Franmar Receives EPA-Design for the Environment Recognition

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized the following Franmar products: BEAN-e-doo® Mastic Remover, BEAN-e-doo® Parts Washer, BEAN-e-doo® Textile Ink Remover, BEAN-e-doo® Vinyl Cleaner, and BEAN-e-doo® Undercoating Remover.


These products were recognized for their use of a safer chemistry, which offers the following advantages:


Environmental Protection

Franmar’s qualifying products are formulated with the environment and human health strongly in mind and use the following types of ingredients: biodegradable surfactants, with by-products that are less toxic than the parent compound; solvents that are not hazardous air pollutants and pose no threat to the earth’s ozone layer; and other components with a more positive environmental profile than in conventional cleaning products.


Worker/Consumer Safety

Franmar's qualifying products are formulated to help ensure a safer workplace. Users of these products benefit from ingredients with no components that pose serious hazards. This benefit is amplified for janitors, maintenance staff, housekeepers, and other who must use cleaning chemicals in confined spaces on a daily basis. Importantly, a safer health profile especially benefits children who spend a large part of their day in indoor environments and can be particularly sensitive to the chemicals in some cleaning products. Also, the mild pH, low volatility, and low potential to catch fire enhance the safety profiles of these products.


Resource Conservation

Franmar's qualifying products have certain attributes that may significantly reduce wear and tear on substrates, fabrics, and other surfaces with which the products come in contact, thereby extending their usable life.


Customer Education

Franmar acts as a product steward by providing its customer information on environmental and workers' safety matters, and trains its sales force on the benefit of formulations with improved environmental and health characteristics.
