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