In December 2008, the EU toys guideline was passed again and the regulations for the use of preservatives, for example, were tightened. The consequence of this is that Benzisothiazolinone (BIT) may no longer be used in paints and varnishes for children’s toys that have to comply with the Standard DIN EN 71-9. With this in mind, Arichemie has developed the BIT-free aqueous ranges of pastes "Vocaflex EN". Use in children’s toys is subject to special controls and is always made with the public interest in view. For this reason, a well-known official institute was assigned with the inspection of the components. The new pastes were tested for compliance with the provisions of EN 7-9 in terms of colorants, preservatives and primary aromatic amines and were found to comply with the standard. In accordance with EN 71, the new product is suitable for colouring children’s paints, finger paints, window colours, silk paints and other aqueous applications in the creative sector.
