January 15, 2011 -- Annapolis, Maryland
Greenovation Group is excited to announce the development and immediate availability of a new line of high performance biofoams, biopolymers, and mega polymers for the polyurethane, polyurea, manufacturing, protective coatings, and composites industries!
The majority of our new patented polymers are sustainable replacements for mainstream petroleum-based and food-grade vegetable-oil based polymers currently in use worldwide. Our sustainable polymers are based upon a non-food vegetable-oil polyol and a water-based, water-blown formulation. These polymers do not degrade the world food supply, have no HFC's, have no CFC's, have no formaldehyde, and do not use dangerous blowing agents as do other biopolymers currently in use worldwide. Our exceptionally performing mega polymers are based upon a combination of no-VOC formulations.
Greenovation Group currently offers both sustainable biopolymer formulations and no-VOC mega polymer formulations for multiple applications and will also offer manufacturing and application licenses to interested OEM and product manufacturer's.
