Commitment to the Environment
For 20 years Sansin companies have pioneered the use of environmentally-friendly water-borne wood protection technologies that deliver outstanding performance. This technology is inspired by a thousand year-old tradition that uses nature’s own ingredients – resins and gums from the heartwood of trees – to deliver sustainable protection. Our objective – to help wood protect itself – is implemented by developing innovative materials and processes which reduce the impact of our coatings on the Environment. Again and again our history has demonstrated that going green actually enhances performance.
We're proud of environmental initiatives. Of course, our innovative wood coatings, chinkings and sealants already provide consumers with environmentally-friendly alternatives to solvent based products. But that's just the beginning. At our Research and Development Center, we're focused not only on continually improving the performance of our products but also on reducing their environmental impact.
Our wood coatings use a unique water-borne alkyd fomula that combines the benefits of both oil and water-based coatings, reducing environmental toxins - such as VOCs (volatile organic compounds) that contribute to smog and ozone depletion - to almost zero.
Sansin strives to minimize waste and ensure responsible handling of waste products. A unique rinse water recycling system allows production cleaning processes to capture and reuse raw materials otherwise wasted. Regular facility improvements and operating initiatives such as the Sansin Second Nature program focus on energy savings, waste reduction and recycling.
A Greener Tomorrow
Wood is our passion and our commitment to protecting it and the environment is paramount. Our vision is to continually improve our products as well as our environmental practices. As part of our Sansin Second Nature program we are pursuing initiatives such as using alternative green energy, smart car technology, and smart manufacturing processes that move us closer to our objective of operating a sustainable zero waste production facility.
