OMNOVA Solutions introduces new technology for floor polishes in Europe that can reduce maintenance costs

Article Type: New products From: Pigment & Resin Technology, Volume 40, Issue 5

OMNOVA Solutions (NYSE:OMN) announces the commercial introduction of Omna-Glo™ 100E in Europe, a novel latex polymer technology for floor polishes. When used as the primary ingredient in floor polish formulations, Omna-Glo 100E polymer can help to reduce the cost of maintaining highly durable and attractive floors.

Omna-Glo 100E latex polymer carries on a rich tradition of innovation by OMNOVA Solutions, which traces its origins to The General Tire and Rubber Company, with a long history of pioneering unique products based on synthetic latex polymers. Floor polishes incorporating Omna-Glo 100E polymer can be made using conventional co-raw materials and techniques to provide exceptional performance. These polishes exhibit ultra-high initial gloss and outstanding gloss retention that lowers costs by extending the useful lifetime of the polished floor. The polishes have especially good detergent resistance that facilitates aggressive cleaning of heavily soiled floors without damaging their appearance, yet can be easily removed using standard stripping methods. This can reduce maintenance costs because fewer repair coats are needed over the life of the floor. OMNOVA Solutions offers a range of recommended formulations employing Omna-Glo 100E polymer for a variety of polish types, including those for low-maintenance scrub and recoat finishes to high-speed burnishable polishes.

“OMNOVA is proud to provide one of the most significant innovations in floor care technology in the last fifty years in Europe,” said Russ Craig, Market Manager, Floor Care at OMNOVA Solutions. “Our strong applications knowledge and deep expertise in synthetic latex technology have brought about this out-of-the-box solution that offers an exceptional value proposition for our customers.” To learn more about Omna-Glo 100E, or to order samples, contact your OMNOVA Account Manager or: info@omnova.co.uk
