Adhesives Additives – Emphasis on Non-Hazardous Development

SpecialChem / Edward M. Petrie – Nov 26, 2012

This article will review several of the new additives that have been recently introduced to the plastic and adhesive industries and how they tend to mitigate such concerns. The focus will primarily be on flame retardants, antimicrobials, plasticizers, and foaming agents as these have been noted for their potential hazardous nature. During the past year or two, many new additives have been introduced for plastics and adhesives. Demands for higher performance, enhanced application methods, and improved cost efficiencies have and will continue to drive new and innovative developments in additives. However, one of the main development trends behind these materials has also been the concern about their hazardous nature – especially in products that come close to the general population, such as packaging (food, medical, and pharmaceutical), children’s furniture and toys, and “Do-It-Yourself” adhesives and sealants.
