Kraiburg Launches Perivallon Water-Based Solution


KRAIBURG Austria has announced the launch of Perivallon, a new water-based solution which offers both ecological and economic advantages over traditional solutions containing petrol.

First Water-Based Solution Introduced

The new product contains no hydrocarbon solvents and is therefore less harmful to the environment and employees. As a result, there is no longer any need for expensive and often difficult to organise hazardous goods transportation and storage modali­ties. The disposal of empty containers is also unproblematical.

In addition, the applied quantity of Perivallon is only one tenth of that of conventional petrol-based solution which reduces storage space by 90 per cent. Precise dosing of Perivallon therefore makes a major contribution to avoiding waste.

Another advantage is that maintenance and cleaning costs of spray booth, spray guns and filters are much lower. And, since health-hazardous and environmentally harmful vapours are no longer emitted, an extraction device, although recom­mended, is not absolutely essential.

“The name `Perivallon` comes from the Greek and simply means `environment`”, Holger Düx, Sales Manager at KRAIBURG Austria explains. “We are happy, with this product, to be able to make an active contribution to the greatest good of any company, the health of their employees. At the same time, we avoid harmful emissions with com­parably good application results.”

The application is extremely simple: KRAIBURG Austria supplies Perivallon in 20-litre canisters. Owing to the high concentration, ten times the number of tyres in comparison with the conventional petrol-based solution can be processed. Stirring or shaking is only necessary after long standstill times. It is applied using its own spray system including the appropriate spray head which ensures optimum dosing.

Perivallon appears on the carcass initially as a whitish, milky film which becomes transparent within the five to eight-minute drying process. Both the material temperature and the room tem­perature should be at least 15°C during processing. Perivallon is available from March to the end of October. Protected from frost, it can be stored for nine months.
