Leading the way towards a more sustainable future
The costs of the production, storage and transport of products containing restricted substances are increasing due to safety regulations. As a consequence, we will add an environmental surcharge to Stahl performance coating products that still contain restricted substances, such as DMF, NMP and NEP, toluene, benzene, xylene and phthalates. This environmental surcharge will become effective on 1. January 2016.
“As the additional costs of products containing restricted substances continue to rise, the gap towards the next generation clean performance products becomes smaller”, says Uwe Siebgens, Group Director Performance Coatings of Stahl. “As frontrunner in sustainability, we do hope that the environmental surcharge will accelerate the use of more sustainable and solvent-free products on a worldwide scale.”
