RS Industrial Introduces ECO-Squares™, an Adhesive Dot Developed from Biodegradable Materials

Published on 2014-09-30. Author : SpecialChem

BUFORD, Ga. -- RS Industrial, Inc., a leading industrial adhesives manufacturer and distributor, is proud to announce ECO-Squares™, the first-ever adhesive dots conscientiously developed from biodegradable materials.

“Meeting market expectation for a biodegradable hot melt pressure-sensitive adhesive has been a central focus of RS Industrial,” said RSI Sustainability Advisor Matthew Ingerson. “As our customers focus on having biodegradable labels, bottles and packaging, we want to ensure their adhesive is just as environmentally responsible.”

As the first innovation in years to hit the pre-formed adhesive market, ECO-Squares™ aid in accomplishing a truly sustainable product, including the adhesive used to hold it together. During 34 days of bio-methane potential testing, 35% biodegradation of ECO-Squares™ is shown to occur in an anaerobic environment. ECO-Squares™ create less waste through biodegradation and are formulated in a high tack level, making it possible for customers to enjoy high-performance adhesion without compromising the environment.

Unlike hot melts that require heat during application, ECO-Squares™ reduce the risk for burns, offering employees increased safety. The absence of heat also provides customers with long-term savings by decreasing energy costs and down time in their facilities.
