What Happens at an Adhesive Audit?

With Earth Day approaching (April 22), it’s appropriate to think about ways to use eco-friendly adhesives in your products or manufacturing applications.


What makes an eco-friendly adhesive?

At MagPow Industries, the demand for environmentally-friendly adhesives has focused on two aspects:


Reducing overall solvent content and improving cross-linking in the process

Lowering solvent emissions and airborne particles emanating from the adhesive

Meanwhile, government regulations for “green” adhesives include:

The benefits of using eco-friendly products

Versus their regular counterparts, “green” glues are: Eco-friendly


Better for the environment

Employee/operator friendly (less complaints about odours and fumes)

Less harsh on your substrates

There’s a variety of “green” glues available

More and more organizations are choosing “green” glues because they have the same – or in many cases, more – mechanical strength than other products.


Some popular eco-friendly adhesives include:


Solvent-free water based adhesives with low VOC

Naturally derived adhesives (Dextrins and other starch based glues)

Low viscosity adhesives that are curable by UV

Water-based adhesives

When it comes to the environment, there’s nothing more natural or pure than water.


The same goes for water-based adhesives.


Many of which can be formulated to contain zero or minimal VOC’s, including:


H20


Dextrins

Protein glues

PVA glues

Starch glues

Natural rubber latex glues

These new, eco-friendly adhesives are being used in a variety of industries:


Packaging

Stair, Furniture and general woodworking

Book Binding

Product assembly

Custom formulations

The “green” revolution is just getting started

The trend towards greener products has taken hold in every industry imaginable – including adhesive manufacturing.
