Gets GreenGuard Gold certification from UL Environment

KENNESAW, Ga.– Chemique Adhesives has launched a new line of water-based adhesives, ProAqua Mono and ProAqua Office, providing superior bond strength, productivity efficiencies and solvent-free adhesives for the fabrication and furniture manufacturing industries.

ProAqua has recently received GreenGuard Gold certification from UL Environment. GreenGuard certification ensures that a product has met some of the world’s most rigorous and comprehensive standards for low emission of volatile organic compounds into indoor air, according to UL Environment.

The GreenGuard Gold standard includes health-based criteria for additional chemicals and also requires lower total volatile organic compounds emissions levels to ensure that products are acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities. GreenGuard Gold Certified products must also comply with requirements of the State of California's Department of Public Health and furniture industry standards.

“We’re increasing awareness to encourage furniture manufacturers to switch from solvented adhesives to more environmentally friendly water-based adhesives for their superior bond strength, productivity efficiencies and solvent-free nature,” said Tony McMullen, Chemique Adhesives president.

The ProAqua range is applicable for foam fabrication, office seating, upholstery, bedding, transportation and other uses requiring the bonding of foams, cloth, wood, plastics and metals.

ProAqua Mono, a single-part water-based adhesive, is designed for foam, mattress, upholstery, and furniture manufacturing. With a high initial tack, this adhesive bonds a multitude of diverse materials. ProAqua Office, a two-part water-based adhesive, bonds foams to wood and plastic, with no fabric bleed-through and instant tack on difficult substrates.

Both adhesives can be applied with Chemique’s patented eight-gun sprayer, in which Chemique provides engineering and technical support to install and implement.
