Welcome to our campaign website #CoatingsNeedPreservatives!
Preservatives are becoming increasingly unavailable for paints, printing inks and artist’s colours. This will impact millions of coated products. Without preservatives, there will be an increase in wasted product and a need for more frequent repainting. This directly contradicts the EU’s green and circular ambitions. Today, only a handful of preservatives remain for industry and the situation is expected to deteriorate further.
Let’s discuss preservatives and find a solution that works for the benefit of all. Please find below our position paper, frequently asked questions and graphics highlighting our perspective and proposed solution to prevent the unavailability of preservative. Soon we will be able to add on the potential impact as we are currently conducting an impact assessment. Stay tuned.
