Industrial Hygiene – Cleaning and Sanitization
Cleaning and sanitization: 2 keys for the optimization of your production and of the protection of your products is the topic of the presentation of Vink Chemicals team, consisting of Sangita Singh and Nicolas Babier.
Efficient preservation of paints and coatings is becoming an increasing challenge for the respective manufacturers. One main reason for this are the permanently changing regulatory requirements regarding the use of biocides. The biocide experts of Vink Chemicals support their customers with a holistic solution: conventional and less conventional wet-state preservatives, in-house microbiological tests, a production-specific plant hygiene concept including hygiene audits, sanitizing or cleaning solutions and dedicated technical advises are proposed to optimize the required use of biocides in the production of paints and coatings.
