The DfE Adhesives Technologies Partnership worked with industry members;
federal, state and local governments; and public interest groups
to develop alternative solvents and processes for adhesive technologies.
Project partners worked to mitigate the health and environmental
impacts posed by adhesives used in numerous manufacturing industries.
The partnership focused on developing safer substitutes
for methylene chloride-based fabricated foam adhesives used in the
fabricated foam furniture and sleep products industry. Alternative
adhesive technologies include aqueous-based, non-chlorinated solvents
and solventless hot melt.
