The Ecos ND 15 (Cobalt Polymer) product range is the new catalyst technology of Umicore Specialty Materials Brugge NV (USMB), to be used as replacement for common Cobalt-Carboxylates.
Altough polymers are exempted from REACh, USMB has already covered all issues, and so is prepared for the moment when REACh eventually addresses polymers as well. In this context USMB offers a real long term solution.
All tests done by and in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institut have shown, that the Ecos ND 15 is none hazardous for human health and the environment, it is not toxic, not aqua toxic and not sensitizing. The Cobalt Polymer complex does not require any labelling and therefore it is a real solution for the future.
Our Ecos product group contains singlemetal-driers, drier blends and a selection of products for the printing ink industry. We have products for solventbased and waterbased systems. A detailed surview and further information are available upon request.
