As a responsible corporate citizen, Seymour of Sycamore® is thoroughly committed to protecting the natural environment and ensuring the well-being of our employees. This means not only providing a safe, clean and healthy workplace, but also fulfilling our legal and social responsibilities within the community. Our technical staff has developed coatings with waterborne and high-solids resins as an alternative to traditional solvent-based polymers. As a leader in the aerosol industry, Seymour® voluntarily phased out harmful ozone-depleting chloroflurocarbon (CFC) propellants even before the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Food and Drug Administration issued regulations prohibiting CFC use in aerosols in 1978. Seymour® products do not contain lead, cadmium, mercury, chromates or chlorinated solvents. In 1991, California enacted the nation’s strictest limits on emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which produce ground-level ozone. Seymour was the first company to comply with these limits and strives to be proactive in reformulating our products to meet these changing regulations.
