Chemique Adhesives has launched a new line of water-based adhesives, ProAqua Mono and ProAqua Office, providing superior bond strength, productivity efficiencies and solvent-free adhesives for the fabrication and furniture manufacturing industries. ProAqua has recently received GREENGUARD Gold certification from UL Environment.
GreenGuard certification ensures that a product has met some of the world’s most rigorous and comprehensive standards for low emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into indoor air
, according to the company.
GREENGUARD Gold standard
The GREENGUARD Gold standard includes additional health-based criteria and lower total VOC emissions levels to ensure that products are acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities. GREENGUARD Gold Certified products must also comply with requirements of the State of California's Department of Public Health, and furniture industry standards.
“We’re increasing awareness to encourage furniture manufacturers to switch from solvented adhesives
to more environmentally friendly water-based adhesives for their superior bond strength, productivity efficiencies, and solvent-free nature,” said Tony McMullen, Chemique Adhesives President.
Application of ProAqua Water-based Adhesives
- Foam fabrication
- Office seating
- Other applications requiring the bonding of foams, cloth, wood, plastics and metals
The benefits of ProAqua Range include versatility, heat resistance
, and ease of use.
ProAqua Mono, a single-part water-based adhesive
, is designed for:
- Furniture Manufacturing
With a high initial tack, this adhesive bonds a multitude of diverse materials. ProAqua Office, a two-part water-based adhesive, bonds foams to wood and plastic, with no fabric bleed-through and instant tack on difficult substrates.
Both adhesives can be applied with Chemique’s patented 8-gun sprayer, a flexible, easy-to-use spray system providing increased productivity. Chemique provides engineering and technical support to install and implement the spray system.
