Sustainable lacquers

Lacquers made from renewable and recycled raw materials are increasingly in demand in the chemical industry when it comes to developing sustainable products and reducing CO² emissions.

naRoLa® – laquer made from renewable raw materials

Our product naRoLa® is a renewable raw material lacquer, an innovative product Lott-Lacke has placed on the market for 25 years. In the early days, this lacquer was only used on environmentally friendly cork and wooden floorings. Today it is just as often used on bio-based plastics and paper. sdfsdfsddgs

At least 50% renewable raw materials are used

It is important that only raw materials are used that have been proven to have been produced either 100% or partially from renewable raw materials. Our label naRoLa® is only given to lacquer compositions containing a proportion of > 50% renewable raw materials. In order to avoid the so-called greenwashing, we have our suppliers certify the origin of the raw materials and we influence manufacturing processes.

The customer or his technical requirements for the coating decide on the possible proportion of renewable raw materials in the lacquer formulation (50-95%). On request, we can also calculate the CO² footprint for our sustainable lacquer systems.

The best for last: all lacquer systems from Lott-Lacke can theoretically be developed on the basis of renewable raw materials. Contact our team here for questions about lacquers made from our renewable raw materials (naRoLa®)!

We promote the circular economy and help to secure the availability of raw materials in the long term!

reCyLa® – laquer based on recycled old laquers

Another new lacquer system that we offer on request is reCyLa®, a lacquer based on recycled old lacquer.

More than ten years of experience in the production of lacquer systems based on recycled old lacquer

Our product reCyLa® stands for recycled lacquer. More than 10 years ago, together with a customer, we developed a lacquer that should contain a high proportion of ‘old lacquer’. At that time this project was still more economically motivated, but in the past few years it has become a product group in which we purposefully reuse the raw material ‘old lacquer’ for reasons of sustainability.

By the term ‘old lacquer’ we mean lacquers/ lacquer raw materials which either have not passed the quality check of our incoming control, or of which the best before date has expired. In addition, we buy back lacquer residues from our customers’ production processes if certain quantities are reached. Therefore, the raw material ‘old lacquer’ is not available indefinitely.

If a certain amount of ‘old lacquer’ is available, this ‘raw material’ goes through a defined quality assurance process and is then reserved as a raw material especially for new lacquers that are distributed as reCyLa® lacquers.

As a rule, reCyLa® lacquer systems contain the raw material ‘old lacquer’ (recycled material) on a scale between 5 and 25%.

 

Sustainable management with recycled lacquers

Across all industries, there are now requirements for our customers that their products should contain a certain proportion of recycled materials. With our product group reCyLa® we support our customers in these new projects in an innovative way. On request, we can also calculate the CO² footprint for our sustainable lacquer systems.

Sustainability is a mega trend in the chemical industry and our generation: many lacquer systems from Lott-Lacke can therefore theoretically be developed on the basis of recycled raw materials. Contact our team here for questions about lacquer made from recycled raw materials (reCyLa®)!
