Palmer Holland Takes Aim Up North With Palmer Holland Canada Distribution Corp.

Cleveland, OH – February 12, 2019 – Palmer Holland, a leading national specialty chemical and ingredient distributor of raw materials, announced today it has officially launched Palmer Holland Canada Distribution Corporation, a subsidiary of Palmer Holland, in British Columbia.

“The implementation of a Canadian entity will greatly increase service to all of our Canadian customers,” said C. Bradley Steven, President of Palmer Holland. “Ultimately, our goal is to provide an enhanced level of distribution to our customers and principals and facilitate Palmer Holland’s continued growth in Canada.”

This expansion includes a partnership with ADLI Logistics in Mississauga, Ontario for warehousing and logistical services. ADLI Logistics utilizes a network of approximately 30 carrier partners, including small package capabilities via UPS and FedEx. Customers may still place orders with Palmer Holland via email, phone, and fax.

Customers will be particularly excited to know that Palmer Holland is now able to be the importer of record in Canada. Previously, this burden fell on those Canadian companies. Palmer Holland has also established an account with a Canadian bank which means increased electronic compatibility between companies for ACH transactions.

For more information or to address any questions you may have specific to the expansion, please contact your Palmer Holland Account Manager or email info@palmerholland.com

SCAQMD Certifies KradaSol™ from TBF as Clean Air Solvent

 

TBF Environmental Technology Inc., a world leader in the development of environmentally-friendly industrial solvents, has made KradaSol – a Volatile Organic Content (VOC)-compliant alternative – commercially available. It’s the second of three major announcements about industry-changing products that the company is making over a two-month period.


KradaSol is an alternative to slow-evaporating conventional solvents like Hexane, Toluene, Xylene, Aromatic 100, Cyclohexane, Methyl Amyl Ketone (MAK), Perchloroethylene, and Butyl Acetate. Its performance characteristics are similar to these solvents, which it is designed to replace, while eliminating the emission of VOCs and other toxic pollutants.


In its continuing efforts to improve air quality in Southern California, the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) has created a new class of Clean Air Solvents (CAS) for solvents which, among other criteria, contain no more than 25 grams of VOC per liter of material. SCAQMD has certified KradaSol as a Clean Air Solvent.  In addition, independent ASTM 313-91 testing has confirmed KradaSol is VOC-compliant throughout the United States and Canada.


“Until now, the market has only been able to use traditional smog-producing solvents – ones particularly damaging for the environment like Xylene, Hexane, and Perchloroethylene – to dissolve certain block polymers and chlorinated rubbers. KradaSol is both effective and environmentally-friendly in replacing these traditional, toxic solvents,” said David Pasin, President and Founder of TBF Environmental.


“Many Palmer Holland customers use block polymers and chlorinated rubbers and have been challenged to work with them in an environmentally-friendly way,” said Mark Riemann, VP Sales of Palmer Holland, Inc., TBF`s distributor east of the US Rockies. “KradaSol provides a solution they have been looking for.”


“We have experienced a significant demand right out of the gate for TBF`s VOC-compliant solvents,” said Ryan Yokoyama, VP Sales for Dorsett & Jackson, TBF`s distributor on the US west coast. “The CAS designation gives TBF instant credibility in addressing VOC content issues, while we focus on solvent performance,” he added.

SCAQMD Certifies ShiraSol™ from TBF

 

VANCOUVER, BC (November 18, 2015) – TBF Environmental Technology Inc., a world leader in the development of environmentally-friendly industrial solvents, will be making three industry-changing product announcements in the coming months. These products each have the potential to make a significant impact on the solvents industry, and the environment as a whole.


In the first of these announcements, TBF today reported that ShiraSol, a Volatile Organic Content (VOC)-compliant alternative to slow-evaporating conventional solvents such as mineral spirits (Stoddard Solvent, White Spirits), Aromatic 100, Methyl Amyl Ketone (MAK), and Butyl Acetate, is now commercially available.


ShiraSol has performance characteristics similar to these solvents it is designed to replace while eliminating the emission of VOCs and other toxic pollutants.


In its continuing efforts to improve the air quality of Southern California, the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) has created a new class of Clean Air Solvents (CAS) for solvents which, among other criteria, contain no more than 25 grams of VOC per liter of material.  SCAQMD has certified ShiraSol as a Clean Air Solvent.  In addition, independent ASTM 313-91 testing has confirmed ShiraSol is VOC-compliant throughout the United States and Canada.


“TBF has been working on an effective alternative to mineral spirits for a number of years,” said David W. Rowat, CEO of TBF Environmental.  “ShiraSol provides companies an effective VOC-compliant solvent alternative that allows manufacturers to meet the VOC content limits established by SCAQMD, the EPA, OTC and other air quality regulators,” he continued.


“We are very pleased to be partnered with TBF Environmental as they continue to expand their leading line of VOC-compliant solvents,” said Mark Riemann, VP Sales of Palmer Holland, Inc., TBF`s distributor east of the US Rockies.  “A large majority of Palmer Holland customers use either mineral spirits or one of its alternatives and the interest level in an environmentally-friendly alternative to this group of slow evaporating solvents has been very strong.”


“There is a strong level of interest in this product within the market we serve and feedback from customers has been positive,” said Ryan Yokoyama, VP Sales for Dorsett & Jackson, TBF`s distributor on the US west coast.  “Whether it’s in formulation or as a thinner or cleaner the SCAQMD certification has given my customers confidence to move forward,” he added.
