In line with COATRESA’s continuous enhancement, contribution to environmental protection and occupational health of its workers, part of our R&D projects is focused on replacing solvent-based products.
We are aware of the critical current situation caused by high CO2 emissions to the atmosphere coming from fossil fuel consumption, and we wish to contribute to have a healthier environment. One of our main targets as a company is to use products 100% H2O-based, NMP (n-methylpyrrolidone) free and to work with CMR (carcinogenic, mutagenic, or toxic for reproduction) free products.
Environmental and labour benefits
Besides obvious benefits for environment, this change will also bring benefits to our workers, as they will work in a healthier environment with less VOCs (volatile organic compounds), which will consequently reduce potential occupational hazards.
We expect to completely implement products that are environmentally friendly and that contribute to a better work environment by the end of 2019, as this whole process implies R&D Department approving all coating systems offered by COATRESA to all types of industrial sector.
