Registration, Evaluation, Authorization,
and Restriction of Chemicals

REACH requires the registration of chemical substances based on the manufacturing or import volume of each individual registrant. This obligation is required for manufacturers in the European Economic Area (EEA) and for importers into the EEA.

Polymer Solutions Group (“PSG”) and our affiliates (Flow Polymers, SASCO Chemical Group, and Alkon Solutions) have met all registration deadlines and obligations for all substances directly sold into the EEA requiring registration. Some materials may be covered by indirect supply, and some may be exempt from registration. Any changes in REACH status will be communicated through our website. Importers may contact the PSG for written confirmation that the amount of material imported is covered under the applicable registration.

REACH Title IV, Articles 31 and 32 defines the method of communication to downstream users, including registration numbers. For hazardous materials, such numbers are communicated through safety data sheets (SDS).

In addition, PSG does not use raw materials in our product line at >0.1% by weight listed on the ECHA candidate list / SVHC list, most recently revised on 10 June 2023. There are also no raw materials with PBT/vPvB properties in our products. Products also conform to the EU Directive 2011/65/EU for the “Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment,” aka RoHS. No cadmium, hexavalent chromium, lead, mercury, PBB, and PBDE are intentionally added to these products. Additionally, we would not expect these substances to be present in concentrations above 0.1% by weight or 0.01% by weight for cadmium in any of the raw materials that are used to manufacture the SureMix® product line.
