Environmentally Friendly Chemicals - Think Spring and Go Green


With spring upon us, we've been thinking green. As consumer concerns grow, companies are under increasing pressure to develop environmentally safer and friendlier products. Our customers come to us looking for solutions to be more conscious of the environment without sacrificing the integrity of their products. For instance, a mix of PCBTF (our Oxol-100) along with methyl acetate can create zero VOC paints.

Did you know that some of our suppliers offer non-hap, low VOC, waterborne, as well as other products that are environmentally friendly or considered green?
