Improved Logistics and Supply Chain for Leading Paint Manufacturer
Helped stay ahead of tighter regulations while saving time and money
A leading paint and coatings manufacturer needed to reformulate its industry-leading aerosol product in the face of new environmental regulations for maximum incremental reactivity (MIR) values. The tighter restrictions, which impact the entire industry, presented the company with a unique opportunity to get ahead of the implementation of the regulations and solidify its leadership position with key customers, such as large home improvement brands.
After Nexeo Solutions’ lab services team tested several blending options for the new formula, the customer chose dimethyl carbonate (DMC), a colorless, odorless solvent that, unlike the xylene and toluene already in use at the facility, is exempt from regulations on volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
