Adhesives for Occupational Safety: Part of Our Green Adhesives
Sustainability is diverse. The commitment to increased employee protection distinguishes a company that acts sustainably and responsibly. By using selected adhesives from Jowat Green Adhesives, you as an employer make an important contribution to occupational safety and at the same time optimize your processes.
One-component, moisture-curing PUR hot melt adhesives have been an established technology in the wood and furniture industry for several decades.
In general, conventional PUR hot melt adhesives have an excess of free monomer isocyanate (usually 4-4‘-diphenylmethane diisocyanate – short MDI) in the order of approx. 2 %. Since 2012, products containing isocyanate which have a free monomer isocyanate content of 0.1 % or more need to be labelled with the GHS hazard pictogram No. 8 (health hazard) and the relevant safety information (H and P statements). Adhesives with a free monomer isocyanate content below 0.1 % are not subject to labelling restrictions with regard to hazardous substances.
Jowat has already been working successfully on alternative technologies which are below the limit of 0.1 % since the beginning of the 21st century. The Jowatherm-Reaktant® MR (monomer-reduced) product group from Jowat provides several PUR hot melt adhesives for a wide range of applications which are not classified as hazardous substances.
Jowatherm-Reaktant® MR 607.90 is an edgebanding adhesive and the newest product in this series. The PUR hot melt is suitable for bonding standard edgebands (ABS, PP, PVC, veneer, resinated paper) on throughfeed lines.
Jowatherm-Reaktant® MR 607.90/91 is an adhesive for automatic edgebanders. Wide field of application, e.g. edges made of HPL/CPL, polyester, PVC, ABS, PP, resinated paper, solid wood or veneer.
Jowat® 930.94 is a corresponding flushing agent. For flushing out applicator units for PUR hot melts. Contains a reaction stopper additive, preventing the crosslinking of the adhesive.
