Minimizing our impact on the environment is part of HAI's EcoMission. To be recognized as an EcoMission classification, each of our products must meet at least three out of five environmental criteria.

Custom Coat E-Series meets all five of the criteria to receive the EcoMission designation:

  • Utilizes water or renewable components - Water based components used for manufacture.
  • Utilizes recycled components - Recycled phenol used for resin manufacture to reduce waste generation and recycled sand used when available.
  • Low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) - Lowest free phenol resins available are used to minimize VOC emissions in the coating operation and in the resin coated sand.
  • Low Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAP) - Lower formaldehyde levels generated at core and mold making and low free phenol contents reduce the HAP's generated during use.
  • Low Odor -Formulated with a new deodorizer, along with low nitrogen levels and low free phenol levels, resulting in noticeably lower smoke and odor in the core shop.
