Exton, Pa. – Sartomer Americas has earned the Certified Biobased Product designation from the USDA for its entire SarbioŽ line of 13 specialty acrylates and methacrylates. The certification confirms that these products meet or exceed prescribed USDA standards for renewable biobased content.

Biobased products are materials composed in whole or in significant part from renewable agricultural or forestry products. Sartomer's SarbioŽ acrylate and methacrylate products represent the first full line of (meth)acrylates for use in UV/EB curable coatings, inks and adhesives to earn this certification. 

"Sartomer is proud to receive this designation for our SarbioŽ acrylate and methacrylate products. The new designation will inform customers about our company's mission to provide high-performance building blocks while advancing green technologies," said Dr. Heather Rayle, senior business director, Sartomer Americas. "We pursue environmentally responsible products and processes, and this certification acknowledges our ability to do so while offering a broad range of high-quality chemical solutions for our customers."

The following Sartomer SarbioŽ acrylate and methacrylate products have earned the USDA certification:
