IFF features naturally-derived solutions at European Coatings Show 2023

23 February 2023

IFF will showcase its comprehensive industrial solutions polymer portfolio with green chemistry*-based materials at the European Coatings Show 2023.

At stand 1-560, visitors will discover IFF’s broad range of customised, environmentally friendly solutions to address coating and printing ink formulation and manufacturing challenges. Solutions include how to potentially improve coating functionality, increase savings and improve worker safety – while supporting sustainable and bio-based solutions.

IFF’s broad range of renewable polymer solutions for sustainable coating, adhesive, paint or ink products includes:

  • Lattice® NTC Colloidal Microcrystalline Cellulose: a functional fiber which improves formulation stability with low viscosity. It is biodegradable and allows greener paint and coating formulations.
  • WALSRODER™ Nitrocellulose (NC): a leading brand for printing inks, wood coatings and varnishes. IFF’s novel, free-flowing NC grades are packed with an automated emptying device that allows for an extremely short emptying time (15-25 seconds per drum) and eliminates the need to manually lift a drum, resulting in higher output, production efficiency and improved worker safety.1
  • POLYOX™ Polyethylene Oxide: a water-soluble thickener, binder, film-forming polymer that improves adhesion.
  • ETHOCEL™ Ethylcellulose: a thickener and binder for solvent-based paints, wood coatings, and printing inks, enabling reliable performance.
  • TEXTURECEL™ Carboxymethylcellulose: a thickener and binder in water-based coatings and ink formulations. It offers thickening and rheology modification properties and is an extremely versatile and economical product. It is also a natural alternative to synthetic polymers.
  • METHOCEL™ Cellulose Ethers: a key formulation component in paint removers. They are versatile due to their solubility in water and many organic solvents.

"Our portfolio consists of several products with a positive sustainability profile,” said Christophe Massip, Marketing Director, Industrial Solutions, IFF. "We’re committed to be the partner our customers can count on, by delivering quality through our operational excellence and formulation expertise. Our goal is to partner with our customers, providing novel and greener alternatives to help reduce the environmental footprint of their end products.”

Attendees can also join live product presentations by IFF experts on March 28 and 29 at Hall 5, highlighting the Company’s broad range of naturally derived polymers to support customers’ sustainability goals and solutions in sustainable waterborne coating formulations.
