What’s ILAG’s MAXIMIZING Green strategy?
We fulfill our obligation to people and the environment by providing new coatings based on sustainable raw materials. Our goal is to use alternative base materials as soon as this is technically and regulatorily possible.

What else is good to know about this product?
For this product group we only use base materials that reduce the ecological footprint – either in the coating that we produce or in the complete value chain.
We guarantee the same performance in comparison to our standard products.

What’s the difference to a standard product?
Next to the usual recipe that is formulated without APEO and PFOA (according to EU regulation 2017/1000), NMP* is eliminated from the recipe of the wet coating and GenX** is not used for the production of a base material that we use for this product group.

* NMP (N-Methyl-2-pyrrolidone, CAS 872-50-4) is a solvent.
** GenX is a DuPont (today: Chemours) trademark name for a chemical process and a chemical. (Source: Wikipedia)

What’s ILAG using as an alternative base material?
ILAG uses base materials that are not rated critical by legal authorities like ECHA (e.g. SVHC-list***) in Europe or EPA in the United States of America.

*** The Candidate List is a list of substances that may have serious effects on human health or the environment. (Source: ECHA website)
