OMNOVA Solutions Launches Mor-Glo Ultra G Resin for Floor Care
Beachwood, Ohio — April 7, 2015 — OMNOVA Solutions is introducing Mor-Glo Ultra G zinc-free polymer resin designed for the formulation of high-gloss floor care products.
The exclusive Twin-Linked polymer technology incorporated in Mor-Glo Ultra G resin results in an extraordinarily strong chemical bond that meets the challenge of producing a durable high-gloss, dirt-resistant finish without zinc, enabling compliance with strict environmental standards that continue to be adopted worldwide.
“As environmental consciousness and regulations continue to grow, organizations and institutions increasingly are eliminating use of zinc-based floor care products,” said Rick Sandford, general manager of OMNOVA’s global Coating Specialties business.
“Mor-Glo Ultra G resin has been designed to make sure our floor care customers can support the market shift from zinc-based products to environmentally preferred formulations without sacrificing the quality of the floor finish.”
OMNOVA’s new Twin-Linked polymer technology uniquely balances permanent and reversible crosslinks, which permits easy removability of the floor finish when used in accordance with product instructions.
Historically, the move to zinc-free formulas has been associated with compromises in finish durability and reparability. Finishes based on Mor-Glo Ultra G resin, however, deliver excellent durability and response to high-speed burnishing, which saves time for busy maintenance service teams.
“Our exclusive Twin-Linked polymer technology enables Mor-Glo Ultra G to perform like zinc-based systems, said Rick Krause, market leader for OMNOVA’s Home and Personal Care product lines. “And the unique bonding of our polymer is also reversible, making it just as easy to remove and re-apply during scheduled or unplanned maintenance, all of which is a real time savings.”
He added, “In addition to employing our unique Twin-Linked technology, Mor-Glo Ultra G has been formulated to have a higher density of bonding particles, resulting in an extraordinarily tough and dirt-resistant surface."
Mor-Glo Ultra G has already received a positive reception in trials by OMNOVA customers and can contribute to the attainment of a range of environmental endorsements and certifications including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Design for Environment (DfE), as well as Greenseal, UL Ecologo, and both the EU and Nordic Ecolabel.
