Biodegradable paint stripper debuts in HDPE bottles

Biodegradable paint stripper debuts in HDPE bottles
TX10 Paint and Varnish Stripper_web

In response to forthcoming EU legislation prohibiting the use of methylene chloride, traditionally a key ingredient in paint strippers, Bartoline has launched its TX10 Paint and Varnish Stripper, a bio­degradable, water-based solution that is not flammable and has minimal evaporation. The company has been working on the new formulation for the past year. TX10 Paint and Varnish Stripper_web
The household product is packaged in RPC UKSC’s blow molded Image and Streamline bottles. The Image and Streamline containers, blow molded in HDPE, offer a stylish contoured shape that incorporates an ergonomic handle and a large decoration area for Bartoline’s distinctive livery. Crucially, extensive trials also confirmed that the container provided a robust, long-lasting home for the TX10 without any reaction with the formulation.
TX10 Paint and Varnish Stripper is available in 500 ml in the Streamline bottle, plus 1 liter, 2.5 liter and 5 liter sizes in the Image container, all closed with a CRC-accredited cap.
