Synthos launches a new dispersion for the production of eco-friendly construction chemicals
The new product is Synthos Synexil® SAB 05, a dispersion for the production of eco-friendly construction chemicals, such as paints for children’s rooms and for people with allergies. This is the company’s response to a real need and market trend to offer environmentally friendly products to end users.
The launch of the new SAB 05 eco-friendly dispersion under the Synexil® brand is an important part of the implementation of Synthos’ Evergreen Sustainable Development Strategy. The strategy involves manufacturing products that are 100% sustainable and developed with a sense of responsibility for our environment. The new product in the company’s portfolio fulfils this objective.
The new dispersion stands out due to its excellent UV resistance and a low film formation temperature, thanks to which it can be used to produce solvent-free construction chemicals. The dispersion is also characterised by very good scrub resistance, which allows paints based on Synexil SAB 05 to fulfil their practical function in everyday use.
Synexil SAB 05 meets the strictest standards for low emissions. White interior paint based on this dispersion meets the highest standards for the prevention of indoor air pollution. This has been confirmed by tests conducted by an independent institute.
‘From the point of view of customers who are looking for products that are safe for their own health and that of their loved ones, all these characteristics are very important. For this reason, our new eco-friendly dispersion does not contain emulsifiers such as APEO, solvents, ammonia, and formaldehyde donors. Thanks to all these distinguishing features, Synexil® SAB 05 is perfect as a base for paints that can be used in children’s rooms and by allergy sufferers,’ explains Damian Nowak, Product Manager.
Synthos strives to offer products that are safe for users and to ensure that production processes are as environmentally neutral as possible.
‘We are aware that as one of the leading manufacturers of chemical products, we have a great responsibility. This means that any change that starts at the very beginning of the chain ultimately affects millions of users around the world.
By introducing more innovative solutions and sustainable products, we can meet the growing expectations of customers while taking care of the world and its people. We believe that by investing in sustainable production and eco-friendly solutions, such as the use of green raw materials, we can stop negative changes in the world around us,’ says Barbara Chodacka, Director of the DAL (Dispersions, Adhesives, Latexes) Business Unit.
Our new construction project in Oświęcim will help us achieve this goal. We have just started building a production plant for eco-friendly dispersions and adhesives, which will improve the process of bringing more plant-based products to market for the manufacture of paints, varnishes, furniture and windows. For Synthos, this is the next step towards achieving sustainable development goals in line with our Evergreen strategy. The end of construction is scheduled for 2023.
