Adhesive Producers 'Keep Calm and Carry on' Over Borate Risks

SpecialChem / Apr 1, 2013

Could your adhesive avoid putting off customers if it had an "exploding chest" pictogram, and the words "May damage fertility. May damage the unborn child" on its packaging? Every adhesive manufacturer should consider whether the raw materials it uses present a risk to its customers, and in turn to its own business. But in the EU that concern has become especially great for companies using boric acid and borax raw materials since June 2010. Then, the European Chemical Agency (ECHA) added them to the candidate list of ‘substances of very high concern', meaning that it is possible that some borate chemicals could be removed from the market altogether.
