Emerald has focused on providing solutions to help customers meet the new, more-stringent indoor air quality standards under ISO 16000-6 and has some products to meet the newest industry standard. You can see these new technologies at Stand 1-246.
The Emerald Kalama group has introduced several new K-FLEX® low-VOC coalescents, focused both on performance and meeting the new stringent VOC regulations, such as those under the indoor air quality standards. K-Flex 975P, K-Flex 850S and the newest product in the line, K-Flex 500P, achieved non-detectable levels of VOC emissions in an ISO-16000 chamber test. The company has announced that K-Flex 850S received a certificate from RAL GmbH indicating compliance with the requirements for the low-pollutant paints and varnishes under RAL UZ 12a. Emerald sees this is a potential area to expand the product offerings under the EU Ecolabel or Blue Angel certifications.
Emerald has also been focused on developing specialty modified epoxy materials that exhibit fast cure property development in coatings and adhesives applications.
Emerald has four business groups, eight operations, and 750 employees globally. For more information, visit www.emeraldmaterials.com.
