Concentrate!

On a global scale, there is an increased consumer demand for;

  • Utilising sustainable materials
  • Cutting water consumption
  • Reducing carbon emissions
  • Minimising single-use packaging

What is the Home Care industry doing to meet these requirements? At Surfachem, we believe that concentrated products are the most logical step towards a more sustainable planet. From reduced shipping of water, to less plastic pollution, this approach boasts untapped opportunities.

Our presentation, ‘Concentrate!’ aims to not only explore the potential of concentrated products, but to also share the scope of our current technical laboratory and blending facilities, both of which support the development and delivery of this next wave of everyday cleaning products.

TEGO® PP 1027 – Goodbye Scratches. Hello Gloss.

TEGO® PP 1027 is a new polymer, used in cleaning formulations for floors and shiny surfaces.
It is designed for home and professional use and provides a significantly improved gloss on treated surfaces.
The innovative and multifunctional additive provides a unique repair effect and reduces the appearance of fine scratches on a wide variety of surfaces. Just a small amount of TEGO® PP 1027 is sufficient to make frequently used areas appear fresh and new. It shows excellent compatibility with all types of surfactants and other formulation ingredients and is stable over a wide pH range.

Biocidal Product Families, opportunities and challenges

Biocidal Product Family (BPF) concept is a powerful tool for the industry, since it allows to group similar products, giving some space to future innovation and allowing to save significative amounts of money. It has been quite welcomed and widely used to accommodate full product portfolios. Since in many cases the number of products belonging to the family was quite big, last July authorities decided to reduce the complexity of BPF producing a guidance document setting clear rules on the similarity concepts. This presentation explains how to build a BPF according to the new criteria.

Advanced Defoaming Technologies for Controlling Foam

Foam control is critical for the optimal performance of cleaning systems.  Each system is unique in formulation and performance requirements, multiple defoaming technologies maybe necessary to satisfy the formulation parameters. The presentation will focus on defoaming technologies including state-of-the-art 3-dimensional (3D) siloxanes, silicones and “renewable” range chemistries.  3D siloxane products represent the most powerful defoaming technology available. The vegetable oils provide a greener alternative for sustainability, non-toxicity and biodegradability.

This presentation introduces MÜNZING CHEMIE as a specialist provider in foam control products whilst providing awareness into defoaming technology.

MÜNZING CHEMIE is over 180 years old, producing specialty additives for a multitude of applications.

Transport regulations for road round up – exemptions and derogations, Brexit, future changes

The transport regulations are complex, detailed and certainly lengthy but they contain many hidden treasures that companies often overlook. Caroline will guide you through the exemptions and derogations, you never know you might be able to save some money by introducing them into your business. She will also give you some insight into the changes being introduced through the 21st edition of the model regulations and other forthcoming changes that are likely to be introduced.

Home Care

9:50 am - 10:30 am

Home Care – Where is the industry heading?

In this presentation we are going to take a closer look at trends and developments impacting the home care industry. What is driving growth and how is the industry likely to perform over the next five years? Sustainability and the emergence of new products, as well as services and new business models - enabled through advanced technologies - will continue to cause disruption, forcing companies to constantly re-invent themselves and their products if they are to stay relevant in an ever-changing market environment.

Task Forces of Disinfectants, may be an opportunity?

The focus of the BPR is to harmonise the rules on the making the products available on the market, whilst ensuring a high level of protection of both human and animal health and the environment. On the other hand, the BPR improved a lot the workload for companies in order to authorise a BP. In addition, the recent publication of the ED provision and the new guidance on BP families make it even more complicated and costly. How SME can support their products? Task forces may represent a good opportunity to preserve the market.

Speaker

11:50 am - 12:10 pm

Boosting cleaning performances with green chelates

Removing hard water ions such as calcium and magnesium is a key part of many industrial and domestic processes that involve the use of water, including automatic dish wash and laundry. if these ions are not removed, insoluble deposit build up, resulting in dirty dishes, carbonate deposits on glass, fabrics greyness and industrial equipment that can become fouled up with scale.

The formulators are always looking for the most innovative and sustainable solution that can combine the best cleaning performances in combination with the best economic results.

The green aminicarboxylates (APCs) such as trisodium methylglycine diacetate (MGDA) and tetrasodium glutamate diacetate (GLDA) are highly effective to control the water hardness and boosting the cleaning performances.

They can be used as drop in replacement phophates (STPP,TKPP and other) and standard chelates. Furthermore, the green APCs outperform other alternative such as citrates gluconates.

Nouryon, as market leading chelating producer, is continuosly investing in research, development and innovation to find more sustainable and cost effective solutions. Nouryon is currently the only company that offer the full range of biodegradable chelating agents with superior ecological and toxilogical profile like MGDA and GLDA under the brand "Dissolvine".
