Sustainable foam bonding adhesive solutions

Foam is a versatile material that has become an essential component in many goods, from furniture to car seats and even in airplanes. It provides excellent cushioning and support, making it the go-to material for many manufacturers. However, while foam has been a game-changer in many industries, its production and disposal have posed significant environmental challenges.

As such, the need for more reliable and sustainable solutions has never been more urgent. Fortunately, IFS Industries, has risen to the challenge and is developing innovative technologies to produce more eco-friendly adhesives for foam products.

One area of focus for IFS Industries is the bonding of foam products. In the past, manufacturers used dispersion adhesives, which had a slow build-up of strength and required a longer time to cure fully. Introducing polyurethane (PUR) hot melt adhesives, manufacturers can now produce foam products more efficiently and sustainably than ever before. IFS Industries PUR adhesives meet lowest volatile organic compound (VOCs) levels, setting global standard in quality.

In addition to PUR hot melt adhesives, there are other technologies and solutions that IFS Industries developed to produce more eco-friendly foam products. For example, pressure sensitive adhesives and hot melt adhesives. They also have a lower carbon footprint than traditional solvent-based adhesives.
