Umicore introduces with Ecos ND15 an innovative cobalt-based technology that offers an easy drop-in replacement for cobalt carboxylates.
Ecos ND15 is a sustainable alternative curing technology for unsaturated polyester resin applications.
It is an alternative to accelerators currently in use by both resin manufacturers and composite fabricators, maintaining an excellent and stable quality level.
Evenly the Ecos ND15 is used as sustainable alternative to driers used in paints, coatings and inks.
Umicore’s innovative Ecos ND15 offers customers the ability to deal pro-actively with the potential Hazard classification of cobalt carboxylates under REACh.
Ecos ND15 is a cobalt containing polymer. Though polymers are not subject to REACh registration, a Hazard assessment of Ecos ND15 has been made. This is key to derive a hazard classification based on sound scientific data. The results show that Ecos ND15 is a non hazardous substance for all endpoints tested
