“Given current technologies, formulating a sustainable, anti-viral paint with good stability and tinting properties can be quite challenging,” said Geert Hofman, Vice President Construction Specialties. “Nouryon’s Arquad GS innovation is focused on solving complex customer challenges and addressing emerging market demands. This product will support our customers in developing anti-viral and anti-microbial coatings with excellent sustainability profiles and premium product attributes.”
Arquad GS is an innovative anti-virus technology designed to deactivate viruses, such as influenza, that contaminate a paint’s film surface. The environmentally friendly additive may be used to partially or fully replace traditional in-can preservative and anti-microbial agents. The product is compliant with China Green Label GB/T 35602-2017 and enables customers to formulate high-quality, low-VOC paint.
Arquad GS is also compatible with a broader range of emulsions, pigments, additives and tinters relative to conventional alternatives. The utilization of these paints contributes to healthier homes and working environments, and supports Nouryon’s Commitment to a Sustainable Future.
Nouryon will launch its Arquad GS product at the CHINACOAT show from December 8-10, 2020, in Guangzhou. For more information, visit the Nouryon booth (#2.1 C33) or the event page.
