Considering the global megatrend that sustainability has become, the adhesive industry had a bit of a head start. After all, natural materials like tree sap were used as the earliest adhesives known to man, and starches have provided renewable options for adhesive formulations in packaging applications for decades. In addition, hot melts have long represented a significant segment of the adhesive industry; as 100% solids materials, they are inherently quite sustainable. The early shift away from solventborne formulations is another significant example.
Regulatory bodies all over the world are busy discussing PFAS, and—because they are focusing on this topic—they are forcing all producers of PFAS-containing chemical products, as well as manufacturers of articles that incorporate these chemical products, to not only discuss PFAS but to give serious thought to either how to rid their products of PFAS or to why their PFAS-containing products must be protected at all costs.
