Sicomin, which makes epoxy resin systems, has earned a US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Certified Bio based Product label for its SR GreenPoxy 56/SD GP 505V2 product.

The following Sicomin products have earned the label:

  • SR GreenPoxy 33/SD 4999 with 26% bio based content

  • SR GreenPoxy 56/SD GP 505V2 with 52% bio based content
  • SR Surf Clear EVO/SD EVO MEDIUM with 30% biobased content.

The USDA Certified Bio based Product label displays a product's bio based content, which is the portion of a product that comes from a renewable source, such as plant, animal, marine, or forestry feedstocks.

‘Products from Sicomin are contributing to an ever-expanding market place that adds value to renewable agriculture commodities, creates jobs in rural communities and decreases our reliance on petroleum,’ said Kate Lewis from the USDA BioPreferred Program.
