Omyasmart Technology – the soft solution for environmental friendly water-based products

Our multifunctional neutralizing agents combine elevated pH value, pH buffering, and salt technology to offer a three-pronged approach for improving the long-term stability of your water-based systems. 

 

This is in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by all UN member states in 2015, which are laying down the most important principles on how to preserve our planet and develop our society.

Omyasmart  Next Generation

Omyasmart Next Generation (OSNG), now available in Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America, satisfies the request for a lithium-free product with better viscosity behavior in acrylic based paints.

Products containing OSNG save time, effort, and unnecessary work required for reformulation because they are not currently subject to CLP/GHS regulation changes.

Advanced well-being and less hazardous solution for water-based products with Omyasmart Technology

Omyasmart Technology is valuable to companies that are looking to take further steps to protect their employees and their health. Furthermore, they also want to offer their customers health-friendly products.    

 

Water-based products require a high pH value or additives to ensure longevity. Existing neutralizing agents on the market are highly caustic and skin-sensitizing which demands increased safety precautions. They are often corrosive and attack surfaces.

Stable over the years thanks to excellent pH buffering effect

Other additives tend to have unpleasant odors or contain VOCs. Biocides are also still used to extend durability but are increasingly being formulated out due to significant health hazards such as skin irritation and the associated hazardous substance labelling and classification. 

 

With Omyasmart technology, you can achieve a moderately high pH value and keep your water-based product stable over a long period of time due to its excellent pH buffering effect.

Omyasmart and the labelling standards

Our products are odorless, VOC and SVOC-free, and meet Ecolabel requirements in Europe and other strict regional labelling standards such as the Thai Green Ecolabel in Asia.

pH buffer effect of Zinc Oxide (ZnO)

Learn about the extraordinary inorganic pH-buffer system of ZnO and its synergy with alkali-based substances in our latest publication.

 

In this work, we investigated the pH buffer performance in closed and open systems by mathematical simulations compared to results from lab experiments, in order to reproduce the requirements of the paint industry.

 

The results clearly confirm that ZnO is an effective buffer that supports the action of useful alkali based substances like carbonates. Sign up now and enjoy the reading!
