Product related safety policy
The safety of our employees, those who process our products and their end users are of the highest possible priority to our company. We are constantly strengthening our employees’ awareness of safety and environmental protection. We’re heightening perception of possible safety risks and environmental impact.
This begins with the choice of raw materials for product development, through the product manufacturing process, to the customers’ application method for our products. Our selection of raw materials takes into consideration national and international legislation (GMP, REACH, CLP, the federal emission protection law, safety at work).
In addition, customers’ special requirements are met, which sometimes lead negative lists for chemicals. For products that come into contact with food in their later use by the end customer, we use only raw materials approved according to food legislation and guidelines. Furthermore, the potential risk to mankind and the environment is lessened by the reduction of VOCs (volatile organic substances). End product requirements are taken into account at the outset during product development and are regularly checked in the product life cycle of our coating materials.
This is partly systematic and partly project related. The results are incorporated into continuous product improvement and in fundamental new product developments.
