Online Training organised by Chemical Watch

Under the EU’s REACH Regulation, hazardous chemicals manufactured in, or imported into, the EU must be accompanied by an SDS. Annex II to the Regulation describes how SDSs – which are used to provide detailed information on chemical substances and mixtures – should be compiled.  Advances in scientific and technical knowledge about substances have led to many changes and adaptations to existing regulatory instruments. This webinar is intended to provide a detailed overview of these changes and how they will affect the requirements set out in the compilation of SDSs.

HEP N-Hydroxyethyl-2-Pyrrolidone, Hydrophilic Co-Solvent for the Formulators Toolbox.
Organised by BASF / BTC Europe (Free Webinar)
8th October, 2020 – 09:30

HEP uniquely combines a high boiling-point and water-solubility allowing for diverse use as a co-solvent or extraction solvent typically in inks, coatings, cleaning, agrochemicals / pharma applications. Its hydrophilic nature and strong polar solubility also suggest its use as a humectant. Current users of 2P, GBL and NMP will be interested to learn that HEP is label-free and can offer a low-tox or more sustainable alternative to standard pyrrolidones.

If you would like to find out a little bit more about the chemistry, characteristics and applications for HEP then please join us for the following session
