Water-based adhesives have emerged as a real alternative to traditional solvent-based adhesives, offering a safer solution, often with better production speeds and end bonding performance.
Water-based vs. solvent-based
The many advantages of making the switch to water-based adhesives include:
- Better value. Water-based adhesives and associated equipment offer manufacturers improved product design flexibility, more efficient production and superior end-use performance. Water-based adhesives have higher solids than most solvent-based products, offering better, more cost-effective coverage for faster production cycles, less waste and lower inventory and disposal costs.
- Environmentally friendly. Regulatory agencies are increasing pressure on manufacturers to reduce solvent use. Adheco’s adhesives meet or exceed current environmental compliance requirements.
- Safety. Workplace safety is another area where regulatory agencies and insurers are increasing pressure on manufacturers. The elimination of toxic and/or flammable solvents means safer working conditions at a lower cost. Water-based adhesives do not contain flammable components, and foam adhesives contain zero VOCs, eliminating the special handling of toxic or flammable materials.
