  • Reduce waste generated from customers’ products destroyed by liquids
  • Reduce waste and emissions created when repairing customers’ products which have been damaged by liquids
  • Reduce waste from the manufacturing line through ease of re-workability generating a reduction in scrapped materials
  • Eliminate harmful chemicals from the manufacturing process
  • Meet environmental targets
