Sustainable alternative versus virgin oil-based binders for paints & coatings, flooring and other industries

June 2022
Gallery SharkDispersions 1
Gallery SharkDispersions 1


SharkDispersions diverts waste from landfills and provides a sustainable alternative to the need of using oil-based binders for paints & coatings. The resulting benefits lead to a better and greener world with significantly lower CO2, GHG emissions, and VOCs. Shark Dispersions are created from damaged laminate glass, which has been sent to landfills in many parts of the world. This upcycling of the interlayer from laminated glass means SharkDispersions are created without having to harvest new raw materials from the planet. The benefit to a paint or coating company also includes more sustainable final products that help meet customer expectation and compliance with CO2/GHG reduction goals.
