CHEMETER, the tool for compliant and updated safety data sheet
Guaranteeing regulatory compliance and the safety of products supplied is one of the fundamental aspects of our time.
The variety of rules to be respected and their continuous evolution makes it difficult to have a clear and updated picture. The situation becomes more complex when one also faces markets beyond the national territory.
Substantial help comes from the use of a tool like CHEMETER, software for the preparation of safety data sheets and labels adapted to the regulations and languages of over 50 countries in the world.

Technological approach to sustainable household and cleaning applications
Sustainable approaches are becoming more and more mandatory in almost all industries. A development aiming at creating innovation with low impact on Environment and safety in use is the core of the current study.
New technological approaches for household and cleaning applications are here presented focusing, in particular, on the sustainable impact.
The mission behind this realization is the NIP® program, aiming at a sustainable vision, based on Nature & People respect through unique and innovative technologies. BRASCA’s long-term experience in innovation is here transformed in an evolution: innovative research to find ethical and sustainable ingredients for household market.

The demands and expectations of our modern society towards chemical products is ever increasing, and formulas based on renewable, non-toxic and biodegradable chemicals are required in detergents. This affects emulsifiers, solvents, dispersants, wetting agents, defoamers, foamers, rheology modifiers, and anticorrosive agents. All the ingredients are expected and checked to be compliant with these new demands. MÜNZING, which is a company over 180 years old, produces and customizes specialty additives for a variety of applications, and new trends and customer requests are considered in the development of new products. In the presentation, concepts like green, biodegradable, and renewable will be discussed, and MÜNZING’s green products will be put into that context without forgetting that performance in hygiene is mandatory. Wetting, dispersing and emulsifying properties in conjunction with good foam control are very important to achieve the desired cleanliness. Foam control is critical for the optimal performance of cleaning systems and to achieve optimal productivity in filling processes with foamy cleaners. Because each system is unique in formulation and performance requirements, multiple defoaming technologies are necessary to satisfy the many needs, and that is especially important when a “green” product is requested. The presentation will provide insight into defoaming technologies and will focus on green defoaming.

Surfactant-free (Pickering) Emulsions for Homecare Applications
A Pickering emulsion is stabilized by means of solid particles which adsorb onto the interface
between the two phases. This type of emulsion was named after S. U. Pickering, who
described the phenomenon in 1907. The process is used to produce emulsifier-free W/O and
also O/W emulsions. The presentation will show the theory and practical examples.
