January 7, 2011
Multibond® Contact Cement is a new adhesive that enables manufacturers of furniture and other laminated products to “go green” from beginning to end–with an adhesive that offers strong initial green grab while also helping keep the environment safe.

This company, a division of Franklin International, offers Multibond® Contact Cement, a new adhesive that enables manufacturers of furniture and other laminated products to “go green” from beginning to end–with an adhesive that offers strong initial green grab while also helping keep the environment safe.

Multibond contact cement is a solvent-free water-based neoprene formula that contains no VOCs. As such, it meets LEED requirements for indoor air quality (IAQ) and moves construction projects one step closer to coveted LEED certification. Although safe for the environment, the cement offers all the performance characteristics not always found in green adhesives: strong green grab; quick dry time; and high resistance to water, solvent and heat. Manufacturers can machine it almost immediately after application, speeding up production in their plants for increased efficiency. The ability to clean up this adhesive while it is still wet further reduces production time.
