NuVera®: Responsible polymer solutions for the future of coatings
From architectural coatings to high fashion and automotive components, the drive toward more responsible, circular ways of working is transforming industries.
At Stahl, we see the transition to renewable feedstocks as an essential step toward de-fossilizing the coatings value chain. It’s why we’ve developed the NuVera® range: a diverse selection of low-environmental-impact polyurethane and acrylic innovations.
NuVera® products harness the power of renewable feedstocks – including biomass, captured greenhouse gases, and waste plastic. Thanks to intensive research and development, our application experts have achieved high levels of bio-based and recycled-based content, with no loss of performance.
Expertly tested for optimal performance
What’s more, each innovation in the NuVera® range has undergone rigorous industry-standard testing that replicates the conditions that polymers (in coating products) are subjected to in real-world applications.
We measure the bio-based content of our products using the carbon isotope analysis method. Recycled content is measured via the mass balance method.
Adding value to countless applications
NuVera® polymer technologies support a wide range of applications and end markets, including the following:
Coil and industrial metal
Printing and packaging
Automotive and electronic plastics
Fashion, footwear, and upholstery
Whatever use they’re put to, what links all NuVera® products is their ability to unlock high-performance results, with an impressively low environmental impact. From corrosion-resistant bridges to high-quality printing on frozen food bags, NuVera® technologies are helping to create a more responsible chemical industry, one polymer at a time.
