Bayer waterborne polyurethane products tested for bluesign

The Impranil line of waterborne polyurethane dispersions from Bayer MaterialScience, used in coating of textiles have been tested and certified under the bluesign system.

The bluesign system from Bluesign technologies defines criteria for chemicals use, including the responsible use of resources, effective hazardous materials management and the elimination of all dangerous substances.

The two companies have agreed to enter into a strategic alliance for this purpose, with the objective being to ensure safe production processes and working conditions along the entire value chain.

“The new partnership with bluesign technologies fits in perfectly with our comprehensive sustainability concept, which conserves resources and minimizes impact on mankind and environment”, Bayer MaterialScience said.

Textile manufacturers in search of chemicals with bluesign certification can now find information on these products in the bluefinder database, which currently has data on some 5,000 chemicals used in the industry.

The bluesign system gives consideration to substance lists with restricted use and advises manufacturers on how to minimize hazards to people and the environment.

By jointly using the system, participants can cut costs along the processing chain and meet new market demands more quickly. The "bluesign approved" label is accepted by both brand owners and major wholesalers.

Bayer MaterialScience recently set a milestone in innovative and sustainable textile coating with the introduction of INSQIN, an integrated and complete package for the textile industry based on waterborne polyurethane technology.

The package encompasses all aspects of materials development, right through to production by certified manufacturers and which redefines the idea of collaboration within the value chain.

"Bayer MaterialScience has been supporting its customers for a long time now in achieving goals of both innovation and sustainability," explains Nicholas Smith, Global Head of Textile Coating at Bayer MaterialScience.

He adds, "With our waterborne, totally solvent-free polyurethane raw materials, users currently can greatly improve industrial hygiene, cut energy consumption by 50 percent, and water use by as much as 95 percent."

With 2013 sales of EUR 11.2 billion, Bayer MaterialScience is among the world’s largest polymer companies, focused on the manufacture of high-tech polymer materials and the development of innovative solutions. (AR)
