The Benefits of Using Global Specialty Products

One of the biggest investments of your spray foam company is the equipment you operate with. Your equipment running efficiently will reduce downtime and increase your profits — solvents and cleaning solutions will make these accomplishments easier. With a variety of solvents available, deciding on the right product can be a very overwhelming decision for your company to invest in. Do not worry! IDI Distributors has a safer and more effective solution.

What are Global Specialty Products?

Global Specialty Products (GSP) are “Safer Products for a Cleaner Environment” because they contain a lower VOC content. Their “Environmental Improvement Process” continually minimizes the environmental impact of daily operations, including waste minimization programs. GSP standards strive for safer alternatives, such as highly performance-driven and cost-effective products that result in total customer satisfaction, innovative environmental solutions, dynamic response and unparalleled quality. GSP has provided alternative and safer solutions for products such as Dynasolve, MEK, Acetones, and more. Not only do they provide safer and effective options, but they are also a disposal source that will make your solvent disposal process easier!

Disposal of Global Specialty Products

All products manufactured by Global Specialty Products USA, Inc. are considered eco-friendly, non-hazardous liquid (solvent-based, aqueous-based and soy-based), recyclable, and free of ingredients listed on California PROP 65 and HAPs. These products offer high resin loading, and once loaded with various kinds of soils, they become “spent” and may fall under the hazardous waste category. It is imperative that the removal of this liquid waste is outsourced by a direct, reputable and resourceful chemical waste management/hauler to characterize the waste and disposal of it according to the state and local EPA regulations.
