Nautique was honored by the Environmental Protection Agency for incorporating Acrastrip, an EPA-endorsed acetone replacement, into its lamination manufacturing processes.

The Health and Environmental Stewardship Award is one of 10 that the EPA has given in the marine industry, and also marks the first recognition the EPA has awarded to a ski/wakeboard boat manufacturer, according to Nautique.

Through the contributions of Ashland Distribution and the entire Nautique lamination team, this non-flammable cleaning fluid allows the boatbuilder to reduce its impact on its surroundings and provide a more eco-friendly environment for employees.
