Reabrook’s PBCA technology lands Sustainability Award

Reabrook Ltd are proudly celebrating after their technology for protecting the environment was recognized in a high-profile competition, beating competitors from 80 other firms, managing to secure the Sustainability Award from the British Aerosol Manufacturers’ Association (BAMA).

Judges praised the company for its innovation in introducing a range of compressed air aerosols targeted at industry under their ‘Arrow Solutions’ brand.

The PBCA technology replaces traditional propellants such as Butane and Propane and offers a significant reduction in carbon dioxide that appeals to aerospace, rail, MoD and general engineering customers looking for a greener solution. So far they have sold over 140,000 of these aerosols since their introduction.

“We take our commitment to social and environmental responsibility seriously and that is truly represented by the introduction of PBCA technology for many of our aerosols,” explained Jonathan Lane, our Sales Director for Arrow Solutions.

“In place of using traditional flammable or high Global Warming Potential (GWP) propellants, many of our Arrow branded aerosols are simply powered by compressed air. By removing CO2 and LPG as propellants and replacing them with air that has been compressed, we are able to offer our clients a giant step forward in their desire to deliver a sustainable future.”

BAMA’s judging panel also gave praise for Reabrook being the only company in the world to develop compressed air aerosols for the rail industry, the products are effective in cleaning electrical and mechanical components. The new range is not only eco-friendly but also more cost-efficient than their traditional, gas propelled counterparts.

PBCA technology has also been used in airplane engine component cleaning, component corrosion protection and label removal.

Tony Brealey, Managing Director here at Reabrook, concluded: “The BAMA award is great recognition for the innovation that we are continually looking to provide.

Our products illustrate how traditional aerosol technology can find new ways of supporting modern day challenges, such as greener environmental solutions and improved safety.”
