Tennant Company (NYSE: TNC), a world leader in designing, manufacturing and marketing solutions that help create a cleaner, safer, healthier world, today announces its Eco-ITS™ bio-based urethane coatings to provide sustainable floor solutions made with 50% fewer petroleum-based chemicals, reduced odor and 21 g/L VOCs (clear), 23-46 g/L VOCs (color). Using a 95 percent plant-based BiOH® polyol, supplied under an exclusive agreement with Cargill, Tennant’s Eco-ITS™ protects floors and offers a sustainable coating application that improves productivity and minimizes shutdowns.

  • Low VOCs – Can be used even in geographies that require low VOCs—21 g/L VOCs (clear), 23-46 g/L VOCs (color)
  • LEED® Credit Availability – Potential LEED Green Building Certification Program credits for Indoor Environmental Quality and Materials and Resources
  • Professional Appearance – Available in gloss, satin and several colors to complement your image and transform your floor

We believe facility managers and sustainability managers will benefit from the use of a bio-based polyol in our Eco-ITS™ gloss and satin urethane coatings.”
