MAPEI: Adhesives Refill Packaging

April 25, 2012

This company has announced that, beginning this year, it will begin producing Ultrabond ECO® 20, Ultrabond ECO 185, Ultrabond ECO 711 and Ultrabond ECO 810 in 1-gal (3.79-L) plastic pouches, which will be packaged four per standard RSC corrugated box. 

“MAPEI’s floor covering adhesives have an impressive record in terms of low emissions, regional materials, renewable resources, recycled content and more,” said Jeff Johnson, business manager for Floor Covering Installation Systems. “Now, we have taken a close look at sustainable packaging for our materials packaged in pails. In 2010, MAPEI Corp. delivered more than one million 4-gal (15.1-L) plastic pails to the market. A large majority of these pails go directly into landfills as construction waste. This year we are introducing a convenient new type of package that allows installers to reuse existing plastic pails, thereby reducing contributions to landfills and dependency on petrochemical-based packaging.”

MAPEI will deliver its first Ultrabond ECOrefills to distributors in the first quarter.
