Lonza has announced that Proxel® BZ Plus Preservative is now compatible for the in-can preservation of interior paints in accordance with the Blue Angel label criteria RAL-UZ 102. The Blue Angel environmental label designates low-emission wall and ceiling paints primarily for interior use and applies to emulsion latex, silicate and silicate emulsion paint products.

Environmental Label Certification

  • The Blue Angel is an internationally recognized German Ecolabel scheme that guarantees a product or service meets highest standards when it comes to its environmental, health and performance characteristics
  • Obtaining this designation requires rigorous evaluation against criteria developed by the German Federal Environment Agency
  • Label certification of finished products requires paint manufactures to use only approved active substance combinations in their paint formulations

Following the recent classification and labelling change that has been agreed in Europe for methylisothiazolinone (MIT), formulators have even further difficulty when selecting the appropriate preservation of their eco-labeled paint products,” said Johannes Koehler, EMEA Marketing Manager for Lonza.

"The acceptance of the color stabilization system within Proxel® BZ Plus Preservative now gives the formulator an additional option when considering ongoing compliance with Blue Angel."
