Efficiency and sustainability: are they compatible?
In the production industry, efficiency, low costs, and high quality are what keeps you in business. Sustainability is often seen as a nice-to-have, but it seems rather incompatible with the other requirements due to several aspects negatively influencing the eco-friendliness of a product.
As we have seen above, SIMALFA® fulfils multiple criteria in terms of
- easy handling
Additionally, SIMALFA® is the right choice to protect the environment as well as the health of your workers. Many adhesives contain solvents, which are toxic and therefore harmful for people and the planet. SIMALFA® refuses to use any solvents in their products. Several chlorine- and halogen-free formulated adhesives such as SIMALFA® 360 – the inline specialist we presented above, are offered by SIMALFA®. Sustainability is all about saving important resources and has been a great ambition for SIMALFA® since the company’s foundation.
Our adhesives consist of up to 70% water and therefore contribute strongly to a circular economy. We are pioneers in the field of water-based adhesives for the foam-bonding industry and we will continue striving for even more sustainable and eco-friendly products to support the recycling process of mattresses – you can read all about that here. But our commitment goes beyond the composition of our products: With the solar panels on the roof of our headquarters in Switzerland, we even produce our own sustainable energy.
