Sicomin awarded environmental certification

Sicomin has been awarded the Bureau Veritas Footprint Progress Certification for the company’s GreenPoxy products range.

Footprint Progress is a result driven certification for companies that inform contractors and customers about their products' environmental impact throughout the product lifecycle. The certification proves that Sicomin’s bio-based epoxy systems are eco-designed and have limited environmental impact compared to standard epoxy formulation, the company says.

The certification applies to GreenPoxy 56, a clear and waterproof epoxy system which contains over 52% plant and vegetable content, for tough and hard-wearing gloss laminates, GreenPox 33, a clear laminate with high mechanical properties with over 35% plant content, and GreenPoxy 28, a clear laminate with mechanical properties which has 28% of its molecular structure deriving from plant origin.

‘The Bureau Veritas certification shows that Sicomin’s eco-design strategy is successful and that bio-based epoxy chemistry can be on today’s industrialists’ agenda,’ said Philippe Marcovich, president, Sicomin.
