The green revolution for boron replacement.

Since 2011, Borax and other Boron salts were included in the candidate list SVHC (Substances of very high concern) by ECHA as cmr-substances. However, Borax is still used as a functional additive in starch based glues.

Gilunal® A is a patented, non-toxic substitute for Borax. Gilunal® A is used for stabilising starchy- and dextrin-containing water based adhesives for the bonding of paper products based on conventional technical procedures.
