Bringing healthy colors

TO OUR LITTLE ONES

Protecting our children is what we do as parents. We don’t want to expose them to unsuitable surroundings. That goes for a kindergarten as well as at home. Children should be as carefree exploring indoors on a rainy day as they are out in the sunshine. So we need to ensure that their indoor world is safe and healthy.

Every surface

NEEDS ITS COATING

Paintings

on the wall

Of course, the little ones should play outside whenever possible. But what about rainy days? They stay indoors, of course. And then they breathe the air of their daycare for 6, 8, maybe even 10 hours. So their parents count on a healthy indoor environment with wall paint that does not emit anything. Whether it's yellow, green, blue or painted with birds and flowers.

Challenges of

Wood Lacquers

Imagine a toddler running across a wooden floor. Maybe just after building a sandcastle or exploring a puddle in their new boots. Then drumming a fun beat with building blocks on the floor. That's right. The wood needs protection. And since eco-friendly treatments like wax or oil only protect up to a certain extent, you need lacquers. But what about pollutants? Correct: the lacquers should be completely harmless and have to be non-polluting.

Coating

for pvc

In a kitchen, children are constantly exploring and at the same time want to help with "mixed" results. They are more than willing to clean up the mess. Or eat it. But a lot of dirt, constant touching and cleaning can wear a daycare kitchen out. Like a good plate, kitchens should be so durable, safe and spotless that you can eat off any surface. Lacquers used on such PVC furniture should live up to those safety needs.

Interior

metal lacquers

Humidity, heat and the general aging process are not the only challenges that metal has to cope with, especially if it is a radiator in a playroom. Sure, heat is essential for a warm and cosy play environment. But kids find many other uses for radiators, like using them as a mountain for their toys or exploring what magnets can do. So a metal lacquer needs to be robust and yet harmless when in contact with their skin.

Did you

know?

Air quality concerns are rising worldwide. High on the list of culprits: VOC. To keep their people healthy, more and more countries are taking action. China, for instance, already taxes manufacturers 5% for VOCs over 400g/l. And soon they will adopt a shift from solvent-borne water-borne paints. A shift that all 1.3 billion people benefit from, but especially children. Being more vulnerable, now they get the chance to grow up in a healthier environment.

THE CHALLENGES OF ECO-FRIENDLIER PAINTS

You have over 25 years of experience testing and evaluating paints & coatings. How have market requirements evolved?
Consumers are concerned more about sustainable living but also in how they select paint. In particular, interior wall paint. Those who are asthmatic or suffer from an allergy even demand a full list of ingredients. At the same time the demand for easier-to-use, convenient paints is rising and the industry is reacting. The challenge is to find solutions that combine performance and sustainability.

»Because of changing regulations and safety data sheets for existing additives, paint manufacturers have to constantly rethink paint compositions.«


What role do additives have in environmentally-friendly paints?
Consumer paint is composed of several ingredients. It is necessary to check every single one regarding its ecological impact and possible influence on personal health. This is true even for additives used in very small amounts, like neutralizing and wetting agents. Ideally, such an additive should not have any hazardous labeling or any volatile substances, while at the same time enhancing paint performance.

Do today's most commonly used neutralizers on the market also meet the consumer standards of tomorrow?
From my point of view, each existing solution has some drawbacks. Caustic potash and caustic soda are corrosive and require a hazard warning. Aminomethyl propanol (AMP) and dimethly aminoethanol (DMEA) are regarded as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) because of their low boiling point. There are a few solvent-free amines on the market, but they do not perform like the most widely used product, AMP. And, of course, they are not based on renewable resources. Because of changing regulations and safety data sheets for existing additives, paint manufacturers have to always be rethinking paint compositions.

What is a VOC and why is it a problem?
A volatile organic compound is a chemical which is volatile, like water or a fragrance. Some additives, for example defoamers or their constituents, are volatile. Very often VOCs are harmful or have at least questionable effects on personal health or the environment. The absence of solvents and VOCs is crucial for an ecolabel. Lastly, semi-volatile compounds (SVOCs), which evaporate over a significantly longer period of time, are in discussion. They could be even more dangerous than VOCs because of their long lasting presence in the ambient indoor air. A lot of paint manufacturers already have a solution for low-emission wall paints. But sometimes waterborne interior varnishes are not yet in compliance with the ecolabel regulations, such as the testing method ISO 16000-9 defined by the German AgBB1, a taskforce of the German public health authorities on the VOC emissions from construction products.

What does it take

TO GET AN ECOLABEL?

Two neutralizing agents

ONE WINNER IN ALL CATEGORIES

Neutralizing agents have to fulfill a lot of requirements with regard to performance, safety and eco-compatibility, while at the same time being in line with today's market trends and end-consumer needs. We compared Genamin® Gluco 50 with AMP in 12 crucial categories.

1 VOC-free means the VOC content of Genamin® Gluco 50 is below the measurable threshold of 0.1% according to ISO 11890-2. According to ISO 16000-9, Genamin® Gluco 50 is also SVOC-free. 2 Community Rolling Action Plan (List of possibly hazardous substances issued by the European Chemicals Agency) 3 No human hazard label 4 No environmental hazard label

The years go by

THE QUALITY STAYS

Paint quality should last even after 2 years of being on the shelf. To ensure this, not only do sedimentation and syneresis need to be inhibited, but pH-value and viscosity must also be stabilized. How does Genamin® Gluco 50 measure up?

    OF THE PAINT

    Dispersion paints as well as pigment dispersions that are neutralized with Genamin® Gluco 50 show higher tinting strength in comparison to other neutralizing agents. Exchanging components in a tinted paint formulation can cause shade shifts.


    Compatibility with pigments—tinting strength

    Compatibility with pigments—shift of shades

    If ammonia is considered as a standard neutralizing agent and exchanged with Genamin® Gluco 50, the shift of shades is comparable to AMP. It can therefore easily be replaced by Genamin® Gluco 50.

  • No flash rust

    NO DISCOLORATION

    Genamin® Gluco 50 in water-based lacquers is able to reduce flash rust on ferrous metals. The product also helps protect the coating film against discoloration which is often caused by rust. For gloss lacquers this is visually tested according to ASTM D610.
