The USDA Bio-PreferredSM Program is a voluntary labeling program used to certify consumer bio-based products in the U.S. The certification uses the ASTM D6866 standard to measure the biobased carbon atoms in a product. “With so many products in the market place being sold as ‘bio-based’, it’s difficult today for customers to distinguish between what is real and what is green-washing”, states Entropy CEO, Desi Banatao. “With the ASTM certified 37% biobased carbon measurement for our Super Sap 100/1000 system, and our calculated total bio-mass of 50% which includes the bio-based oxygen and nitrogen atoms, we are walking the walk and setting the bar for our industry”, states Banatao.
From their start in 2009, Entropy Resins has pushed the boundaries of what can be done with bio-based materials to create strong, durable, and lightweight performance composites. Today, their customers range from artists and hobbyists, to sporting goods manufacturers and wind energy. Entropy Resins and the USDA BioPreferred Certification Program sets the next standard in verifying biobased content for sustainable performance composite resins.
The Entropy Bio-Epoxy has similar working times to the Resin Research Epoxy and the clear resin is very clear. If you want to reduce your board building carbon footprint this along with Marko Foam’s EnviroFoam is a great place to start! Come on by or give us a call for more info.
