Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) Exempt Options

Organic compounds participate in atmospheric photochemical reactions and react with nitrogen oxides to form photochemical smog, posing harmful environmental impacts in addition to other short & long term adverse health benefits. 

VOC-exempt solvents have been tested and approved by the US EPA as they do not have atmospheric photochemical reactivity.  Aculon offers VOC-exempt solvents for many of our application platforms.  

PFOA-Free

Aculon does not utilize PFOA or water-soluble fluorinated compounds.

RoHS & REACH Compliant

All Aculon technologies are certified or designed to be RoHS & REACH compliant.

Minimized the Mileage

Reduced material usage also means reduction of packaging and reduction of energy utilized for transportation.

Our global network of local suppliers and distributors in Europe and Asia ensures the most efficient supply chain possible, further reducing transportation-related emissions.

Aculon utilizes UPS’s carbon-neutral shipping program when shipping to customers whenever possible.
