VOC-free formulated adhesives
Due to new regulations and export guidelines, limit values for VOC are being set ever lower. Manufacturers who bond their foams with solvent-based and therefore VOC-containing adhesives are faced with ever greater challenges in meeting these limits. SIMALFA® offers future-oriented solutions with added value since 1990 and avoids VOC-containing ingredients in its water-based adhesives for foam-bonding.
WHAT IS VOC?
VOC are volatile organic compounds which become gaseous already at room temperature. VOC often have a harmful effect on people and the environment or cause unpleasant odours. These, sometimes poisonous, substances are volatilized only after hours or days and are partly responsible for the greenhouse effect. VOC can also cause various health problems for humans. This increases the public and governmental pressure on producers worldwide to avoid VOC-containing ingredients.
