Green Logic paint detackifier
Green Logic™ paint detackifier is a liquid, chitosan/aluminum salt-based paint denaturant that provides an environmentally responsible alternative to traditional melamine-formaldehyde and acrylic acid-based chemistries.
Paint denaturants, also referred to as “paint detackifiers,” are added to the water curtain circulating in down draft, water washed paint spray booths to render over-sprayed paint non-sticky. In traditional automotive OEM wet paint spraying operations, only 50 to 80 percent of the paint is transferred to the vehicle, with the remaining 20 to 50 percent being carried away in the booth air stream and subsequently removed by the circulating water curtain. Paint denaturants are added to the water curtain to detackify, coagulate, and flocculate this over sprayed paint, allowing it to be removed from the water in either a continuous or batch process.
The unique feature of Green Logic™ paint detackifier is that it is derived from crab, lobster, and shrimp shells, which are natural waste products of food production. Green Logic™ paint detackifier has been singled out by OEM users as “best in class” and nominated for numerous environmental awards. This recognition has been driven by the performance gains realized not only in paint detackification, but also in the overall paint spray booth operation. The benefits to automotive manufacturers are greater ease of operation and overall system cost savings that are attributable to lower paint spray booth maintenance, biocide and wastewater treatment costs. Moreover, the paint sludge generated from the use of Green Logic paint detackifier is more amenable to biodegradation.
