Green Chemistry

For decades, the Tintometer® Group has been known as a producer of reagents for water analysis, which are supplied under the brand name Lovibond®. The wide range of applications requires different types of reagents. Also, users tend to have personal preferences as to which dosage system to use. Our broad product range covers blistered tablet reagents, powder reagents packed in aluminium foil and precise dosing liquid reagents in dropper bottles.

With all our reagents, we strive to keep the formulations as environmentally friendly as possible. Hazardous substances are – whenever possible – replaced by harmless and functionally identical substitutes. Where the required chemistry of the detection method makes the use of these substances absolutely necessary, the concentration levels are lowered to the minimum rate, without compromising the accuracy of the analysis results.

For example, our reagents for Pool & Spa water testing are free from boric acid, which is still frequently being used as an additive in the indus- try. The European Union (EU) has classified boric acid as a dangerous substance. The Lovibond® DPD No. 1 tablets are not only 100% free from boric acid, they also guarantee compliance with the buffering effect required by the standard. This characteristic makes the tablet a leader in its field.

代替硼酸和OTO的 "绿色化学"
为什么我们不使用那些已经发挥了良好作用的物质,而且还在使用?因为它们危害健康,危害环境! 阅读是什么促使我们改变,以及为什么新产品具有同样的质量。
Lovibond® 的私人和公共泳池的水控制指示器上都有绿色的标志。但现在我们的 "绿色化学 "不仅在这里定调。它们也被用于其他用途。
Lovibond® 是最早放弃在试剂中加入对健康和环境有害的物质的企业之一,从而开创了新的局面。一种勇气,后来获得了多项殊荣。
