Biobased paints: What’s the story?

If you’re looking to produce biobased paints, our solvents are proven to benefit people, planet and profit in both paint & ink processing and their associated applications.

The greatest benefit that our lactic acid-based solutions deliver? Durability and a low carbon footprint that creates a minimal environmental impact across the product lifecycle.

PURASOLV for safe solvents

Our PURASOLV® lactate esters are safe solvents that help you improve formulation properties while reducing environmental impact – across a range of applications from plastic paint, to pigment dispersion, to cleaning and stripping, to wide screen ink-jet inks.

What makes PURASOLV great for paints and inks?

  • High solvency power
  • Miscible with aliphatic solvents
