How to formulate label-free surfactants while keeping the performance
After June 2015, the full implementation of regulation 1272/2008 on classification, labelling, and packaging (CLP) will have a considerable impact on how the standard home care products are labelled. Instead of being classified as an irritant or a harmful product, a large portion of cleaning goods will be classified as corrosive.

This change will negatively influence end-customer buying decisions in home care. Therefore, a key-topic in the industry is to reformulate established products by replacing old workhorses with new label-free surfactants.
We focus our work on how to employ our label-free surfactants to achieve top performance.

Visit the seminar on Friday, October 17, in hall 2 at 11:45 a.m. by KOLB’s expert, Ms. Nina Kalsberger, Application Chemist.

We look forward to your visit at booth 452 at the 61st SEPAWA congress in Fulda, Germany, from October 15 to 17, 2014.
