Our safe eco-friendly cleaning solutions
As a manufacturer or formulator of cleaning products, your main aim is to offer innovating products that satisfy the consumer desire and needs.
Whatever the end market, and beyond always looking for the most effective and universal cleaner at the lowest price, consumers now want "cleaner" cleaners, and expect manufacturers to offer products that are "safe for the user and their children, safe for the Earth and their equipment or furnitures".
The acid cleaners or paint strippers do not derogate to this new rule and we know that, as a responsible manufacturer, you are facing strong challenges for developing highly efficient and sustainable products with a lowest possible environmental impact while meeting ever stringent and binding regulations and certifications.
At Arkema, we do not want you choose between efficiency and safety or the environment. Whether your end customer is a housekeeper, a school or hospital, a brewery or industrial, a professional or a do-it-yourselfer, we have the solutions to meet all these requirements.
