Harnessing nature's pure power to protect.
A wood-based technology
The NordShield® technology forms an ultra-thin physical layer on the treated surface, free of heavy metals or quaternary ammonium cations (QUATs), providing a long lasting and enhanced protection onto the product. The layer has unique adhesion properties to a wide range of surfaces and inhibits microbial growth on the treated surface or its pores.
The innovative NordShield® technology can be used in variety of ways across industries.
NordShield® follows the GC 12 principles
of Green Chemistry
Green Chemistry (also called sustainable chemistry) has been established by EPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency). Green chemistry is defined as the design of chemical products and processes that reduce or eliminate the generation of hazardous substances. Main aspects of NordShield® technology are that it is biodegradable and replacing toxic components with more sustainable ones (replacing e.g. heavy metals, QUATs and isothiazolinone).
Sustainable production from
forest industry side streams
For the production of NordShield® solutions, we utilise side streams of the forest industry to optimize the usage of our valuable Nordic forests. The end product is a sustainable one, thus fully supporting our partners' sustainability goals.
