Is Chematic REACH 2018 Compliant?

Over the last couple years, it has been Dober's commitment to grow into the EU region and being able to comply with REACH 2018 is critical. 


As a global leader of detergents for industries requiring cleaning validation, Chematic has been sourcing raw materials and manufacturing locally in preparation to be REACH 2018 compliant. We have learned a lot along the way and are here to help answer any questions you may have.



Can You Supply One Universal Detergent to Clean All of My Products?

 We get this question all the time. 

We always try to come up with a single source solution if we possibly can. We are well aware and understand the cost implications and timing that it takes to validate a cleaning detergent.



Is Hotter Really Better?

It is a common belief that hotter is better when it comes to the critical cleaning of equipment. While this is true in some circumstances, there are times when hotter temperatures hinder cleaning, especially when working with highly pigmented products.  

Whether the cleaning method is Clean In Place (CIP) or Clean Out of Place (COP), cleaning engineers complain about hazes left behind on their stainless steel tanks. Any haze leftover after a cleaning will cause production downtime, re-cleaning, and unwanted audits. We recently discussed best practices for removing hazes left behind on equipment by products containing the pigment titanium dioxide, such as lotions and sunscreens. Here we focus on a common misconception around cleaning temperatures for highly pigmented  products, such as foundation makeup.

This video displays an example of the importance of cleaning your equipment with the right temperature and correct  detergent. Allowing  you to focus on what really matters... making quality product.
