VELOX to Distribute Umicore’s Accelerators Range

26 November 2013

With this partnership, VELOX states it will incorporate the Umicore’s proven product range VALIREX into its product portfolio. This approach enables VELOX to better meet its customers’ requirements and to fulfill its commitment to offering a larger and comprehensive product range for the composites industry. The cooperation will also include the brand new developed ECOS ND15.

Umicore states that its Ecos ND15 offers customers the ability to deal pro-actively with the potential hazard classification of cobalt carboxylates under REACh.

Ecos ND15 is a cobalt containing polymer. Though polymers are not subject to REACh registration, a hazard assessment of Ecos ND15 has been made. This is key to derive a hazard classification based on sound scientific data. The company claims that the results show that Ecos ND15 is a non-hazardous substance for all endpoints tested.
