Reverdia’s bio-succinic acid finds application in paints

During the 2016 BIO World Congress in San Diego, Reverdia (Italy), the dedicated JV belonging to Roquette France and Royal DSM (The Netherlands) announced that its BIOSUCCINIUM® succinic acid, in combination with Roquette’s POLYSORB® isosorbide, is being used in paints and coatings by the well-known European producer Mader.

The new CADELI® paint range commercialized under the brand CAMI®, reportedly has key attractive physical properties such as hardness and scratch resistance.

Specific formulations in the CADELI® range provide additional functionalities such as anti-microbial and anti-formaldehyde effects for interior paint. Both formulations are 98% bio-based and EU-Ecolabel certified.

Reverdia also announced two new collaborative partnerships:

  1. with UK-based food tray producer, Sharpak, and UK retailer Waitrose on the development of biodegradable plastic packaging and products using PBS (polybutylene succinate);
  2. with Covestro (Germany / formerly named Bayer Material Science) on the development of thermoplatic polyurethane for use in applications such as footwear and consumer electronics. See more on Covestro’s PU development via biobased-material-conference-2016
