Addressing odor - one of the hygiene industry’s biggest challenges

ST. PAUL, Minn. - H.B. Fuller Company (NYSE: FUL) announced today that it has signed an exclusive license agreement with Rem Brands, Inc., a specialty chemicals company, for its patented odor removal technology. 

Rem Brands, Inc. is a prolific technology incubator and manufacturer of innovative, high-performance, patented chemistries and proprietary formulas that deliver superior results in odor removal, stain removal and disinfection applications. Based in Kentucky, US, it has chosen H.B. Fuller to be its exclusive channel to the hygiene and disposable absorbent products market for its patented odor removal technology, ODOGard®.

The hygiene industry has long been searching for the answer to true odor control within its products that is efficacious, aesthetically appealing and effective for the duration of the product’s life. ODOGard is a patented technology that chemically and physically changes odor molecules to become odorless. It eliminates malodors without the need for fragrances or masking agents. This proprietary technology delivers superior and measurable results and is safe around people and pets. 

Nathan Weaver, global vice president, Hygiene, H.B. Fuller, comments, “We are thrilled to join efforts with Rem Brands, Inc. We believe this collaboration will provide an opportunity to leverage the strengths of both companies in order to offer our customers a solution to malodor in disposable absorbent products. This step-change innovation will particularly help millions of adult incontinence sufferers and caregivers around the world, and we also are excited to explore use of this solution in baby care, feminine care and pet care.”

Dr. David Schneider, CEO, Rem Brands, Inc., comments, “We believe we have found an excellent partner in H.B. Fuller. We share the same passion to make a positive impact on people’s lives. And, H.B. Fuller has the global reach - from raw material suppliers to absorbent product manufacturers to the companies selling the products to consumers – and the ability to bring our ODOGard technology to the hygiene market.”
