Being Biobased and Biodegradeable are the game changers for mastering the challenges of Sustainability today and tomorrow.
Every Industry has a specific need, The Water Paint , Coating & Construction chemicals industry needs more sustainable materials.
That’s why we have launched several functional products to replace Cellulose Ethers, Acrylates , Polyurethane & Ethoxylated surfactants.
Our biobased and Biodegradeable replacement chemistries are ethoxylate free, Propoxylated free ,Quat Free have now been perfectly curated to serve as Biobasedrheology modifiers, Binding agents, Levelling agents , Biobased De-foamers & Anti-Foam agents and more…
No more greenwashing. Our technology is quantified and certified - easy to use and easy to integrate. Low COD/BOD, high biodegradability, and better performance compared to obsolete fossil carbon-based chemicals. Join us in building a strong and sustainable ecosystem.
Biobased Carbon Prediction
As a first step, we are committed to making our entire portfolio of chemicals biobased & biodegradable. By using our proprietary in-house state-of-the-art predictive algorithm, By using this step by step We predictive algorithm, We predict the Percentage (%) Biobased Carbon in our products & formulations.
Biobased Carbon Proof
The only way to quantify & prove the Biobased carbon % in any product is via Radio Carbon analysis using method ASTMD6866B. Our predictive models are put to the test and our products & formulations are analysed at Beta Analytics lab in USA. The products are then list not the USDA bio-preferred website catalog and carry the prestigious USDA Bio-preferred Product label.
Environmental Safety Tests
We are against green washing and any biobased claim must be backed by data. A Biobased product does NOT necessarily mean it will biodegrade . We understand this, The products and formulations with proven & acceptable biobased carbon are then subjected to suitable tests for Biodegradation as per OECD guidelines.
Biological & Chemical Oxygen Demand :
Leave nothing to chance, Prior to proceeding to performance testings, We conduct intense tests as per global standards to quantify and establish safety of our products mainly its after effects when
the effluent maybe let out back into the environment.
COD: A high chemical oxygen demand means a higher requirement of dissolved oxygen (DO). A Reduction is DO can lead to anaerobic state ( absence of free oxygen ) which is deleterious to higher aquatic life forms.
BOD: A high biological oxygen demand means a higher requirement of dissolved oxygen (DO) to breakdown microbes from organic waste. This results in the death of fishes and aquatic plants and complete disruption in the aquatic ecosystem.
Leveraging on the already established safety data, We test the products performance in applications for every stage of Paint & Coating formulations at different PVC contents, Assess the changes in the long term viscosity changes, Sag Resistance, Weight Per litre of Paint, coverage capacities, Freeze thaw stabilities, Bonding Strength, Shear Strength, Fluidity assessments and more… The high performance products are approved , Data sets are built based on ASTM , ISO & IS standards of Paint , coating & Construction chemical performance.and products are launched make this world safe again.
SCHUTZEN’s Plant based rheology modifiers offer longer term Stability as compared to Ethoxylated Cellulose & Starch ethers.
Our Ethylene oxide free, propylene oxide free & quaternary ammonium compound free system exhibits a naturally branched polymeric structure allowing for better pigment pigment dispersion and stearic stabilisation
Our Polymer systems reduce the foam generation in system during the application stage, Reducing critical impact and dependence on mineral oil & Silicone oil based ethoxylated
We also offer our fast acting biobased Defoamer & antifoam
We are committing to making our own truly sustainable, From cradle to grave.
SCHUTZEN helps you build sustainably , Our Biobased
bonding agents, binders and rheology additives allow for a
more working time, open time, bonding strength in
applications critically needing such a profile.
