Eco-friendly products from the R-M automotive refinish coatings system by BASF Coatings were certified as "Eco Mark Paints" and recognized as suitable for environmental preservation by the Eco Mark Office of the Japan Environment Association. The R-M brand is the first automotive refinish paint in Japan to receive the Eco Mark certification.

The emission of VOC is used as the measure for Eco Mark certification of automotive refinish paints, and the European VOC emissions regulation standard was adopted as the reference value for certification (enacted by the Japan Environment Association in April 2007). Certification was granted to the R-M brand because its eco-friendly automotive refinish paints has already cleared the VOC emissions regulation standard in Europe.

“We are very proud of our eco-friendly products certified as Japan's first eco-mark refinish paints, “ stated Kazuyuki Nakatsubo, business manager, automotive refinish and commercial transport coatings solutions, BASF Coatings Japan. "Boosted by this Eco Mark certification, we intend to position eco-friendly products as the main line of our portfolio. The advantages for all parties are obvious. Consumers can now easily decide on environmentally-friendly products. We will further support the widespread use of eco-friendly coatings in Japanese refinish market."

The certified automotive refinish coating products by BASF Coatings Japan include Onyx HD the waterborne paint, HydroFiller, HydroxyPrimer and the Stop Multi putty.
