EcoStix® bio-PSAs and EcoMer® biomonomers have helped clients meet recyclability and biodegradability KPIs (key performance indicators), reducing reliance on fossil fuels and improving product performance.
Adhesives, Paints & Coatings: Using our patented EcoMer technology, EcoStix bio-PSA is an alternative to a wide variety of petrochemicals such as acrylate and vinyl monomers. For example, EcoStix can replace butyl acrylate in many industrial applications including paints, adhesives, plastics, inks, toners, plasticizers and surfactants.
Labels: EcoStix bio-PSA is a waterborne pressure sensitive adhesive designed for a wide range of label, film and specialty applications like recyclable packaging, labels and stamps. It offers total biodegradability and repulpability for adhesion to materials that are compostable, such as bio-based plastic films and paper.
Personal Care Products: As a drop-in replacement for polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP), our biopolymers act as the fixative agent in hair gel formulations, serving to hold, style and protect. PVP is a petroleum-based product that experiences pricing instability, while our product ensures long-term, stable costs that aren’t tied to the price of oil. Most importantly, our product enables customers to market a green product that meets consumer needs in a way that traditional products in this space cannot.
