Malaysia, November 2016
IGL aims to raise the standards in REACH:ECHA compliance by introducing a new formulation for the European Union market, by reducing the usage of Tin in our formulation down to Zero. The formulation will retain its ease of use application and performance quality while eliminating the need for Tin in the formulation.
IGL, the pioneer of high solid low VOC coatings, announced the launch of the new REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) compliant coating Ecocoat EZ in European Union.
The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is the driving force among regulatory authorities in implementing the EU’s groundbreaking chemicals legislation for the benefit of human health and the environment as well as for innovation and competitiveness. ECHA helps companies to comply with the legislation, advances the safe use of chemicals, provides information on chemicals and addresses chemicals of concern.
REACH is a regulation of the European Union, adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals, while enhancing the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry. It also promotes alternative methods for the hazard assessment of substances in order to reduce the number of tests on animals.
IGL aims to raise the standards in safe chemistry by introducing disruptive formulations that fully comply with local regulations.
CC Keong the founder of IGL stressed that the focus of IGL is to increase and strengthen the installers capabilities and product knowledge in the EU through IGL’s technical and training support, after sales support and dedicated sales & consulting teams with the assistance of IGL Coatings EU’s Mr. Roel Reijers.
