Innovations

2019

Introducing SIMALFA® CR-free adhesives – the first CR-free one- and two component adhesive for foam-bonding.

The latest product from the SIMALFA® series of water-based adhesives, SIMALFA® 301, closes a gap in the bonding of foams with environmentally friendly adhesives. The enormously high initial tack makes bonding under high tension trouble-free, even when bonding foam to wood, and reduces drying and pressing times to a minimum. In addition to the high initial tack, the adhesive is extremely economical in use. These outstanding properties significantly reduce process times and increase process reliability.
