Teknikem, A Division of RockinBoat LLC
Teknikem, a Division of RockinBoat LLC, is commercializing RonJohn, a safer more environmentally friendly paint and adhesive licensed from the Y12 National Security Complex. Unlike conventional strippers, RonJohn products are not classified as hazardous air pollutants, carcinogens, or hazardous wastes. RonJohn blends were developed by the scientists at Y12 to meet their need to replace flammable and toxic chemistry that was being phased out at the complex. The same forces that led the DOE to migrate away from flammable and toxic chemistry for removing coatings are also motivating other governmental organizations and private sector companies to make safer and more environmentally responsible decisions in their chemical usage. Until now, the choice has been between dangerous, toxic strippers or green strippers that were in effective; RonJohn is a game changer in this regard offering both good stewardship and effectiveness.
