EnVia® certified products

An important part of your job is to formulate products that deliver the performance your customers need, while meeting both regulatory requirements and the broader goals of your company’s sustainability program.

At Arkema Coating Resins we share your commitment, and have initiated an innovative program to help you succeed. Products from Arkema Coating Resins that display the EnVia® trade name have passed our rigorous certification program to ensure they are suitable for use in formulations for sustainable paints, coatings, adhesives, sealants and construction products.

  • Have no intentionally added carcinogens, reproductive
    toxins or ozone depleting compounds

accepted regulatory or common definition of “formaldehyde-free.”
