Reabrook’s “PBCA” technology lands major industry title

A manufacturer of chemical products is celebrating after its new technology for protecting the environment was recognised by a high-profile competition.

Reabrook, which employs 280 people at its manufacturing plant on the Derbyshire/Leicestershire border, beat competition from 80 other firms to secure the Sustainability Award from the British Aerosol Manufacturers’ Association (BAMA).

Judges praised the company for its innovation in introducing a range of compressed air aerosols targeted at industry under its “Arrow Solutions” brand.

The “PBCA” technology replaces traditional propellants such as Butane and Propane and offers a significant reduction in carbon dioxide that appeals to aerospace, rail, MoD and general engineering customers looking for a greener solution. So far over 140,000 of these aerosols have been sold since their introduction.

Jonathan Lane, sales director for Arrow Solutions, said: “We take our commitment to social and environmental responsibility seriously and that is truly represented by the introduction of ‘PBCA’ technology for many of our aerosols.

“In place of using traditional flammable or high Global Warming Potential (GWP) propellants many of our Arrow branded aerosols are simply powered by compressed air.

“By removing CO2 and LPG as propellants and replacing them with air that has been compressed, we are able to offer our clients a giant step forward in their desire to deliver a sustainable future”.

Reabrook was praised by the judging panel for being the only company in the world to develop compressed air aerosols for the rail industry, which are effective in cleaning electrical and mechanical components. The new range is not only eco-friendly, but more cost-efficient than their traditional, gas propelled counterparts.

The technology has also been used in airplane engine component cleaning, component corrosion protection and label removal.

Tony Brealey, managing director at Reabrook, added: “The BAMA award is great recognition for the innovation that we are continually looking to provide.

“Our products illustrate how traditional aerosol technology can find new ways of supporting modern day challenges, such as greener environmental solutions and improved safety”.

Reabrook manufactures speciality chemical products under its brands Arrow Solutions and Nielsen Chemicals and under private label for their brands Reabrook Health & Beauty and Reabrook Contract Manufacturing.
