We provide safe, lower-density solvents that are just as effective in applications as their toxic Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAP) solvent counterparts.
The Environmental Protection Agency classifies many toxic solvents as HAPs, which are defined as substances that can cause serious medical problems such as oncogenesis, miscarriages, blood dyscrasias, liver toxicities and more. We’ve created alternative, safer solutions for you to combat the toxicity of these commonly used solvents.
Our HAP-free solvent list includes HAP-free products that are excellent solvent substitutes for use with many polymers, resins, oils, paraffins and greases. Learn about how they’ve contributed to CBG customer success stories.
Changing legal requirements and increasing regulations are challenging solvent users to replace harmful solvents with safe and effective HAP-free solvent substitutes. Many states are making it difficult, and even illegal, to obtain HAP solvents.
Federal regulations often require monitoring exposure levels of certain HAP-containing solvents. This is not required when using our HAP-free solvent substitutes.
CBG HAP-free options are effective alternatives to using xylene, toluene, D-limonene and aromatic solvents—this is why many companies are using our safe solvent alternatives and foregoing the use of these toxic solvents altogether.
HAPs have been proven to potentially introduce serious medical risks through inhalation, skin/eye contact and ingestion. Our HAP-free solvents eliminate the risk of user exposure that can cause serious medical issues.
