EU Ecolabel classification identifies consumer/DIY paints and varnishes with an optimal combination of performance, life span and environmental friendliness. Architectural exterior wood products (e.g. lasures, varnishes) are often based on self-crosslinking polymers that can be formulated to low VOC, retaining good block and water resistance. The most common low temp curing cross-linker, adipic acid dihydrazide (ADH), has been reclassified as chronic hazardous for aquatic life, threatening the Ecolabel compliancy of many self-crosslinking polymers. Why? Because components that are hazardous for the environment are typically on the list of EU Ecolabel non-allowed substances. EPS® 745 and EPS® 747 are innovative ADH free acrylics that allow formulators environmental components without compromise in performance. Both products are ADH free, and can be formulated in high block and water resistant paints and varnishes with great exterior durability. Another powerful advantage when formulating with EPS® 745 and EPS® 747 is the capability to formulate to zero VOC while still retaining all the performance properties for a first class coating.
