The certification proves that Sicomin’s bio-based epoxy systems are eco-designed and have limited environmental impact compared to standard epoxy formulation.

Philippe Marcovich, President, Sicomin said that, “The Bureau Veritas certification shows that Sicomin’s eco-design strategy is successful and that bio-based epoxy chemistry can be on today’s industrialists’ agenda. We will continue to apply our certified eco-design approach on all new products and, when possible, will redesign existing products to further reduce our impact on the environment compared to conventional epoxy production.”

The Footprint Progress process consists of two levels: commitment to eco-design and product certification. After an intense three-year audit programme in accordance with international standards such as ISO 14062, ISO 14006 and EN ISO 14040/44 Sicomin’s GreenPoxy products have been certified, which allows the company to display the official, widely recognised Footprint Progress logo on their Greenpoxy range. This logo is issued by Bureau Veritas, a leader in certification of Environmental Management Systems accredited by over 60 bodies internationally.

The certification applies to the following GreenPoxy products: GreenPoxy 56, a clear and waterproof epoxy system, which contains over 52% plant and vegetable content, for tough and hard-wearing gloss laminates, GreenPoxy 33, a clear laminate with high mechanical properties which has over 35% plant content. As a result of the latest innovations in bio-based chemistry, GreenPoxy 33 is said to be able to achieve excellent wetting out properties, resulting in very low resin consumption.

GreenPoxy 28, a clear laminate with mechanical properties which has 28 % of its molecular structure deriving from plant origin. This epoxy resin system is developed for tools and parts resistant to temperatures.

Sicomin has been awarded the Bureau Veritas Footprint Progress Certification for its GreenPoxy products range. The Footprint Progress is a result driven certification that enables Sicomin to inform contractors and customers about their products' environmental impact throughout the product lifecycle.
