Coating Solutions That Make a Difference

As consumers become more conscious about how their products impact the environment and their health, the priorities of coatings formulators continue to shift. Not only must manufacturers produce high-quality materials, but they must also consider the environmental footprint of what they create. Manufacturers are prioritizing sustainable alternatives to conventional practices and products to meet eco-conscious demands. 

At Solvay, we enable manufacturers to convert solvent-borne systems to waterborne formulations that meet demanding industry regulations. Aligned with Solvay One Planet, and our focus on increasing the sustainable solutions within our portfolio, we offer a growing line of APE-free (alkylphenol ethoxylates), VOC-free (Volatile Organic Compounds) and eco-label products that meet the most challenging sustainability and performance requirements facing the industry today.
