Product Design & Development

New Product Development

As part of our business strategy, HS&E and regulatory issues are fully considered at the product design phase;

  • All substances are screened before formulation into new products
  • All projects have VOC targets
  • Risk assessment is integral in the product development process

Product Stewardship

Product Stewardship is an internally-driven process of self-assessment and regulation, covering the product lifecycle from cradle to grave. It covers individual raw materials, existing formulations and new products; encompassing product development, product manufacture, product in-service and at end-of life. It considers situations where legislation may not be enforcing restrictions, but where societal concerns may exist (pre-empting potential new regulations). The aim is to go beyond compliance, where ever possible, and make our products as safe as possible for humans and the environment
