 65 may be present in the materials used in the composition of our ducting products.
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, better known as Proposition 65, lists over 750 chemicals that are known to cause cancer and/or birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Proposition 65 requires manufactures to provide a “clear and reasonable” warning before knowingly and intentionally exposing anyone to a listed chemical. A “clear and reasonable” warning indicates:
- That the manufacturer has evaluated the exposure and has concluded that the product contains a listed chemical that exceeds the "no significant risk level" (as defined in Proposition 65); or
- The manufacturer has chosen to provide a warning simply based on the knowledge about the presence of a listed chemical without attempting to evaluate the exposure.
Proposition 65, the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 was a California ballot initiative (voted on by the public) and requires the governor to publish an annual list of chemicals known to cause cancer or reproductive harm. The latest list includes hundreds of chemicals from A-alpha-C to zileuton. Please see the below link to the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment which puts Prop 65 in “Plain Language." http://oehha.ca.gov/prop65/background/p65plain.html
