Clariant, a sustainability-focused specialty chemicals company, is excited to bring the company’s latest innovations to customers at the American Coatings Show 2024. Expert representatives will be spotlighting a variety of innovations to improve performance and reduce environmental footprints through bio-based ingredients, as well as opportunities for collaboration with Clariant specialists.

“Clariant is committed to helping the industry transition away from fossil carbon materials towards greener carbon alternatives,” commented Sebastian Prock, Head of Marketing & Application Development, Industrial Applications, Business Unit Care Chemicals. “The VITA portfolio offers 100% bio-based products and Clariant also has a new portfolio of additives to simplify the formulation of high-performance water-based coatings for industrial applications.” 

The VITA product line offers fully segregated, 100% plant-based products, including polyglycols and ethylene oxide derivatives for use in paint and coatings production. Derived from bioethanol, these products are chemically equivalent to fossil-based analogs and show the same performance and efficiency, while significantly lowering carbon footprints compared to traditional materials.

In addition, Clariant offers natural-origin wax products with at least 98% bio-based renewable content. These enhance coating aesthetics, durability, and manufacturing processes. Certified biomass balance-based TERRA options allow sustainable substitutions without compromising performance.

“We’re also delighted to introduce the newest addition to Clariant’s portfolio of light and heat stabilizers for SMP sealants: AddWorks IBC 760,” commented Ray Gonzales, Head of Marketing Coatings & Adhesives, Business Unit Adsorbents and Additives. “This technology surpasses the performance of current benzotriazole-containing solutions in the market, and it offers improved protection against UV and thermal degradation.”

Omya and Clariant have been jointly granted a European Patent for the AddWorks IBC 760 technology, an innovative label-free light and heat stabilizer solution for SMP sealants.
