Sustainable resin systems
RSL is one of the leading players in developing sustainable solutions in the resin systems marketplace. Decades of putting the environment first means reducing the impact of what the company does has become second nature. It is a truly embedded commitment which has established RSL as the UK manufacturer with the most comprehensive range of solvent-free, water-based products.
View from the British Coatings Federation (BCF)
The BCF first produced a Sustainable Development policy in 2009 to drive best practice and as members of the Federation, RSL backs their ambition for the wider coatings industry to be best in environmental class. Read the latest BCF Sustainability Policy 2016 here.
Lowest ever VOC products – our latest story
Having a large range of solvent-free, water-based products means RSL gives customers more opportunity than any other manufacturer to make a green choice. Together we are dramatically reducing the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the marketplace.
RSL’s founder Ivy Wroe has been honoured internationally for work in developing the company’s sustainable product range. Former Secretary of State for Business Innovation and Skills, Sajid Javid, presented Ivy with the prestigious SME Dahrendorf Responsible Capitalism Award 2016 for her contribution. The awards are managed by FIRST – the multidisciplinary International Affairs organisation. Click here for more information.
Being environmentally responsible
The natural durability of a resin floor means it’s often in place for many years without needing to be replaced, avoiding all the environmental costs involved in uplifting an existing floor, manufacturing a replacement one and installing it again. If you do have to refurbish a resin system, it is easily reapplied over the existing surface. Using resin is proven to reduce waste and energy costs.
