Clariant delivered novel performance boost for ecolabel certified architectural paints at ACS 2018
Clariant, a world leader in speciality chemicals, supports North America’s architectural paints market in creating a healthier indoors for USA households with innovative formulation ingredients now launched to the region.
New renewable-based and hazard label-free multifunctional neutraliser Genamin Gluco 50 and new advanced stabiliser system Dispersogen SPS/SPV for “breathable” biocide-free paints offer a step-change to environmentally friendly coatings.
“With architectural paints and especially environmentally friendly solutions expected to grow at an above average rate in the U.S. through 2019, Clariant is excited to introduce new additive solutions that contribute towards a healthier future for the region’s thriving indoor paints segment,” comments Ruzmir Niksic, Clariant’s Head of Regional Business Line North America for Business Unit Industrial & Consumer Specialties.
New Genamin Gluco 50 stands out in the market for offering formulators the unique chance to reduce formulation complexity with a single additive and keep within the low VOC/SVOC limits of the most stringent regulations and eco-labels.
It is suitable for paints certified with an ecolabel such as the USA GreenSeal, the German Blue Angel, or the Chinese TenRing.
It is also an ideal ingredient for paints that align with very low VOC limits such as those required in Southern California, where only 50 g/L VOC is allowed in flat indoor paints.
