Bio-based Raw Materials Form the Main Focus in Developing Bio-based Coatings
- Jun 1, 2012
Coating companies are constantly looking for novel ways to develop sustainable coatings that have a minimum impact on the environment. Some of the approaches industry has been using over the years to develop sustainable coatings include: Reduce energy consumption; Reduce waste material;
Reduce water consumption; Reduce VOCs.
Recent advances in using bio-based materials to replace petroleum-based materials now offer a newer option for coating manufacturers to develop sustainable coatings. In April, we asked our members to share their interest in replacing petroleum based materials with bio-based materials. The question we asked was: What is your main focus in developing bio-based coatings?
