BORMAWACHS Recyclable Plastic

APRIL 17, 2023

Dear Partners,

Waterborne materials in the Borma range are becoming more and more popular, the situation is picking up and we are very pleased about it, but we have to acknowledge that, although we did massive investment on metal cans, (claimed by our suppliers as properly isolated/coated to perform against rust), we are unfortunately facing some implications, and we would like to solve them in long-term basis.
Therefore after many checks and further trials, with different suppliers, we hereby would like to inform you that progressively by May next, our waterborne cans in the BORMA WACHS range will be in Recyclable plastic.
Please check pictures enclosed to introduce, future immediate new packs.

Cans are extremely solid and lid is reinforced, (as the whole can), with a metal ring on top, to grant perfect sealing and structural strength.
THe choice has not been easy, but the quality implications have become a must to be solved for the guarantee of a log term products shelf life.

At the same time, to keep a coordinated image, being plastic packs round shaped and no-more conic, we had to change also metal cans, which now will be with a pressure lid and a guarantee sealing ring, to avoid easy leakage or transport difficulties.
Please check pictures below.

It is natural that no product quality changes will be, as no formulation changes.
It will be just a strict pack change for a longer term NO RUST guarantee on BORMA WACHS Materials.

Sure about your understanding and consistent collaboration, we would like at last to confirm that all 20 Lt cans will be provided for reasons above with an internal plastic wrap. (Further big advantage for package disposal).

Certified installation materials, adhesives and construction products
The EMICODE mark guarantees that the material has been tested and certified according to its emission level. Compared to 1997, low-emission building materials now have a TVOC value (total quantity of volatile organic compounds) from one hundred to one thousand times lower. The EMICODE mark is not issued if a building material is suspected of altering genetic makeup, causing cancer or impairing reproductive capacity.
APEO (alkylphenol ethoxylates)
APEOs (alkylphenol ethoxylates) are highly persistent chemicals, which are deposited in the tissues, penetrating, through them, into the food chain.
Recent studies demonstrate its toxicity and danger, as potential endocrine disruptors.
