OMNOVA Solutions Introduces New Polymer For High-End Floor Polishes

Published on 2007-03-22. Author : SpecialChem

FAIRLAWN, OHIO -- OMNOVA Solutions announces the commercialization of a premium styrene acrylic floor care polymer, Mor-Glo® 2007, designed to formulate polishes with outstanding "pop" when burnished, superior wear between burnishes and long lasting durability to reduce the frequency of strip-outs. These polishes provide the "wet-look" desired by many high-end commercial polish users and improve the appearance of the floor between maintenance intervals. The Mor-Glo polymer is ideal for odor-sensitive, high-traffic environments such as hospitals, schools, and grocery and retail stores.

In addition to the excellent aesthetics and improved durability that may be achieved with Mor-Glo 2007, the product promotes easy application of polishes, thanks to OMNOVA's proprietary PolyFoxT fluoropolymer. With the inclusion of the environmentally-preferred PolyFox material, no additional fluorosurfactant needs to be added to the polish formulation.

"OMNOVA is excited to offer this significant addition to the Mor-Glo family of products, which have long been recognized for quality and innovation," said Jamey Gaston, OMNOVA Solutions' Technical Manager for Floor Care Chemicals. "OMNOVA Solutions is committed to advancing the floor care industry by providing differentiated technologies and responsive service to meet the demands of today's floor polish environments."
