Süd-West-Chemie Develops Replacement Product
The Swabian chemicals company SWC develops replacement products for hazardous substances and actively engages in projects to save resources. The conservation of resources and protection of the environment is growing increasingly more important in many fields of industry and the company seeks to contribute to environmental protection through investments as well as the use of more sustainable products and raw materials. A new development to replace hazardous substances in line with this ambition, SWC has developed a new product, Supraplast 3616. This special lowmolecular phenol novolak is synthesised in an extremely narrow molecular weight distribution. This tremendously improves its properties in most high-performance applications. The free-monomer content approaches zero, which means that Supraplast 3616 does not require labelling as a hazardous substance.
