Eco Safety Products is a green building industry pioneer and innovator of sustainable chemistry meeting the growing needs of green building compliant products. Green building products are becoming the mainstream criteria for new building design and existing building renovation requirements. This common sense approach to a balanced synergy between people and environment is a critical driving force for every product we develop and manufacture.
Our Mission: Advancing high performance sustainable chemistry for a healthier planet and its occupants.
The Problem: It is estimated that up to 10% of toxic emissions (global warming) is created from the paint, coatings, and chemicals industry. Up to 30% of new and existing buildings report excessive complaints of poor indoor air quality.
Worker Safety: Constant exposures to toxic chemicals lead to physical and mental health risks, lower productivity, corporate liability and economic loss.
Sick Building Syndrome: Illness and negative side effects of building occupants include respiratory disease, headaches, fatigue, and more. Many studies are beginning to report startling relationships to Autism, Alzheimer's, and Cancer as a result to exposure of commonly used hazardous chemical ingredients.
Inferior Performance of Water-Based Chemistry: As much as 80% of the chemicals used in the paint and coating industry have converted to water-based chemistry in order to meet stringent environmental regulations, however, it has resulted in unsatisfactory performance when compared to traditional toxic petroleum based chemistry. In order to help compensate for performance degradation, specialty toxic additives are incorporated into formulations.
Our Solution:We incorporate toxin free renewably sourced plant based ingredients and recycled ingredients that are diverted from landfills. The plant based (bio-based) ingredients replicate the function of petroleum without the hazards. Our technology uses a proprietary emulsion process that allows incorporation with water to obtain the best of both worlds. We accomplish lower energy demand, lower CO2 output, and higher petroleum like performance without the use of toxic solvents. These natural solvent alternatives include derivatives of soy, corn, sugar, linseed, nut oils, and more.
All of our products achieve Ultra Low (<10 g/l) to No V.O.C.'s meeting the most stringent regulations any where in the world.
We don't use common toxic paint and chemical ingredients such as: formaldehyde, isocyanates, acetone, glycol ethers, crystalline silica, heavy metals, methylene chloride, N-methylpyrrolidone (NMP), and others.
We only use water-based resins (Acrylics, Urethanes, Hybrids) when required that are 100% solvent free and then create bio-based emulsions with the resins to give them petroleum solvent-like performance and avoid the need for toxic plasticizers or coalescing aids.
