New podcast episode: Biocide regulation and coatings
Biocides play an important role in the paint and coatings industry. They ensure that water-based paints reach the customer without microbial contamination or that paint and varnish films are not attacked by any biological growth.
In the current episode, our editor Kirsten Wrede talks to Gabi Büttner (pictured right) about why the European Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) became necessary in the first place, which exists in its current form since 2013.
Gabi Büttner also explains, among other things, the differences between the European biocide regulation and other regulations such as REACH, the ongoing process of evaluating active substances on the market and what challenges this brings for the industry.
