Chem-Trend (Maisach, Germany), a manufacturer of high-performance release agents, purging compounds and other ancillary molding products, has announced additional health, safety and environment (HSE) benefits for its Chemlease EZ Series product line, including semi-permanent sealers, release agents and cleaners for all composites applications worldwide. The EZ Series already complies with the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP), which aim to further reduce hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) that are known or suspected to cause cancer or other serious health effects. In the coming months, the EPA NESHAP initiative will expand with tighter compliance monitoring, Europe’s Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) standards will include updated regulatory lists, and Thailand’s emissions efforts are also expected to increase.
