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.
