ShiraSol – A Breakthrough Safe, Green, Versatile, Zero VOC Solvent to Replace Mineral Spirits and Other Slow Evaporating Solvents. | The Green Solvents Show #004

ShiraSol replaces slow evaporating and toxic solvents like mineral spirits, white spirits, and paint thinners. It has better solvency and an evaporation rate similar to mineral spirits. ShiraSol may work as a primary or co-solvent in aliphatic, aromatic and ketone systems.

TBF Develops ZemaSol™, a Widely Applicable, Safer and VOC-compliant Solvent| The Green Solvents Show #003

ZemaSol™ is a very effective and efficient solvent alternative for xylene, Parachlorobenzotrifluoride (PCBTF), Tertiary Butyl Acetate (TBAc) or toluene. A multi-purpose and cost-effective solvent, ZemaSol™ is widely used in industrial cleaning and formulations for epoxies, urethanes, alkyds, inks, and adhesives.

TBF Develops Safer, Non-polluting Solvents | The Green Solvents Show #002

TBF has developed alternative solvents which emit very low or zero levels of VOCs and are considered VOC-compliant, non-HAPs, do not create or deplete ozone, and are less toxic. TBF solvents, however, perform as well or better as the solvents they replace in most applications.

The Story Behind TBF Environmental – Developing new VOC Compliant Solvents Safe for the Environment | The Green Solvents Show #001

Many solvents used in industry contain volatile organic compounds. When emitted to the atmosphere, VOCs contribute to the formation of ground-level ozone which produces smog. VOCs are also harmful to human health. The EPA has introduced maximum VOC content levels for hundreds of products to limit the emission of VOCs. TBF Environmental develops industrial solvents which perform well in a wide range of applications, but which contain zero or very small levels of VOCs. Companies manufacturing products using solvents can meet the VOC regulations and reduce the risk to health and safety while maintaining solvent performance.
